MySmartPrice believes that this teaser may suggest that this Nokia 8.1 will come with a Lush Red color option. The variant of this phone in the Indian market is expected to come with a similar Night Red option.

The Nokia 8.1 will launch at an HMD Global’s even in Dubai on 5 December alongside the Nokia 9 and the Nokia 2.1 Plus. The phone is suggested to be the Nokia X7’s global variant which was just launched in the Chinese market last month. Last month, it also was spotted on Geekbench with specs similar to the Nokia X7. But the phone seems to run Android Pie 9.0.

According to the industry sources, Nokia 8.1 is believed to be priced at Rs. 23,999 in the Indian market for the 6GB of RAM/128GB of storage variant. The Nokia which was just launched in the Chinese market last month is priced at 1,699 CNY (around Rs. 17,340) for the lowest variant of 4GB of RAM/64GB of storage, while the variant with 6GB of RAM/64GB of storage costs 1,999 CNY (around Rs. 20,400) and the top variant with 6GB of RAM/128GB of storage costs 2,499 CNY (around Rs. 25,450).
