Nokia 8.1 Plus: all the news about the smartphone

The rendering of the Nokia 8.1 Plus allows you to understand how the design of the smartphone will be. One of the most interesting novelties is precisely the integration of a front camera inserted into a hole located at the top of the screen. Solution already seen in the Galaxy S10e and that, at least apparently, seems to have struck the imagination of Nokia designers. The display appears very large and also features the fingerprint reader at the bottom. It will be surrounded by an ultra-thin bezel, with a somewhat thicker base. According to official sources, the colors available will be black, brown and blue, and perhaps others whose details are unknown.

The renderings and images leaked from other sources also offer a general picture of the back of the phone. There will be an oval box that will house the three cameras. Underneath is visible the LED flash, which was previously supposed to be located on the side. In the center of the shell will appear the brand name written vertically.

What does the user manual of the Nokia 8.1 Plus reveal?"

The user manual also lets some interesting news shine through. It tells us about the Nokia TA-1188, which is actually the Nokia 8.1 Plus. So let's see what features emerge. In the left side, there will be a side cart in which you can insert its SIM or a SIM and a microSD to expand the internal memory. The right side, on the other hand, will house the volume keys and the power and lock keys of the phone. The bottom will house USB-C port, microphone and speaker. Finally, on the top of the phone there will be a 3.5mm jack and an additional microphone.
