Nokia might change the global name of Nokia X7, that was launched in China earlier this month. The name change, though, would be to Nokia 8.1, rather than Nokia 7.1 Plus, as per a tweet from tipster Nokia anew. They claim that Nokia 8.1 was the name change suggested by HMD Chief Product officer Juho Sarvikas, and the phone is expected to debut later in the year.
As per the tweets of Nokia anew, with the Twitter handle @nokiamobileru, Nokia 7.1 Plus will instead be announced by HMD Global at MWC 2019, and no information related to the device is available. This brings new light to the recent leaks around Nokia 8.1, which was spotted recently on Geekbench.
The phone had been listed based on Android 9 Pie, and running the Snapdragon 710 processor. Nokia X7, on the other hand, had been launched in China on October 17.
Sorry, more correct and up-to-date information about 7.1 plus. The announcement will not take place before MWC.
Also, initially Nokia X7 was supposed to get the name Nokia 7.1 plus, but then Juho decided to give another name – Nokia 8.1.

The phone will likely come with Android One branding, and receive the Android 9 Pie update soon. Nokia X7 comes with three storage options: 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage, 6GB RAM/64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage.

Like other Nokia phones, this one also features the ‘Bothie’ mode, by which users can simultaneously record video through the front and rear cameras. Dual SIM VoLTE standby, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headphone jack and type-C USB port are the phone’s connectivity modes.
