Description

Nokia 8 Sirocco is a phone that won't wow you with specs, but will impress you with design. It is made of a solid piece of stainless steel sandwiched between two pieces of curved glass. All this is topped off by a 5.5-inch OLED display. The Nokia 8 Sirocco also offers goodies like a dual camera with 2X optical zoom, wireless charging, plenty of storage, and a clean, bloat-free, up-to-date version of Android.

Displaybenchmark

  • Display size:
    • 5.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2560 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 534 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
