Nokia 8.1 announced: X7 for the West”

The much-awaited HMD Global will hold its "Expect More" event today in Dubai where Nokia 8.1, the global variant of Nokia X7, is set to go official. It was announced that the handset will be available from December 7 onward. But this is not a new device, its just the Nokia X7 arriving in the Western market. Luckily Chetan Cale, a gifted photographer and member of Nokia Community, was there to take some shots with it. Both the camera sensors are powered by ZEISS Optics. Like Nokia's recent launches such as the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1, the Nokia 8.1 also features a glass back with metal frame running all around. That starts with the 6.18-inch display which features a notch on the top and a chin on the bottom and supports HDR10 for High Dynamic Range. Introduced first with the Nokia 7.1, the Pure Display tech from HMD allows users to stream HDR titles from Netflix and other content platforms.

Nokia 8 (2018) is priced at Euro 399 (approximately Rs 32,000). This is an Android One phone now running Pie, but it will receive OS updates for 2 years and security updates for 3 years. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor under the hood along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.

In the camera department, Nokia 8.1 will sport a primary 12-megapixel sensor, which offers 1.4-micron pixels, dual-pixel autofocus, f/1.8 aperture, and OIS. The Dual-Camera comes with major improvement over the Nokia 7 Plus camera. The rear camera comes with features such as Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization, dual PDAF, AI scene detection and optimization for low-light photography. The phone also has a hybrid microSD card slot for storage expansion.

The Nokia 8.1 will be offered in three colours - Red, Silver and Blue. There's also an 8-megapixel lens up front for selfies and video calls. Charging is via USB C with a 18W fast charger coming in the box to charge the 3500 mAh battery lightning fast. The Nokia 8.1 supports connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/ AGPS + GLONASS.
