Nokia 8.1 Plus renders allegedly show off the company's first hole-punch display

The punch-hole for the camera makes the Nokia 8.1 Plus look much more premium than the notch did.

Nokia 8.1 Plus


Since HMD Global brought back the Nokia brand, the company has been releasing beautifully-crafted mid-range handsets powered by Android One. Thanks to new renders from 91mobiles, it looks like HMD Global is going to continue that streak, this time introducing the Nokia 8.1 Plus with the company’s first punch-hole display.

In many aspects, the leaked renders show off a handset that closely resembles the Nokia 8.1 released late last year. The primary differences pertain to the display and some slight refinements around the rear cameras.

Starting around front, as mentioned, the Nokia 8.1 Plus is dropping the notch for a single punch-hole camera located in the top left corner of the display. This design choice allows HMD Global to reduce the size of the bezels (including the chin) and the drop the notch.

According to 91mobiles, the handset’s display should come in at 6.22-inches and feature an FHD+ resolution.

Looking around the sides of the Nokia 8.1 Plus, you will find the power and volume buttons on the right side of the phone, USB-C port at the bottom, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on top.

Positioned down the middle of the phone’s glass back, you will find dual cameras, a flash, and a fingerprint sensor. At this time, we don’t know anything about the Nokia 8.1 Plus’ camera or internal specs.

Unfortunately, 91mobiles also does not have any information about pricing or availability. The publication is under the impression that we should learn more about the Nokia 8.1 Plus in the coming weeks.
