Android 9 Pie officially available for Nokia 8 Sirocco

The device will measure at 156.9 x 76.2 x 7.9mm in size, and will feature a 6.22 inch display as per the leak. Since the phone largely looks like the Nokia 8.1, the report claims that the leaked device is the upcoming Nokia 8.1 Plus. The front-panel will come with edge-to-edge display making its design look sharper.

Theres a regular fingerprint reader on the back too, solidifying the position of the Nokia 8-series as a premium mid-ranger. Nothing is known about the specifications yet, but since the Nokia 8.1 has the Snapdragon 710 processor, it'll be interesting to see which chipset we'll see in the "Plus" model. After all, if you're going to roll back the notch you may as well roll back the "innovation" that preceded it.

The Android 9.0 Pie version brings App Actions, App Slices, Adaptive Battery & Brightness, Notification UI, media volume UI, App Timer etc. Moreover, the device is also resistant to dust and water via IP67 technology.

Last year, we saw a lot of smartphones with the iPhone X-inspired notch cutouts, and it seems that notches are on their way out this year, thanks to the punch-hole display that only reveals a tiny camera cutout. Adaptive Sensor features combine four pixels to enhance low-light photos so you get fantastic night photos. The front camera is placed under the display, and just enough pixels are punched out to remove any camera obstructions.
