Nokia teases new phone for India – probably the Nokia 7.1 Plus

Nokia is prepping to launch a new phone in India soon and the company took it to Twitter to tease it. The promo shows a backdrop of roses, which is illuminated to show the outline of a notched screen with the tagline “Expect More”.

The likeliest protagonist of the teaser is the Nokia 7.1 Plus, the global variant of the Nokia X7, announced last month in China. However the phone could end up being named Nokia 8.1.

The teaser could be referencing the Nokia 7.1 Plus’ HDR-compliant display and/or the Night Red variant of the Nokia X7.

The picture’s about to get rosy with an epic viewing experience. Get ready to #ExpectMore
