Last year, HMD Global brought back the nostalgia with the announcement of the new Nokia 3310 feature phone.

The timing of Nokia 8 Sirocco's launch is somewhat curious, since most companies will be trotting out brand new top-end models based on Qualcomm's freshly launched Snapdragon 845 processor and the new Nokia 8 Sirocco still uses last year's Snapdragon 835. The Nokia 8110 runs on the Smart Feature OS, which does not allow access to Android apps, but will include its own app store. Few things that remain unchanged from the previous model, is the 5.5 inch polarized Full HD display, 3or 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of onboard storage all housed in a bode built out of a single 600 series Aluminum block.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Android One comes with dual camera setup, it comes with 12 Megapixel primary with 2L7 wide-angle lens and 13 Megapixel secondary with with 3M3 Telephoto lens rear camera with dual tone LED flash.

The Nokia 1 offers the lowest price of the four smartphones announced.

HMD Global, the Finnish manufacturer producing Nokia phones today, said the phone is expected to launch worldwide in May, with a global average retail price of 79 euros.

The specified phone-the slider was produced in the 90-ies and became popular after the movie "the Matrix".

It's been announced that the Nokia 8110 - made famous by The Matrix - is making a comeback. Incidentally, if you've been a Nokia user for long enough, it's worth mentioning that the Nokia 1 has Express-On covers.

The 2.4-inch QVGA display screen is a bit small for the usual tasks one does on big screen smartphones. There's no front camera, but a 2MP snapper makes the rounds at the back. Nokia's new phone also comes with wireless charging, and the phone doesn't overheat since it has a glass body, with a stainless steel frame. The device comes with 128GB of Internal Storage Memory as built-in memory. The front camera is a 5MP Zeiss shooter, which is a huge drop from the 13MP in the Nokia 8. The review praised the device for its impressive battery life and an affordable price tag of $490 United States dollars for something that offers a relatively premium design.

The Nokia 1 is also one of the first Android Oreo Go Edition smartphones.
