After numerous rumors and speculations, the Nokia 8.1 was launched in India at an event on Monday for a pricing of Rs. 26,999. The device is the global variant of the Nokia X7, which is available in China. Notably, the X7 comes in three storage configurations - 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM. However, the company launched only the base variant with 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM in India for this pricing.
This does not mean that the company will not launch other variants of the Nokia smartphone in the country. As per a recent report by 91mobiles, it looks like the high-end variant of the Nokia smartphone featuring 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM will be launched in India in January.
The report citing the information revealed by Ajey Mehta, the Vice President India at HMD Global stated that the Nokia 8.1 top-end variant will be launched in India next month. However, he appears to have remained tight-lipped regarding the pricing and availability details of the device. Like the base variant, we can expect this one to also be available via Nokia.com, Amazon India and the leading offline stores across the country.
