Renders for the Nokia 8.1 Plus recently surfaced, and as you can see, the phone has a large, almost bezel-less screen with a small cutout in the top-left corner for its front-facing camera. It might be the Nokia 8.1 Plus, though the Nokia 9 PureView getting a new design treatment would have been a better choice. Unlike Nokia's most recent devices which adopted the notch, though, this particular model will feature a display hole in the top-left corner.
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.
As if leaks of 3D renders and 360-deg video were not enough, now a rumor claims to reveal even more details of Nokia 6.2, the successor to Nokia 6.1. For selfies, the phone relies on a 20MP sensor that is housed within the phone's display notch to deliver the job. It takes creative storytelling to a new level, with its ZEISS optics and perfectly tuned acoustics. The hole punch seems like an improvement, but it's hard to tell since devices haven't launched yet.

According to IBM, the plan is to make the hardware accessible via the cloud to let partners experiment with quantum algorithms. The company also earned patents for blockchain technology as well as for quantum computing uses.
Nokia 8 Sirocco users using Android 9 Pie will enjoy improvements to their smartphone experience based on their daily phone use. This will enable the company to trim down the side and top bezels, but the pictures show that the phone does have a noticeable chin and carries the Nokia branding.
An unannounced Nokia smartphone has leaked in a fresh video and renders, and it bears a close resemblance to the Nokia 8.1 released late a year ago. We should know more by the end of January.
