Nokia 8.1 Is Coming To Malaysia This Month for RM 1699

Nokia 8.1 Plus with hole-in-display design and dual-camera setup leaks

Considering the dual-camera design and lack of an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Nokia 8.1 Plus won't be competing heads-up with major flagship devices like the iPhone XS, but it will provide great value still. The leak comes courtesy of 91Mobiles and OnLeaks, which have taken a CAD file and turned it into a render. While initially slower to jump on new trends, the manufacturer has recently become quick to adopt not new technologies but new notches. The Nokia 9 sounds like a higher-end design than the Nokia 8.1 Plus, with a higher model number, an in-screen fingerprint reader, and a insane five-camera setup on the back. The report claims that the phone will offer a 6.22-inch display with a FHD+ resolution.

HMD Global on Thursday announced the roll-out of Android 9.0 Pie update for its Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphone. The rear panel, which will likely be made up of glass, will see Zeiss-branded dual cameras vertically placed just above the fingerprint sensor. Leaked marketing materials showed that the company would be re-branding this specific device with a new name and using it for the Android One program.

At this point in time it isn't clear when the Nokia 8.1 Plus will see the light of day.

Set to arrive as the Nokia 8.1 Plus later on this year, the new smartphone will act as an upper-midrange entry. The Nokia 9 PureView is rumoured to come with a more traditional 18:9 display and will highlight a penta-camera system on the back.
