It is time for Nokia 8.1 Plus leak featuring high-quality renders and a 360-degree video. Both the images and video show the upcoming Nokia smartphone from the front as well as the back. It seems to be the newest smartphone to feature an in-display camera hole which has started to become a new trend.
The leak has been shared by an online publication 91Mobiles in collaboration with well-known tipster @OnLeaks. It shows Nokia 8.1 Plus with a bezel-less display with no notch. It has a punch hole on the top left corner to house the selfie camera which is more commonly referred to as an in-display camera. It is said to be a 6.22-inch Full HD+ display which looks it is only the glass on the front panel.
On the back panel, it has a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup with Zeiss optics. There is a fingerprint scanner along with Nokia and Android One branding. It is not surprising as HMD Global has already announced that all future Nokia phones will be released under the Android One program.
The good news is that the Nokia 8.1 Plus is said to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack. It means you will not have to worry about what will happen to your old earphones. There is also a USB Type-C port for charging purposes and it has bottom-firing speakers. Since it is an Android One device, it will be running the latest Android One with the promise of software upgrades for at least two years.
The report does not mention anything about the pricing and availability details. We expect to get missing details in the near future.
