As of right now, there are no plans to launch the phone in the United States, but that could change.
The Nokia 8.1 price has been set at Euro 399 (roughly Rs. 31,900), and it will go on sale in European and Middle East markets from "mid-December". When converted to United States dollars, we're looking at a price of around $450, but again, we're unsure it will come. Nokia 8.1 is the global variant of Nokia X7 which was launched in China.
In the photography department, Nokia 8.1 sports dual 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel cameras with ZEISS optics. The phone also has a hybrid microSD card slot for storage expansion. It will retail for €399 (~RM1885), and will come in three colour combinations; blue and silver, steel and cooper, and Iron and Steel.More news: Liberals adopt new rule to stop the revolving prime ministership

Nokia 8.1 will be a successor to Nokia 7 Plus and will feature a new design and an updated hardware. Like other Nokia phones, the Nokia 8.1 also comes with the Bothie camera feature which uses the front and rear cameras at the same time. On the front, a single 20-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture is expected. Connectivity options are said to include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, FM, 3G and 4G. The Nokia 8.1 bears an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, and proximity sensor. NFC for Google Pay and a rear fingerprint sensor round out the package. It features a two-tone design, and is built out of 6000-Series aluminium that has diamond cut edges and has been through two anodising processes, the company claims. The company is also touting the presence of 18W fast charging.
The Nokia 8.1 will be available in Blue/Silver, Steel/Copper, and Iron/Steel when it launches in mid-December. PureDisplay essentially means to offer higher contrast (1:1500) and a sharper display along with HDR10 support. The handset measures 154.8x75.76x7.97mm and weighs 178 grams. The Nokia 8.1 utilises the latest display technology which HMD calls Pureview display technology.
