Nokia 8.1 now official

    Initially announced as the Nokia X7 in China, the Nokia 8.1 is now ready to hit the global market. HMD Global’s latest smartphone entry comes, as expected, with a notched screen and ZEISS lenses.

    The Nokia 8.1 sports a notched 6.18-inch IPS PureDisplay with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 that promises to deliver 500nits of brightness as well as support HDR10 content. The screen also flaunts 96% NTSC color gamut and DCI-P3 support.

    Peeking through the notched display is a single 20MP f/2.0 selfie camera while the rear houses a 12MP f/1.8 Dual Pixel PDAF + 13MP secondary shooter courtesy of ZEISS. The rear cameras are backed by dual LED flash.

    Inside the Nokia 8.1 (2018) is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC with up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. Providing the juice to the smartphone is a 3,500mAh battery with fast charging, which HMD Global says can reach 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes.
