Nokia 8.1 Plus: A punch-hole display?
After Samsung, Huawei, and Honor, the HMD Global brand could be introducing the cutout in-display selfie camera smartphone in a form of Nokia 8.1 Plus. In a partnership between OnLeaks and 91Mobiles, we have received the Nokia 8.1 Plus 5K renders and 360-degree video showcasing the alleged Nokia phone.
The punch-hole design would allow Nokia to introduce a bezel-less display phone with relatively smaller chin sporting Nokia branding. The hold seems to be placed on the top-left corner of the display. The screen could be a 6.22-inch size, which is similar to the Motorola P40 leaked renders.
Coming to the ports, the 3.5mm audio jack seems to be present. There would be a bottom firing speakers placed on the left side along with USB Type-C port and the microphone. Looks like Nokia might not be ready to take the plunge when it comes to the in-display fingerprint sensor. Since, the render showcases the rear mounted fingerprint sensor.
