The Nokia 8.1 will be available globally in mid-December at a price of €400. We expect the India price to be a little more aggressive, so you can expect it to fall under Rs 30,000. This is an Android One phone now running Pie, but it will receive OS updates for 2 years and security updates for 3 years.

The Nokia 8.1 is similar in design and hardware to the China-only Nokia X7. It features a 5.84-inch FHD+ "PureView" screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and 2280x1080 pixels resolution. The guaranteed security updates for 3 years and OS updates for 2 make the Nokia line of devices truly unique among the Android OEM line up.

-The new Nokia 8.1 is powered by a the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and Adreno 616 GPU.
