Nokia X71 (aka 8.1 Plus) with a 48MP rear camera coming on April 2

HMD has published an invite for the unveiling of the Nokia X71. The event will be held in Taiwan on April 2 and will also feature the Nokia 9 PureView, HMD’s best camera phone for now (but perhaps not once the event is over).

The X71 – which should eventually launch as Nokia 8.1 Plus globally – will be HMD’s first phone to feature a 48MP sensor. This camera will be paired with a 120° ultra-wide shooter, both with Zeiss optics.

This will also be the first Nokia to sport a punch hole selfie camera, as seen in these renders. The screen should measure 6.22”.

But do note that the X71 and 8.1 Plus will not be entirely identical – the X71 is supposed to have a third camera on the back, its function is unclear at the moment. The renders above show the dual camera variant.

Like the Nokia 8.1, the 8.1 Plus is expected to be an upper mid-range device, so don’t expect a flagship chipset. That said, the Snapdragon 710 of the current model is pretty zippy and the PureView uses a chip from last year (the Snapdragon 845 is still faster than the 710, though).
