Key Features

Latest Google innovations
Unleash the power of AI with Google’s latest Android 9 Pie. It will adapt to how you use your phone and improve over time, keeping things running smoother for longer. And, as part of the Android One family, Nokia 8.1 delivers a clean, intuitive and easy-to-navigate user experience endorsed by Google™ with guaranteed software upgrades and monthly security updates.

App Actions – Exclusive to Android One and Google Pixel
App Actions with Android 9 Pie predicts what you want to do, so you get to your next task more quickly. Your phone will adapt automatically to your morning commute, while you’re at work or relaxing on the weekends.

Your built-in Google Assistant
Just start with ‘Hey Google’ or touch and hold the Home button. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things with smart devices or other Google services. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.

Up to 2-days charge with Adaptive Battery1
Turn on the Adaptive Battery feature on Android 9 Pie for longer-lasting power. It learns how you use your Nokia 8.1, limiting battery usage for the apps you don’t use often. Plus, enjoy powerful Fast-charging.

Flagship quality imaging and free unlimited photo storage
Take exceptional shots with the highly sensitive, industry-leading sensor on the 13MP + 12MP dual camera with ZEISS optics. A wide aperture captures sharper images even in low light, allowing longer exposure times that can be manually controlled with the Pro Camera mode. Even with shaky hands, the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) ensures crisp images and smooth Ultra 4K videos. Better still, get free unlimited high-quality storage with Google Photos for all your memories2.

AI-Advanced 20MP camera for selfies day or night
Take the ultimate night-time selfie with a camera that captures more light by combining four pixels into one super pixel. Add a professional touch to your portraits with studio-style lighting or artfully blur the background with the popular ‘bokeh’ effect. The auto-scene detection is also smart enough to fine-tune settings for you based on subject and lighting. Then unleash your creativity further by using both cameras simultaneously with #Bothies and 3D masks/filters.

Elegant European design with 6.18’’ Full-HD+ PureDisplay
Heralding a new era of precision craftsmanship with the strength of a 6000-series aluminium frame. Your viewing experience is taken to another level with HDR10 delivering higher contrast, great clarity and over a billion individual colours. Whether you’re in a dark room or bright sunlight, playing games or watching videos, your display will deliver the best possible experience.

Fast, AI-powered Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
Leave the lag behind with Qualcomm’s new high-performance Snapdragon™ 710 processor. It boasts a new multi-core AI Engine and Qualcomm® aptX™ audio with high-quality sound over Bluetooth for music lovers.
