Earlier this year, HMD Global dropped the hint that the Nokia 8.1 will be arriving the UK soon. Today is the real day, and the Nokia 8.1 has just landed in the UK.
Not so many stores are offering the device at the moment, however, Clove got the 4GB/64GB variant in Blue/Silver and Steel/Copper color options in stock. When you buy a Nokia 8.1 from Clove it is delivered SIM FREE and Factory Unlocked. This means you are free to use the phone with any compatible network provider or carrier.
The Nokia 8.1 is priced at £316.66 VAT excluded, while it will sell for as much as £379.66 inclusive of VAT.
It has a seemingly high-end design, with a metal frame, and a rear that seems like glass material. The device parades a 6.18-inch Full HD+ (2246 x 1080) notched display with supports for HDR10, so you can get the most out of supported content. Beneath that is a Snapdragon 710 chipset and 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, dual rear cameras featuring a 12MP main lens with optical image stabilization and a 13MP depth sensor as well as a 20MP rear sensor.
It boots Android 9 OS and is part of Google Android One program. Rounding off the spec is a 3,500mAh battery with fast charging and which the company claims can last up to two days between charges.
