HMD Global has launched the Nokia 8.1 globally and is likely to be available in India before the end of December 2018. The Nokia 8.1 is the rebranded Nokia X7 and is the successor to the Nokia 7.1 Plus from earlier this year.
This is also the first Nokia phone to come with Android 9.0 Pie out of a box and the company claims that it can last for over two days on a single charge. Design-wise, the Nokia 8.1 has a notched screen with small chin size at the bottom but you’re still going to get the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone.
The phone comes with a 6.18-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2244 pixels.
The Nokia 8.1 is powered by 2.2GHz octa-core processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 400GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Nokia 8.1 packs a 12-megapixel (f/1.8, 1.4-micron) primary camera and a 13-megapixel secondary camera on the rear and a 20-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The Nokia 8.1 is powered by a 3500mAh non-removable battery. It measures 154.80 x 75.76 x 7.97 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 178.00 grams.
