HMD Global has unveiled the Nokia 7.1 at its event held in London yesterday. The phone boasts a great new display, the Snapdragon 636 and Android One functionality, with upgrade to Android Pie soon.
What’s clear by looking at the phone is that it sports a large notch at the front, to accommodate the camera and ear-piece. In addition, the phone has a rear fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port and a MicroSD slot that can take cards of up to 400GB.
Nokia 7.1 Specs
On the rear is a dual camera setup consisting of a large aperture 12MP main camera and secondary 5MP depth sensor. The main camera has two-face detection, fast autofocus and fast shutter speed, the company claims. Camera effects include HDR and bokeh, and there is pro camera functionality so that you can control white balance, ISO, aperture and shutter speed. The Nokia 7.1 gets an 8MP camera on the front.
However, the main highlight of the Nokia 7.1 is its display, dubbed PureDisplay. It sports a full HD+, 5.84-inch screen, the same display as the Nokia 6 Plus, but amped up for the new phone. The display, the company says, is supported by a “16-bit internal HDR processing pipeline”, which boosts any SD content to HD content in real time.
The Nokia 7.1 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 mobile processor, 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64G of internal storage. And rounding up the specs list is an integrated 3,060mAh battery.
