The new Nokia 8 Scirocco is touted as an ultra-compact powerhouse. Striking is its new look with ultra-slim 2 millimeters fine almost sharp-edged-looking pages. The 5.5-inch edge-to-edge pOLED display features 2K resolution, a slightly curved display, and very narrow edges. HMD uses the front very well, so almost format-filling and makes the Nokia 8 Sirocco with its smaller edges and shaped outside curves to the most beautiful smartphone of the new series.
