Nokia 8.1 Plus Renders Comes With a Punch hole Camera on a 6.2-inch Screen
Images of a Nokia 8.1 Plus show another change in design direction for HMD â€“ dropping the notch in favor of a punch hole selfie camera. These come from the usually reliableÂ @OnLeaks, but somethingâ€™s not quite right with the device.
Despite the â€œPlusâ€ designation, the phone is essentially the same size as the regularÂ Nokia 8.1â€“ its screen measures 6.22â€. Dimensions are very similar too, the new phone will be 156.9 x 76.2 x 7.9mm, the current non-Plus model is 154.8 x 75.8 x 8mm.
Sure, the punch hole selfie camera opens up a bit of space on the screen, but itâ€™s not a change that will make us go â€œwowâ€. Moving on to the back, 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.
Thereâ€™s a regular fingerprint reader on the back too, solidifying the position of the Nokia 8-series as a premium mid-ranger. Maybe the Plus will feature a flagship chipset to help distance it from the Snapdragon 710-powered Nokia 8.1 (weâ€™ll have to wait for benchmark results to find that out).
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.
The Nokia 8.1 was already a bit of a disappointment â€“ name aside, itâ€™s really a 7.1 Plus.
