Nokia 8.1 Plus has another change in design direction for HMD, dropping the notch in favor of a punch hole selfie camera. These come from the usually reliable, but something’s not quite right with the device.
The phone is essentially the same size as the regular Nokia 8.1. its screen measures 6.22”. The new phone will be 156.9 x 76.2 x 7.9mm.
The punch hole selfie camera opens up a bit of space on the screen. Expect a dual camera with Zeiss optics here. No penta-camera like the rumored Nokia 9, which gets spotted more often than Elvis and seems to have similar chances of showing up.
There’s a regular fingerprint reader on the rear side too. Maybe the Plus will feature a flagship chipset to help distance it from the Snapdragon 710-powered Nokia 8.1.
The renders show the Nokia 8.1 Plus will have a USB-C port on the bottom with a loudspeaker to keep it company, while the top side houses a 3.5mm headphone jack.
