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

The first thing we noticed about these renders is that Nokia is following in the vein of other recent devices and using a pinhole for the forward-facing camera to allow for a almost bezel-less display on its next smartphone.

Theres a regular fingerprint reader on the back too, solidifying the position of the Nokia 8-series as a premium mid-ranger.

The renders also show us it will have a 3.5mm headphone port, a USB Type-C connector and will be part of the Android One program as well. The leak comes courtesy of 91Mobiles and OnLeaks, which have taken a CAD file and turned it into a render. As phone bezels get smaller and smaller, the placement of the front-facing camera becomes an issue. For selfies, the phone relies on a 20MP sensor that is housed within the phone's display notch to deliver the job. In contrast, a hole-punch design pushes the display out to every edge of the phone body. The hole punch seems like an improvement, but it's hard to tell since devices haven't launched yet.

The Nokia X7 (aka the Nokia 8.1) followed the 2018 tradition of using a notch at the top in order to reduce those upper corner bezels as much as possible.


Nokia 8 Sirocco users using Android 9 Pie will enjoy improvements to their smartphone experience based on their daily phone use.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, the new Nokia 8.1 was first released in China as the Nokia X7 before making its global debut last month.

Both of these devices are just rumors so far, and as always, the price will be a big determining factor in how well both phones are received. The leak didn't say if the Nokia 6 (2019)'s cameras also support OZO Focus and Zoom, which let you track an audio source and isolate audio to correspond to video zoom, respectively.
