Whereas the Nokia 8 has a 16:9, 5.3 inch LCD of QHD resolution, the Nokia 8 Sirocco came with a 16:9, 5.5 inch QHD p-OLED display. The chipset is still a Snapdragon 835 coupled with a massive 6GB or RAM.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco did not come with the aluminum back used in the Nokia 8, but instead it has a Gorilla Glass 5 in both front and back. The frame in-between is stainless steel. All thanks to the use of glass on the back, the Nokia 8 Sirocco supports Qi Wireless Charging.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco has an IP67 water and dust resistant rating, compared to the IP54 splash resistant of the Nokia 8. With this, you will agree that it is total upgrade.

Finally, there is a complete overhaul in the dual camera system. The Nokia 8 Sirocco now uses the same 12MP regular and 12MP wide camera just like that of the Nokia 7 Plus I discussed about in my previous post.
