Nokia 8.1, 2.2, 3.2 launch in the Philippines, priced




HMD Global finally launches the Nokia 8.1 in the Philippines which became official last year as the Nokia X7. This is basically the spiritual successor of the Nokia 7 Plus; however, due to the name change, it seems that the company wants to link it to its flagship family — the Nokia 8.

The Nokia 2.2 comes with a 5.71-inch display, Helio A22 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and 3,000mAh battery.


The Nokia 3.2, on the other hand, has a 6.2-inch display, Snapdragon 429 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and 4,000mAh battery.

Sporting a 6.18-inch display, the Nokia 8.1 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 12MP + 13MP dual rear cameras, 20MP front camera, and 3,500mAh battery with 18W fast charging. Unlike the Nokia X7, the device has fully been updated to Android 9 Pie and it is also a part of the Android One program.

Here are the prices of each smartphone:

  • Nokia 2.2 – PHP 5,990
  • Nokia 3.2 – PHP 7,990
  • Nokia 8.1 6GB + 128GB  – PHP 19,990
