The Nokia 8.1 Specifications and Price in Kenya

Nokia 8.1

The Nokia 8.1 is the latest smartphone from HMD Global to launch in Kenya. The phone is currently available in retail stores for Ksh 45,000, not cheap no matter how you look at it. The phone was launched in the country a couple of days back and is available in both single and dual SIM versions. The single SIM version is available through Safaricom shops while the dual SIM version is available through other retail stores.

The Nokia 8.1 is the most expensive smartphone launched by HMD Global in Kenya this year. It is perfect for photographers as the company promises better results than you would get with other smartphones it is competing with. The phone comes with some amazing cameras that we have come to associate Nokia smartphones with.

Below are some of the key specifications of the Nokia 8.1.
