It’s been a welcome return to form for Nokia through HMD global across the last 18 months or so and that impressive run of devices looks set to continue with the Nokia 8.1 being announced for Australian release this morning.
The Nokia 8.1 is HMD Global’s latest edition to their mid to upper end phones. It arrives with their PureDisplay technology in a 6.18″ 1080P display. The Zeiss Optics in the dual camera allow for 20MP AI photography in both day and night.
Inside the Nokia 8.1 is a Snapdragon 710 processor and a battery that promises two day battery life from a single charge. As per usual with a Nokia phone of this calibre it runs Android One with the guarantee of three years of monthly security patches and two major OS updates — not bad when it is already on Android 9.0 to begin with.
It will be available in Blue/Silver and Steel/Copper from both JB Hi-Fi and Officeworks for $699 on the 21st of February.
Our recent experiences with the Nokia range of phones has been very good and this to be much of the same from Nokia — a great phone at an attractive price.
