HMD has launched its affordable flagship smartphone Nokia 8 in major Middle East markets UAE and Saudi Arabia today. What actually raises hopes high for a much better Nokia 8 pricing in markets other than Europe is a competitive pricing announced for these two markets.

Pricing & Release Date:

Nokia 8 is priced at AED 1699 in UAE and at SAR 1699 in Saudi Arabia. It converts to USD 463 which is really very competitive pricing for a flagship device in these markets. If you convert European pricing of EUR 579 to AED it will be around AED 2555. So, now you can realize how much better the Nokia 8 pricing is in Middle East markets.

As we said above, it augurs well for the Nokia 8 pricing in Asian markets too, as pricing in Asian and Middle East markets have mostly been in sync in case of Nokia 3, 5 and 6.

Nokia 8 will be available in UAE and Saudi Arabia starting the second week of September 2017.

Other Markets:

We earlier reported about Nokia 8 availability/pre-order opening in Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Russia, Australia, Portugal and Sweden.
