Nokia 7.1 forums are now open

Four Nokia smartphones will soon receive Android 9 Pie HMD Global confirms Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story
Pete Mitchell | 05 October, 2018, 11:38

The new Nokia 7.1 is official, with HMD taking the wraps off its latest Android smartphone complete with Zeiss camera tech and a slick new display.

Like the rest of Nokia's fleet of smartphones, the 7.1's chassis is crafted from a single block of aluminium.

It also has a glass-metal sandwich like the more expensive phones out there with a 6000 series aluminium frame and available in two colours: Gloss Steel and Gloss Midnight Blue.

There are also some nice surprises down in the guts of the device. The Nokia 7.1 brings some upgraded hardware compared to the Nokia 7. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 636 SoC which is the midrange powerhouse and has either 3 or 4GB of LPPDDR4X RAM or 32 or 64GB of eMMC 5.1 internal storage. Both the options will support storage expandability up to 400GB via microSD card.

The screen of the device is touted as one of its main selling points, with HMD going as far as to give the panel its very own name - PureDisplay. It's running at Full HD+ resolution and is covered with Gorilla Glass 3. It supports HDR 10 and can also convert SDR to HDR in real time. However, the specs are not as good as the Nokia 7 Plus, which launched in February of this year.

Around on the back of the Nokia 7.1 is a dual camera setup with ZEISS Optics. The rear camera supports bokeh effect, Pro Mode and Bothie. The newest addition to the Nokia line-up sports a notched display, marking another step towards omnipresence for a feature that started out as the target of a certain amount of controversy and derision when it appeared on the iPhone X. Because of this, we have to assume Pie will come shortly after the launch of this phone, and since it is an Android One device, rest assured that it will come in a timely manner.

Now, it does have a notch, but I can forgive that because it also contains a headphone jack. There's a 3060mAh battery included, and HMD says that you can get 50 percent of your battery back in 30 minutes using USB-C fast charging. Like most other smartphones in HMD Global's line-up, the Nokia 7.1 too is Android One-certified. The Nokia 7.1 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and comes affiliated to the Android One programme. Greetings Nokia 7.1, welcome to the (ever-increasing) Nokia smartphone family. Nokia 7.1 Plus will cost at a starting at €319 and will be available from this month. The phone isn't coming to India for now and will be eyeing its buyers in the Europe first up with pricing set at 299 and 349 Euros. The base model of the handset that won't be sold in the USA will start at €319 in Europe, whereas the more powerful one should feature a €349 price tag.
