    I need a camera-centric mobile and almost got the Mi A2.
    After noting the bugs/probs see :
    https://www.techenclave.com/communi...-64gb-starting-21k.187961/page-6#post-2162388
    I held back.

    Looks like it was a good/lucky decision.

    Nokia X7 / 7.1 Plus : 4/64 around Rs 18,000 in China, may be a bit less here, hopefully.
    Android One
    SD710
    micro SD Card
    3.5 mm audio
    FM radio
    Type-C
    most of all :
    (dual) Sony IMX363 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, 1.4-micron pixels, dual-pixel autofocus
    ZEISS optics
    OIS
    Camera 2 API Level 3 support (most prob)

    Puredisplay, DCI-P3 wide color gamut,500 nits brightness,

    EDIT : 3500mAh

    Having the Nokia 7 Plus and using since quite a few months, I will say go for Nokia. In the higher price range, Nokia is putting out really sturdy, reliable phones with good specifications, and most of all, I love pure Android.

    They will definitely release Android 9 for all their phones for which they have promised OS updates for 2 years. I have already got Android 9 on my Nokia 7 Plus.

    Thread is about the updated 7.1 Plus, not the 7 Plus.

    Nokia X7/8.1/Plus is definitely interesting. Android One, frugal yet capable proccy, excellent display, USB type-c with fast charging; seems good enough for successor of Nokia 7 Plus.

    I am thinking that this would replace Nokia 7 Plus here - price point of view; though named as 8.1

    We should wait for the 10th before commenting :)

    Are most mobiles 33% cheaper in China ? I doubt it. Assuming the 8.1 is priced at 24,000.

    Following are my observations for 4+64GB config in all models;

    Nokia 7.1 -> 23,350(HK)/19,999(India)/not available in China
    Nokia 7 Plus -> 29,684(HK)/25,999(India)/19,481(China)
    Nokia 6.1 -> 20,636(HK)/15,999(India)/13,325(China)
    Nokia 8.1 -> 17,429 (China)

    If you observe, Nokia phones are definitely cheaper in China and expensive in Hong Kong. Going by trend of prices in China, 8.1 should be priced around 22-23K. My guess is that it will be HK$2888 here when launches.

    Wonder what's the market in India for Rs 20,000 - 30,000 mobiles.

    Those with the money would opt for flagship/premium mobiles.
    Those without would go in for less than Rs 15,000 - 17,000 models.

    Going to be interesting to see how well the 8.1 sells if priced between 22,000 - 24,000.

    Re the prev post, is the Nokia India pricing strategy different from other makes? I always thought mobiles here were cheaper than elsewhere.
