HMD will launch no "Plus" moniker-ed smartphones in future. With a successor likely on the horizon, Twitter account Nokia Leaks published what could be the successor's specifications.

Today, HMD Global is proud to announce that the Nokia 8.1 smartphone is the latest smartphone lineup to kick off 2019. You can bet mostly all Nokia phones this year to ship with Android Pie out-of-the-box and the Nokia 8.1 Plus will be no different. This has been popularized by Samsung's Infinity-O display, which is basically just a circular hole in the upper corner of the display so the front-facing camera (and other sensors) can be positioned. This could be the same hole-punch display that was featured in recently-leaked Nokia 8.1 Plus renders. 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. 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.

Photography-wise, the Nokia 8.1 features a 1/.55-inch 1.4um 12MP sensor on its back that is also equipped with optical image stabilization and ZEISS optics alongside another 13MP sensor.

According to his family, White had traveled to Iran three times to visit an Iranian woman believed to be his girlfriend. A Department of State spokesperson told the BBC: "We are aware of reports of the detention of a U.S. citizen in Iran".

The Nokia 8.1 was already a bit of a disappointment – name aside, its really a 7.1 Plus. The leak didn't say if the Nokia 6 (2019)'s cameras also support OZO Focus and Zoom, which let you track an audio source and isolate audio to correspond to video zoom, respectively.
