The appearance of Nokia 8 in the performance of “Sirocco” is an attempt to restore the trademark, which meant the device belongs to the premium segment. By tradition, which originated from the time of Nokia 8800, the modification of Nokia 8 Sirocco will undergo both technical improvements in comparison with the original, and will receive serious cosmetic refinements. It is about the use of more expensive shell materials and its finishing.
