Android One is clearly the biggest differentiator for the Nokia 7.1 when compared with similarly priced handsets from the likes of Huawei and Samsung. But keep your eyes open, as the company could launch a supercharged version of Nokia 7.1 in India on October 11.
The Nokia 7.1 packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and according to HMD Global, the LCD panel can get noticeably bright. Depending on the area in Europe, the Nokia 7.1 will be available anywhere between 299 to 349 Pounds (approx Rs 28,000 to Rs 33,000). 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 even offers real-time SDR to HDR conversion, meaning you can experience HDR quality entertainment, even when your content is not". Both the models feature a microSD card slot, enabling you to further expand the phone's storage capacity up to 400GB.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global commented on the launch, "We believe the best camera is the one you carry with you, so we've designed a new imaging experience powered by ZEISS Optics, featuring rapid auto focus thanks to the two-phase detection technology to capture your own incredible HDR photography".
Another thing that the Nokia 7.1 brings to the table is that it will provide the user with timely software and security updates.
Talking about the notch, the display has received a special attention in the Nokia 7.1.
"The Full HD+ 5.84" and 19:9 screen ratio display will automatically adjust brightness and contrast to ambient lighting conditions.
In terms of the camera, there are dual cameras on the rear with dual flash - a 12 megapixel f1.8 unit and a 5 megapixel f2.4 secondary one, too. Nokia 7.1 also features "PureDisplay" which enhances HDR viewing experience for content platforms like YouTube and Netflix.
A 3,060mAh battery with fast charging capability powers the Nokia 7.1 Connectivity options on the smartphone include dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, and Global Positioning System with GLONASS.
Having already launched a plethora of smartphones this year, HMD Global is now adding another member to its burgeoning line-up.
The True Wireless Earbuds have a 3.5-hour battery life, while the cylindrical charging case holds enough charge to give up to 16 hours of battery life, according to HMD. The Pro Wireless Earphones also offer vibrating notifications and they last up to 10 hours on a single charge. Best Buy in-store availability will begin November 5.
Design Nokia smartphones are known for their lovely design. The fame is a little more polished and refined on the Nokia 7.1.
