According to a report from 91Mobiles, the Nokia 8.1 will launch in India on the 28th of November for a price of Rs 23,999, which is again similar to the price of the Nokia 7 Plus. However, the company is yet to share the press-invite for the launch of the Nokia 8.1 in India.

Nokia 8.1 specifications

The Nokia 8.1 comes with a 6.18-inch IPS LCD screen, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage with a micro SD card and dual SIM card slots (hybrid).

The Nokia 8.1 has a dual camera setup with a 12 MP primary wide angle lens and a 13 MP telephoto lens. On the front, the device has a 20 MP selfie camera with 1080p video recording capability.

The device has a 3500 mAh Li-ion battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support via USB type C port with a dedicated 3.5 mm headphone jack. The smartphone was launched in China with Android 8 Oreo in China, and the company is expected to launch the phone in India with Android 9 Pie with stock Android OS.

Considering the specifications, the Nokia 8.1 seems like a successor to the Nokia 7 Plus, instead of the Nokia 8, as the Nokia 8 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, which is a much powerful chipset compared to the Snapdragon 660 or Snapdragon 710 SoC.
