Nokia 8.1 launch is definitely near, as confirmed by Google

The exclusive Nokia global brand licensee and one of the top candidates for the year’s most improved smartphone vendor title may or may not be looking to unveil a truly high-end device by the end of the year, but a new “international” upper mid-ranger is definitely right around the corner.

The latest piece of evidence supporting the existence of an HMD Global-made Nokia 8.1 comes from none other than Google. The search giant’s official list of ARCore-supported devices has just been updated again to mention the Nokia 8.1 by a previously unconfirmed name.
Of course, there’s no new information revealed about this somewhat mysterious handset, which should follow in the footsteps of last year’s original Nokia 8 and the 8 Sirocco released earlier in 2018.

Whatever specifications the Nokia 8.1 will end up bringing to the table, it’s definitely good to know Google-sanctioned augmented reality experiences will be supported, as is already the case of the Nokia 8 and 8 Sirocco, 7.1, 7 Plus, 6.1 Plus, and Nokia 6 (2018).

Apart from the unreleased Nokia 8.1, the newest batch of ARCore-certified Android phones includes the Honor 8X, Honor View 10 Lite, Huawei Mate 20 X, Porsche Design Mate 20 RS, OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ3, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, all of which are already out and about.
