Nokia 8 launched in UAE & Saudi Arabia priced at a cool AED 1699. Availability details inside

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.

    OMG…come to India at below Rs 30000 and you have my money!!
    The generic design and f2.0 aperture will be forgiven at an instant😍😍

  • Just imagine if it launches in India for the same price 😀 That would be a dream come true 😛
    I was expecting Nokia 7 to be launched around 25k in India. I really wish that this phone comes in India below 30k LOL. This really is an Affordable Flagship 🙂
