“The launch event is slated to start at 5:30pm IST in New Delhi and the Nokia 8.1 price in India is likely to be Rs 23,999”
HMD Global is expected to host the Nokia 8.1 India launch at the event it will be hosting in New Delhi today. The Nokia 8.1 smartphone was launched earlier this month in the Middle East market as the global variant of the China-only Nokia X7. There is no information around the Nokia 8.1 India launch live stream yet, but the event is slated to start at 5:30pm IST so there is plenty of time for that information to come in. Key features of the smartphone include the 6.18-inch PureDisplay screen, Snapdragon 710 SoC, and dual cameras on the back.
Nokia 8.1 price in India
The Nokia 8.1 price in India will likely be Rs 23,999, 91mobiles had exclusively reported last month. This will be much lower than the €399 (roughly Rs 32,000) price tag the company had announced for Nokia 8.1 at the Dubai event. However, the difference is not entirely surprising either since the Nokia 7.1 with a starting global average price of €299 (roughly Rs 25,000) has been launched in India at Rs 19,999. We just have to wait a few more hours to find out what the Nokia 8.1 price in India will be, so sit tight.

Nokia 8.1 features a large 6.18-inch full-HD+ display with aspect ratio of 18.7:9, 86.5 percent screen-to-body ratio, a rather wide notch, and HMD Global’s new PureDisplay tech.
