Last week, HMD Global Oy announced to host a product launch in Dubai on December 5. It is widely reported that the company will unveil the Nokia 8.1, the global version of the China-regions specific Nokia X7.
Now, the company's Indian arm has released a teaser video on Twitter. In the clip, Nokia Mobile India shows a spread of rose of petals and in the end, glass silhouette resembling a phone with a notch. This apparently confirms that HMD Global is likely to bring the same Nokia 8.1 in the subcontinent soon after the international launch early next month.
