Nokia X7 to launch globally as Nokia 8.1; Specs here

HMD Global has begun the launch of 'X' series smartphones with a "Plus" suffix globally. We have witnessed Nokia 6.1 Plus as the international model of the Nokia X6, while Nokia X5 as the Nokia 5.1 Plus. However Nokia HMD Global will launch the Nokia X7 globally as the Nokia 8.1 and not Nokia 7.1 as expected earlier.

The new model has already been spotted in a Geekbench listing out the specifications. HMD Global's Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas is bringing the new smartphone globally with the name Nokia 8.1. The new model is expected to launch in 2019.

Nokia X7 aka Nokia 8.1 runs on Android 9.0 Pie, while it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 with 4GB of RAM. These specs match with the Nokia X7 that was launched in China last week. HMD Global could transform its Nokia 8 family into an upper mid-range smartphone series to take on Samsung Galaxy A series model, and Xiaomi's Mi-series handsets. Nokia 8.1 might not be launched until MWC 2019 that will take place in February.
