The Nokia 8.1 is a solid mid-range handset, featuring a large display, a powerful processor under the hood, and a variety of features that should help the handset standout. 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. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor under the hood along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The battery measures in at 3500mAh.
The Nokia 8.1 will launch with Android 9 Pie out of the box and boast a pair of cameras on the back: 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel shooters with optic image stabilization and ZEISS Optics. Around front, the Nokia 8.1 features a 20MP adaptive front-facing camera. The handset is held together by a durable metal frame.
Nokia and HMD Global’s newest smartphone supports a microSD card up to 400GB for expandable storage, there is a USB-C port for charging, and the battery supports up to 18W fast charging. The device also has a 3.5mm headphone jack for good measure.
The Nokia 8.1 will be available in Blue/Silver, Steel/Copper, and Iron/Steel when it launches in mid-December. It will be priced at 399 Euro (~$452) when it arrives.
