Alleged Nokia 8.1 Plus Renders Reveal Hole-in-Display Design

Today, we are seeing a new rumor that shows renders of a device that is claimed to be called the Nokia 8.1 Plus.

Per the images, the Nokia 8.1 Plus will have a rear glass panel bearing the Nokia logo and the Android One branding. In the same mix is Nokia 6.1 Plus, which is a lone ranger owing that the 6.1 is already in local store shelves. Effectively, the development should get rid of screen cutouts for a more immersive display experience.

From the renders, the Nokia 8.1 Plus features large display with a cut-out notch containing the selfie camera on the top-left corner.

Unlike Nokia's most recent device's which featured the notch, the Nokia 8.1 Plus will supposedly feature a punch-hole display, like the Samsung A8 and the Huawei Nova 4. While it is not yet certain what this model will be called, it's likely to be christened the Nokia 8.1 Plus.

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 display measures 6.22 in size and expected to offer FHD+ resolution.

Fabregas completes move from Chelsea to Monaco
Fabregas arrived at Stamford Bridge as a 2012 European Championship and 2010 World Cup victor with Spain. However, that deal is anything but done, meaning other clubs could still swoop in for the Frenchman.

The full name for the upcoming smartphone is thought to be the Nokia 9 PureView, according to Roland Quandt, after HMD recently acquired the trademark. The phone should boast a dual 16MP rear camera created in collaboration with Zeiss and should be accompanied by the OZO audio technology.

Similarly, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is retailing for as low as INR 14,999.

Best Nokia phones - what are your options?

We just slightly over a week into 2019 but quite a number of smartphone companies have begun to release new phones into our market. Maybe the Plus will feature a flagship chipset to help distance it from the Snapdragon 710-powered Nokia 8.1 (well have to wait for benchmark results to find that out).

I spy: a top headphone jack and a bottom USB-C port.
