HMD Global is going to revive the premium brand Sirocco for mobile Nokia, releasing a smartphone called Nokia 8 Sirocco now according to the latest insiders itis calledas Nokia 8 Pro. As it turned out now, the device will receive the retail name Nokia 8 Pro.
Nokia 8 Pro will become one of the flagships of Nokia’s line in 2018 and will be on sale in August-September.
The source also notes that it is the Nokia 8 Pro that will be the smartphone that was previously rumored to be known as Nokia 10. Google has recently started certifying Android smartphones for Enterprise to make it easy for Business customers to choose a secure and capable device. Google’s “Android Enterprise Recommended” program is the answer to the dilemma of enterprise buyers about which Android smartphones to go for. For the devices to get listed as “Android Enterprise Recommended devices” they need to meet some requirements.
Now, the good news is that Nokia 8 is present in the list of these Android Enterprise Recommended devices posted by Google. You can check the list here.
But keeping the requirements listed by Google in mind we think even Nokia 5, 6 would be able to make it to the list easily. Perhaps HMD needs to push the case with Google. Check the requirements for Android Enterprise Recommended program below.
