Nokia unveiled Nokia 8.1 Plus after this device was leaked in several leaks, Nokia 8.1 plus is the international the for Nokia X7 which was launched in China some days back.
The device looks almost exactly like Nokia 6.1+ and 7.1+ which were revealed earlier, now the designs for these devices were not bad but when they were launched but right now we are getting so many better looking devices for much less and that’s why Nokia’s design choices appears to be lazy at very least.
Now a part from the design this device has some pretty cool internals starting with Snapdragon 710 chipset which is a reasonable upgrade over Snapdragon 660 giving 20% bump in CPU performance and 35% bump in graphical performance thanks to the latest Adreno 616 GPU. The base variant has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage while there is another 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.Micro SD card slot is available if you need it.
Taking a look at the camera setup the rear setup has two sensors one is a 12MP sensor with f/1.8 and the other one is 13MP, the video from this setup will look great as OIS(Optical Image Stabilisation) and PDAF(Phase detecting Auto Focus) is present, however looking at past record from Nokia we don’t expect AI modes or any other new features.Front sensor is 20MP which is good and comes with their bothie mode out of the box.
Taking a look at the software side of things Nokia 8.1 plus comes with Android Pie and future upgrades are also promised by Nokia, the software installed on Nokia phones is as closed to stock android as possible. The battery in this device is 3500mAh which comes with QC 3.0 over USB-C.The expected price Nokia 8.1 Plus in Pakistan is 60000PKR which is steep.
