ICYMI: Meet the Nokia 7.1 – probably the best midrange Android smartphone available
October 7, 2018

The new smartphone was announced last weekend.

HMD Global has officially taken the wraps off the Nokia 7.1, which is the company’s latest midrange flagship that combines a decent performance at a very affordable price.

Launched at an event in London, the Nokia 7.1 still follows the design aspects of the Nokia 8 but now incorporates a notch where it houses the front-facing camera. The display comes in at 5.84-inches with a 1080-by-2244 pixel resolution. The body is made from aluminum and glass and at 160 grams, it feels light on your hands.

At its back is where you’ll find a fingerprint sensor along with dual cameras. It’s composed of a 12-megapixel main sensor paired with a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. We’re happy that the Nokia 7.1 still kept the 3.5 mm headphone jack which should make legacy headphone owners happy.

Rounding off the specifications include a Snapdragon 636 processor with your choice of 3GB/32 GB and 4GB/64 GB options which you can expand using microSD. The Nokia 7.1 will have a 3,060 mAh battery.

Like other Android smartphones in Nokia’s lineup, the Nokia 7.1 will be part of the Android One program meaning that the device will be getting up-to-date software upgrades and patches from Google just like the Pixel smartphones. The Nokia 7.1 come with Android Oreo, but an upgrade to Android Pie before the year ends.
