Nokia 8.1: This is what Nokia considers a flagship phone

When the Nokia 8 was introduced last year, it was a promising flagship smartphone on paper. It had a top of the line Snapdragon 835 processor, a dual-camera system with ZEISS optics and it’s priced just slightly above RM2,000.

Now there’s a new one and it’s called the Nokia 8.1. While it sounds like a continuation from the flagship Nokia 8, the new 8.1 is basically a global version of the Nokia X7 which is more of a premium mid-range device.
