Nokia 8.1 may launch in India on November 28 with price of Rs 23,999

first_imgApparently there is a new Nokia phone coming. There are fresh rumours that Nokia will soon launch the Nokia 8.1, a phone that is likely the rebranded Nokia X7 available in China, in India this month. And the price of the Nokia 8.1, according to rumours, is going to be Rs 23,999.The latest report on Nokia 8.1 comes courtesy 91mobiles that claims the new Nokia phone with Android One will be launched on November 28 in India. The phone will be priced at Rs 23,999, which would make it a competitor to not only the Xiaomi Poco F1 but also Nokia’s own Nokia 7 Plus.Of late, Nokia’s phones have been pretty stellar, particularly in regards to their design and usability. Chances are that the Nokia 8.1 may turn out to be the same, following the phones like the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 5.1 Plus.Given that the Nokia 8.1 is going to be based on the Nokia X7 that is already available in China, we know almost everything about the phone. The Nokia 8.1 is going to be — if it is indeed based on the Nokia X7 — a phone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, which should be for all practical purposes quite close to the Series 8XX Snapdragons in terms of the performance. It is also expected to come with 128GB storage, 4GB RAM and a screen that will measure 6.1 inches diagonally. The Nokia 8.1 screen is expected to have FullHD resolution. It is also likely to come with a 3500 mAh battery inside it.The Nokia phones, made by HMD Global, run Google’s Android One software that is based on the latest Android. In the case of the Nokia 8.1, this means that the phone will be powered by the Android 9 Pie, which will have the stock user interface and almost no extra bundled apps.advertisementThe Nokia 8.1 will sport a dual-camera setup on the rear. This camera module is likely to have two images sensors — primary one with 13-megapixel sensor and the secondary camera that clicks 12-megapixel images. On the front the Nokia 8.1 is likely to have a 24-megapixel sensor.ALSO READ: Nokia 8.1 could be Android One challenger to Poco F1 and OnePlus 6T in Indialast_img read more
