Nokia 8.1 has received a new variant in India. HMD Global, the Nokia brand licensee, on Thursday announced it will be offering the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant of the smartphone in the country. To recall, the Nokia 8.1 was introduced in a single 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant in the country back in December, and the company had revealed soon after that the 6GB RAM/ 128GB variant would go on sale in the country in January. It appears HMD Global has almost kept its word. The Nokia 8.1 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant will go on sale in the country next week. Apart from the added memory and storage, there is no difference between the existing and the new variant of the Nokia 8.1
