Nokia 8.1 Plus with hole-in-display design and dual-camera setup leaks
Set to arrive as the Nokia 8.1 Plus later on this year, the new smartphone will act as an upper-midrange entry. Unlike Nokia’s most recent devices which adopted the notch, though, this particular model will feature a display hole in the top-left corner. This should then be accompanied by tiny bezels above and on either side of the 6.22-inch display and a slim chin below which is home to the Nokia branding.
Taking a look at the smartphone’s rear, a vertical dual-camera setup can be seen in the middle of the panel complete with ZEISS Optics branding and a dual-LED flash. This is combined with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner just below. Also present on the rear is the Nokia logo and the Android One branding – the device should launch with stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box.
Completing the external setup is a bottom-firing speaker, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Nokia 8.1 Plus will probably be announced next month at MWC 2019 alongside a number of other Nokia-branded devices. However, at the moment, the internal specifications remain unclear. After all, the regular Nokia 8.1 already sports the Snapdragon 710.
