What do you think of Nokia 8.1?
The new Nokia 8.1 will be coming to India and Globally as well before the end of November but it lacks a few features if we compare it with the competition. Its great to see Snapdragon 710 here on Nokia phone. But if we could see an in-display fingerprint sensor that would have been great. But still, we are getting the traditional fingerprint sensor in the back.
