Ever since HMD Global took hold of Nokia and rebooted the franchise, the smartphones resulted are more than just decent. One of the smarter moves was to enlist the devices in Google’s Android One program which would allow the devices to be backed up regarding software for at least 2 years. The Nokia devices were one of the very first to join the program and it proved to be a huge success since we know how much of a pain getting fast Android updates are. Apart from that, Nokia phones offered a variety of categories ranging from budget to mid-range and flagship category.
New renders from Nokia’s upcoming smartphone, dubbed to be the Nokia 8.1 have surfaced courtesy of folks over at 91Mobiles. The render images and the 360-degree view of the device shows a very smooth and geometrically perfect device. One of the most notable features of the device is the adoption of punch-hole camera design. As of recent leaks, it seems that most of the major smartphone kingpins have embraced the concept meaning that the ugly notch will not be required anymore. Moreover, since the device is to launch with flagship grade hardware, we may most certainly expect a Snapdragon 855 SoC with possible 5G capabilities. The renders also conclude that the device will be slightly thicker than average at a thickness of 9.5mm and will, in fact, have a 3.5mm headphone jack with a USB-C connector.
As we move towards the camera’s of the smartphone, at the back we have dual ZEISS labelled sensors with a dual-toned flash. The dimensions of the device are 156.9 x 76.2 x 7.9(mm). With the international markets being invaded by Chinese brands like Xiaomi and Oneplus it certainly is a treat to watch one of the most respected tech giants regain momentum and bring quality technology to the average consumer base.
