First impressions:

Coming to our first impressions Nokia 8 Sirocco looks like a piece of pure craftsmanship. It looks beautiful and the edge to edge display is just drop-dead gorgeous. While it doesn’t come with a 18:9 display the 2K resolution 3D glass display looks classy and I am already loving it.

Nokia 8 Sirocco has a stainless steel frame and comes with a 3D glass unibody design. The build-quality is top-notch and it has the Gorilla Glass 5 body. Hence, while it is expected to be tough and scratch-resistant, Nokia 8 Sirocco feels delicate in the hands. More so because you won’t like to hurt such a beautiful device.

Coming to our very first hands-on with Nokia 8 Sirocco, the Snapdragon 835 processor and pure Android combo is just blazing fast. Though stay tuned for an in-depth performance evaluation soon. Stay tuned for more videos and our detailed review of Nokia 8 Sirocco.
