Nokia 7.1: Where to buy, when, and for how much

HMD Global launches latest mid-ranger the Nokia 7.1 Nokia 7.1 Brings an HDR10 Display, Impressive Specifications and an Android One Experience in an Affordable Package
| 05 October, 2018, 11:39

The notch - a cut-out at the top of the screen that houses camera, speaker and sensors - has now appeared in a number of flagship handsets on the market such as OnePlus 6 and Huawei P20 Pro.

The 5.84-inch Full HD Plus (2280 x 1080) HDR10-ready display looks bright, colorful, and incredibly sharp. The imaging software of the Nokia 7.1 also supports real-time conversions of SD content into HDR one, delivering better contrast and truer blacks even in videos that haven't been captured with the new display technology in mind.

The improved display should be visible regardless of whether you're watching HDR content, as Nokia claims the handset can boost Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) images to HDR in a process that churns through 500-million pixels each second.

Available in gloss midnight blue (which looks like black, as you can see from our pics) and gloss steel. the 7.1 weighs in at 160g and is 149.7 x 71.18mm in terms of footprint. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform coupled with Adreno 509 GPU and 3GB/4GB of RAM. The phone comes in 3GB/4GB and 32GB/64GB storage options along with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.


The body is made from 6000 series aluminium and the front and back are glass, though you don't get wireless charging. That means you'll be able to use Android Pie's adaptive battery feature, which will help you stretch out the 3,060mAh battery. Interface and PerformanceBeing and Android One device, you'll find near-stock Android 8.1 on this Nokia, but thanks to timely updates, the company says the Nokia 7.1 will receive Android Pie by the end of November. At the rear, the handset gets a pair of 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel cameras with ZEISS optics and a dual-LED flash. These work together to add artificial bokeh blur behind the subjects of portrait-style photographs. The other notable inclusion is Zeiss-branded dual cameras on the back. On the front of the phone is an 8-megapixel selfie snapper. I have had a chance to try out the new Nokia 7.1 ahead of the launch, and here's what I think about the smartphone. The earbuds alone can give up to 3.5 hours of music playback.

The earbuds are both sweat and splash-proof, meaning they can be worn while jogging in the elements outside.

The Nokia 7.1 will open for preorders on October 5th in Europe and the United Kingdom, where it will be priced from £299. HMD claims this native tech can charge the smartphone up to 50% in 30 minutes, which is not bad for the given device in the particular price bracket (between Euro 299 to Euro 349).
