Not only we now know that the Nokia 8.1 will be one of the three phones to be unveiled next week, but we are now also certain that the Nokia 8.1 is the global version of the recently announced Nokia X7 in China. These posters have highlighted the design elements of the handset along with some of its specifications and features.

Nokia 8.1 aka Phoenix will be the global variant of Nokia X7 and it launches in India on December 6. Moreover, the case also confirms that Nokia 9 will not have a rear fingerprint sensor and will probably come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Nokia 8.1, as listed here, also has a 20MP front-facing camera, a mid-range Snapdragon 710 chipset, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,500mAh battery which apparently offers up to two days of life.

Newcastle have scored only 11 goals this season, with Rondon and Joselu both scoring twice this season. The defending was poor from West Ham - simple things like tracking back and marking.

The marketing materials also provided additional information about the software features of the device. The Nokia 7 Plus notably received an update to Android 9.0 Pie back in September, and was the first smartphone from HMD Global to get the Pie version - though there were a few hiccups.

After rolling out Android 9 Pie to the Mi A2 a couple of weeks ago, Xiaomi is now following up with the same update for its cheaper sibling, the Mi A2 Lite.

Based on the images, it looks like the smartphone will indeed be the Nokia 8.1, as Nokia usually likes to use the screen clock to indicate the name of its phones. With Nokia's continued participation to Google's stock Android program, buyers of the handset should continue to expect at least two software upgrades from the device maker.
