Nokia 8.1 Plus renders reveal another phone with a hole-punch notch

Nokia 8.1 Plus renders reveal another phone with a hole-punch notch

Just before Halloween of a year ago, HMD Global launched a new smartphone in China called the Nokia X7. Considering the dual-camera design and lack of an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Nokia 8.1 Plus won't be competing heads-up with major flagship devices like the iPhone XS, but it will provide great value still. Since the phone largely looks like the Nokia 8.1, the report claims that the leaked device is the upcoming Nokia 8.1 Plus. This will enable the company to trim down the side and top bezels, but the pictures show that the phone does have a noticeable chin and carries the Nokia branding.

If these renders of the alleged Nokia 8.1 Plus end up being accurate, HMD Global (along with many other smartphone OEMs) are going to be using this same technique for their phone. The 20MP front camera is pretty self-explanatory, as it focuses on taking a selfie and the Bothie feature is back as well with AI-powered 3D personas, masks and fun filters in your photos and videos. We'll let you know when we hear more. It shows the edge-to-edge display of the alleged Nokia 8.1 Plus with a hole in the display on the top left corner like the Galaxy A8s.

The man, whose identity has not been released, returned home, told his roommates about his lucky strike and went to bed. What they uncovered was an elaborate attempt by Saosongyang to seize his roommate's reward.


Specifications for the Nokia 8.1 Plus are anyone's guess, but some details that have been confirmed include a 6.22-inch screen, USB-C port for charging, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The rear panel, which will likely be made up of glass, will see Zeiss-branded dual cameras vertically placed just above the fingerprint sensor.

The Nokia 8.1 was already a bit of a disappointment – name aside, its really a 7.1 Plus.
