  • Nokia 7.1 Brings an HDR10 Display, Impressive Specifications and an Android One Experience in an Affordable Package

The new smartphone will be available from October 28.

In terms of connectivity, the Nokia 7.1 offers dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, and Global Positioning System with GLONASS.

All of that sounds interesting when a phone is priced at €319 (or approx Rs 27,008).

Which version you can get hold of is region dependent.

The first thing that stands out with the Nokia 7.1 is its handsome design and materials.

As part of the launch of the Nokia 7.1 overnight, Nokia announced they've moved into the truly wireless headphone market with their True Wireless Earbuds. It's one of the few earbuds out there to support Bluetooth 5.0, and the charging case uses USB Type-C instead of the dying micro-USB connector. The Nokia 7.1 has a 5.84 inch display with 2280 by 1080 pixel resolution which is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Rest assured, it looks lovely on first impressions; it's bright and clear, which is precisely what you want from any aspiring flagship-beater. Apps opened quickly, and performance feels snappy during my limited time spent with the device. The phone comes in two RAM and storage configurations - 3GB +32GB and 4GB +64GB. A 3060Ah battery should allow the phone to last a day on a single charge.




A fingerprint sensor is on the back, and there's a microSD card slot to augment the 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage. Although HMD claims that the viewing experience with the Nokia 7.1 will be a good one but we are yet to fully test it. And then there's Android One, which will ensure that you're up-to-date with OS upgrades for two years and security updates for three.

While the phone will not ship with Android 9 Pie, HMD does talk about it in the press release and all of the features it will bring. It's comprised of a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) sensor, and a 5-megapixel (f/2.4) sensor, complete with ZEISS optics and dual-LED flash.

Nokia, quite clearly, is suffering from an announcement problem.

In terms of design, HMD seems to have moved on from what the Nokia 7 Plus flaunted.

On the front of the Nokia 7.1 is an 8-megapixel for selfies and video calls. The Nokia 6.1 Plus also competes against the likes of the new Motorola One Power and the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1. But that doesn't mean that the improvements are meaningful.

The Nokia 7.1 will open for preorders on October 5th in Europe and the United Kingdom, where it will be priced from £299. There's no word of its release in India. However, the company does have an event scheduled for October 11, where it may launch the 7.1 in the country.
