There's still no news about the Nokia 9, so we'll have to wait a bit for a real high-end Finnish smartphone. But the Nokia 8.1 is already showing itself, and it looks pretty good!
"Expect more", this is the advertising slogan of the Nokia 8.1, which bears the code name Nokia Phoenix and can now be seen in many pictures. The design of the new Nokia smartphone is quite modern with its slim edges around the display, slim frame and curved glass. The camera protrudes slightly at the back.
The pictures also show a fingerprint sensor on the back, which is mounted in the middle below the dual camera. HMD Global hasn't yet provided the new Nokia smartphone with a sensor in the display, but that won't be a big faux pas in 2019 either. The notch in the display of the Nokia 8.1 has meanwhile turned out to be quite wide, which won't please every Nokia fan.
The new Nokia is decently equipped
