A few months ago we showed you all the news about the Nokia 8 Sirocco. It is the high-end device that Nokia presented in Barcelona on the occasion of the MWC. There we also saw the Nokia 7 Plus, a very interesting mid-range device. Today we can finally announce that the Nokia 8 Sirocco is available in Spain officially. It arrives in a somewhat peculiar way, since it will only be available in a physical store: El Corte Inglés. It arrives a few months later than expected, although it is possible that its design captivates the hearts of some users. Of course, we are sure that some details will not convince you.
We already announced that the device was available on Amazon, but only on sellers outside of Spain. Currently you can buy on this platform, but not officially Amazon Spain. This is why HMD Global has chosen El Corte Inglés to sell this device in Spain. We do not know how much stock they have or the aspirations that this chain of department stores tries to achieve, but with the current conditions we do not believe that it has too much future.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco disembarks in Spain for 799 euros
Although this device is cataloged as a high-end mobile, its processor belongs to the year 2017, something very similar to what LG did with the G6. It is a Snapdragon 835, that although it has all the necessary power to run all the games and applications, we do not think it worthwhile to pay 800 euros for a device with this hardware. In addition, although the design of the Nokia 8 Sirocco is good, there are very improvable points, such as the position and pulsation of the buttons.
Its design makes it difficult to find the button to increase the volume or to block the device. Beyond this is an attractive mobile, very powerful and that may be perfect for certain users. It only has one problem and is that it costs the same as most high-end phones that do have the most current hardware, a better camera and also more successful designs.
We do not know what is the perfect price for this Nokia 8 Sirocco, but of course it is very difficult to recommend this device for the 799 euros it costs. In addition, being a store like El Corte Inglés, the offers will not be the order of the day, so if you want this device we recommend that you take a look at the different Amazon sellers to catch some more attractive discount.
