Nokia 8.1 now available in Kenya

Starts at Ksh. 45,000

Nokia 8.1 Kenya 45000 Price

The Nokia 8.1 announced back in December of 2018 is now available in Kenya. It comes with a 10nm Snapdragon 710 and features the usual Nokia-style design and Zeiss Optics cameras.

I love the design Nokia went with for their smartphones. From the Nokia 5.1 Plus, the 6.1 Plus, to the 7.1 that I am currently using. They are all really solid, and well built phones. I am not sure about the pricing though. At 45,000 it is very expensive by all standards being that we’ve seen devices like the Pocophone cost less. What are your thoughts: 45k?

I will be sharing a couple of posts on different Nokia phones this coming week, so stay tuned.

The Nokia 8.1 will be available in retail outlets countrywide, and a single-SIM version will be in Safaricom Shops.
