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.
