Nokia 7.1 launched: First impressions

Nokia 7.1 launched: First impressions

As for the software, the handset is running Android 8.1 Oreo, but since it belongs to the Android One lineup, there are several benefits to this. You also get Fast charging tech, about which we will talk about at length in the review. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset aided by up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 7.1 has a 5.84 inch display with 2280 by 1080 pixel resolution which is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

These two Bluetooth headphones will on sale alongside the Nokia 7.1, pre-orders start tomorrow. With HDR10 support, the Nokia 7.1 offers a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio with great detail and vibrant colours.

The handset will also sport USB Type-C fast charging, which HMD says will provide a 50% recharge in just 30 minutes. In both cases, you get microSD card support up to 400GB. While the Nokia 7 Plus came with a metal unibody design, the new Nokia 7.1 comes with glass back body.

HMD hasn't been overly eager to bring its Nokia-branded handsets to the U.S. but that changes with the Nokia 7.1, a solid mid-ranger that looks to punch above its weight. At the front, the smartphone features a single 8MP camera. On another hand, the 4GB/64GB variant has an average retail price of European Union 349 (about RM 1665).

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. 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 device will also get an upgrade to the latest Android 9.0 Pie soon.




One of the highlights of the Nokia 7.1 smartphone is the presence of Carl Zeiss optics for the front and rear camera setup.

Presales of Nokia 7.1 kick off today in the US, UK, and Europe.

The True Wireless Earbuds offer ultimate portability. 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.

The new Nokia 7.1 will be rolled out into the market starting from this month onwards with a global average price tag of European Union 319 (about RM 1522) for the 3GB/32GB variant.

The widespread availability - crucially, including in-store at Best Buy from early next month - should put this phone front and center in front of prospective buyers and it has a real chance of being a success for Nokia stateside. You can also keep an eye on the official product pages linked above to know when they're available for purchase.
