Nokia 8.1 Plus is the company’s most modern-looking phone yet

Last year, we saw a lot of smartphones with the iPhone X-inspired notch cutouts, and it seems that notches are on their way out this year, thanks to the punch-hole display that only reveals a tiny camera cutout. As per the report, the phone could be called the Nokia 8.1 Plus, but nothing is certain at the moment.

Sure, the punch hole selfie camera opens up a bit of space on the screen, but its not a change that will make us go “wow”.

The phone will allegedly have a huge 6.22-inch display, with a hole in the top-left corner to accommodate the front camera. The Nokia phone is also rendered with a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top and volume and power buttons on the right side of the frame.

Pre-installed with Android 9 Pie, consumers can expect to have straight forward, pure Android experience as well as security guarantee by Google due to the fact that the Nokia 8.1 is an Android One device.

Set to arrive as the Nokia 8.1 Plus later on this year, the new smartphone will act as an upper-midrange entry. The leak comes courtesy of 91Mobiles and OnLeaks, which have taken a CAD file and turned it into a render.

That back does have dual cameras with ZEISS lenses and a fingerprint scanner at the bottom. For selfies, the phone relies on a 20MP sensor that is housed within the phone's display notch to deliver the job. The Nokia 9 PureView is rumoured to come with a more traditional 18:9 display and will highlight a penta-camera system on the back. We'll let you know when we hear more.
