  1. The price for US model with 4gb RAM and 64gb ROM is 350$ while for international model 3gb ram and 32gb internal memory is around 330$ around 105k to 110k in Naira.

    • Yes, for people that order it from online stores in the US. However, when the phone gets to Nigerian markets, the prices will be higher for reasons such as shipping cost, transportation cost within the country, among other factors. I feel Nokia 7.1’s price will be in the neighbourhood of 143,000 (NGN). Thanks
