Nokia 8 Sirocco finally gets a slice of Android 9 Pie

Nokia 8.1 Plus

Nokia 8.1 Plus

In Europe, the Nokia 8.1's retail price of €399 places it firmly in mid-range smartphone territory.

So, as per this rumor, Nokia 6.1 will come with 6.2-inch display sporting a camera punch-hole and will be powered by the Snapdragon 632 processor. The Nokia 9 has a thick, straight top and bottom bezels that make it seem like something from 2017, while the Nokia 8.1 Plus' hole-punch display gives it a more 2019-era design. 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 small circular hole on the display will house a selfie camera, but the sensor being used is still a mystery at this time. The pictures also show that the 3.5mm headphone jack has been retained, and all the physical buttons are on the left-hand side of the phone.

Per the images, the Nokia 8.1 Plus will have a rear glass panel bearing the Nokia logo and the Android One branding. The phone will be part of Google's Android One program, and while not yet confirmed, we can expect it to ship with Android 9 Pie. OnLeaks, together with 91Mobiles, leaked the handset by sharing renders and a 360-degree video. We will likely see this trend continue for another year or two, but most companies will be moving onto a different method of reducing the forehead bezel of smartphones.

Around back we can see that Nokia's equipping the 8.1 Plus with dual cameras, what appears to be a two-tone LED flash, and a fingerprint sensor.
