It seldom happens. HMD Global has rescheduled the December 6 launch event in New Delhi to December 10. The company has sent revised invites in the last week of November to announce the change in dates for launching Nokia 7.1 officially in India. It means that much anticipated Nokia 8.1 may steal the show on December 10 event.
When HMD Global sent invites for a December 6 event, it was anticipated that the company will come up with both Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8.1. But, the company had clarified through a press release that Nokia 7.1 will be unveiled in this event.
Though the company has not officially declared that whether it will launch Nokia 8.1 and the budget phone Nokia 2.1 Plus together in the event, rumors are prevalent that both these phones will be launched and Nokia 9 may also appear with them.
