Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 8 are much different in terms of design language with Nokia 8 sporting a beautiful yet traditional flagship design with Aluminum unibody, while Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with a modern design with Glass unibody strengthened by a Steel frame.
Once can easily notice reduced bezels, edge to edge display, lack of hardware buttons, Fingerprint sensor moving to the back on the Nokia 8 Sirocco when compared side by side to Nokia 8. While both are good examples of unmatched Nokia Industrial design, the material used and the design differences make the experience different with both. Nokia 8 Sirocco feels more delicate than Nokia 8 when you hold it in hand but it is certainly more beautiful too.
