Offers on the device include 1TB of 4G data on plans starting from Rs 199 for Airtel prepaid users buying the Nokia 7.1.

As with all Nokia smartphones in the Android One programme, you'll get more battery and storage space out of the box thanks to a carefully curated set of pre-loaded apps. Plus, there's a 20MP camera on the front.

-The new Nokia 8.1 is powered by a the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and Adreno 616 GPU.

For imaging, Nokia 7.1 has a ZEISS-enhanced dual-lens camera system at the back, comprised of a 12-megapixel lens and a 5-megapixel lens. Like Nokia's recent launches such as the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1, the Nokia 8.1 also features a glass back with metal frame running all around. The rear camera comes with features such as Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization, dual PDAF, AI scene detection and optimization for low-light photography.
