With impressive processing power, the Nokia 5.1 Plus delivers a great gaming performance and AI imaging features in an accessible, stylish package. While the last year's Nokia 8 came with flagship specifications, the new Nokia 8.1 is the successor to the mid-range Nokia 7 Plus. The company claims to be the largest feature phone player globally.

Nokia 8.1 will go on sale starting mid-December in the European and Middle Eastern markets. As per HMD Global, customers will be able to purchase the phone online and via offline stores. The device comes with Aluminum unibody design and sports a 2.5D curved glass on the front. Those looking to buy Nokia 7.1 can pre-book it from Nokia's official website. Confirmed orders will start shipping from December 7, 2018. In case you're a prepaid Airtel subscriber, you'll get 1TB of data with the Rs 199 plan. Those who are on an Airtel Postpaid line, will receive up to 120GB of extra data. If you need more storage, you'll need a microSD card. However, this offer is only valid on offline store purchases. Notably, it's the first Nokia smartphone to boot the latest iteration of Android. For me Android One is one of the killer features of the HMD product strategy. And yes, it's an Android One smartphone with guaranteed software updates going forward.
