This smartphone is priced at Rs 25,999 in India, and will be available for purchase on e-commerce portal Amazon and Nokia.com/phones.

Both the phones will be available in stores starting April 30. For Airtel prepaid customers, you get 20GB additional data every time you recharge with Rs. 199 or Rs. 349. The phone also features a whopping 16MP camera sensor on the front targeted for selfie enthusiasts.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the company's top-of-the-line smartphone and sports a design where 95 per cent of the body comes with curved glass. With enhanced Dual-Sight, dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics combine an ultra-sensitive 12MP wide-angle primary camera for excellent performance in both low-light and extra bright conditions and a secondary 13MP camera that delivers 2x optical zoom for the moments when you wish you were closer. It features a 5.5-inch QHD P-OLED unit that curves around the sides and features Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 protection against any scratches. For selfies, it features a 5MP f/2.0 front snapper.
