The New Nokia 7.1 Is A Mid-Range Phone With Flagship Specs


The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and will soon receive the latest Android 9.0 Pie update.

Talking about the pricing, the Nokia 7.1 has been priced at €299 (~Rs 25,400) or €349 (~Rs 29,700), depending on the region for the base 3GB model, while the price of the 4GB variant hasn't been revealed yet. As you might be to guess from its name, the new Nokia 7.1 was built upon the foundation left by its predecessor, the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 7. 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. Pre-sale begins October 5th and will be available from Amazon, Best Buy, and BH Photo, with sales beginning November 4th. Now the naming may confuse some people into believing this is a Nokia 7 Plus successor, but it's not. 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.

Talking about the new device, The Nokia 7.1 is the first smartphone to come with PureDisplay screen technology which aims to achieve stunning HDR10 cinematic quality entertainment inside and out. It will be available in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel color options.

Nokia says the dual-lens set-up should produce better, more accurate low light shots thanks to the improved HDR capabilities.

The company also announced the launch of two new audio accessories with the Nokia 7.1 - the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones. The screen comes protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The 5.84-inch FHD+ 19:9 display is packed inside a compact body that belies the size of the screen, with 2.5D curved glass on top and rounded corners adding to the ergonomic feel. With this technology, HMD is aiming to bring HDR displays to the mid-range segment.
