Following their unveiling at Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC), HMD Global has announced the latest suite of Nokia phones will land in Australia this week. Apart from online stores, these phones are also available from Nokia Shop and other offline retail stores in India. The Nokia 1 is an Android Go device, whereas the Nokia 8 Sirocco, 7 Plus, and 6 2018 edition come with Android One, which ensures faster updates.

The mid-range smartphone features a 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display. The phone sports a curvy design this time, unlike the previous Nokia phones, which had chamfered/ beveled edges. On the front is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with display flash, and f/2.0 aperture. It also carries the IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. Powering the device is a 3,260 mAh battery that also supports Quick Charge. There is a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera with which the phone can be unlocked. Apart from the upgrade to 8.1 Oreo, it brings better battery management through the "Battery saving navigation buttons" that auto-dims the brightness whenever the smartphone is not in use. With a width of just 7.5mm, the smartphone looks stunning. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, microUSB 2.0, and rear fingerprint sensor.
