After being announced globally in Dubai, Nokia 8.1 is officially launched in India at the local #ExpectMore event. Nokia 8.1 will be sold for Rs. 26,999, which is Rs. 1000 more than its predecessor Nokia 7 Plus. The device will be available offline at various top mobile retailers, and on Nokia.com and local Amazon web store. All the interested Nokia fans in India can already preorder the device from Nokia.com and Amazon (not listed yet).
It is nice to see that Nokia Mobile India called Nokia fans from India to the event. That used to be a practice of former Nokia Devices & Services department, and it should be continued in the future. Another thing that Nokia Mobile should continue doing in the future is being careful not to tweet from iPhone :).
