When Nokia launched the Nokia X6 in the global market, it was called Nokia 6.1 Plus. Also, the Nokia X5 sold in the Chinese was renamed to Nokia 5.1 Plus when it made into the global market. According to the trend, the Nokia X7, which is soon to make its way into the global market was expected to be called as the Nokia 7.1 Plus. But the latest reports reveals that it will be called as the Nokia 8.1 in the global market.
The Nokia 8.1 was first spotted on Geekbench a few days ago. Enthusiasts across the world were disappointed thinking that the Nokia 8.1 is the successor of the Nokia 8. While the Nokia 8 came with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the Nokia 8.1 will be coming with Snapdragon 710, causing the disappointment.
Later, a tweet made by @Nokiamobileru cleared up the cloud and revealed that the Nokia 8.1 is in-fact the Nokia X7. According to the tweet, the Nokia X7 was supposed to get the name Nokia 7.1 Plus, following the trend they have been following. But Juho Sarvikas, chief product manager at HMD Global decided to change the name of the device into Nokia 8.1. The account claims that they were informed of the name change by unnamed sources in the company.

Further, a report from Phonearena reveals that HMD Global, the parent company of Nokia brand, is trying to convert the Nokia 8 series into an upper mid-range series while the Nokia 9 PureView will be the company’s flagship model scheduled to launch early next year.
The twitter handle @nokiamobileru, in another tweet said that there is indeed a device called Nokia 7.1 Plus apart from the renamed Nokia X7, and it will be launched only in next year. It will most likely be powered by a Snapdragon 670 processor. The Nokia 8.1 will be launched globally within this year.
It is to be noted that all these recent reports adds fuel to the rumour that Nokia is in fact trying convert the Nokia 8 series into an upper mid-range series.
