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.
