Nokia 7.1 first impressions: handsome design, speedy camera

This is the same internal setup as the Moto Z3 Play and Asus ZenFone 5 so, if either of those devices is any indication as to how well the 7.1 will perform come launch, this should be a rather speedy phone indeed.

The notch has allowed Nokia to squeeze a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display into the physical footprint of a smaller handset. This 19:9 aspect ratio display is HDR10 certified which is impressive for a "budget" phone and this means you'll be able to enjoy HDR content better that is taken with your phone or uploaded in sites like YouTube. It has just launched the Nokia 7.1 smartphone, which unlike what many expected arrives as a standalone handset without being accompanied by a "Plus" variant. There was no global model of the Nokia 7 but then HMD has made a decision to launch the Nokia 7.1 globally. If you're in the market for an affordable Android device, the Nokia 7.1 is one to keep on your radar. Both the models feature a microSD card slot, enabling you to further expand the phone's storage capacity up to 400GB.

At the backside of the smartphone, the Nokia 7.1 is equipped with two cameras, a main 12MP, F/1.8 one and another 5MP monochrome one that would be used for depth-sensing information.

The servers had been compromised during manufacturing and the chips activated once they were up and running, it said. Apple said that it takes the allegations seriously and that there was no claim of customer data being affected.

While the Nokia 7.1's specifications may not give a Galaxy S9 or LG V40 ThinQ sleepless nights, on paper at least, HMD is counting on smarter camera tech to give the phone an edge. For selfies, the phone relies on its 8MP f/2.0 front camera. The fame is a little more polished and refined on the Nokia 7.1. Optional will be the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds, a pair of compact AirPods rivals that offer up to 3.5 hours of music playback or 4 hours of talktime in a splash-resistant IPX4-rated design. There's a 3060mAh battery included, and HMD says that you can get 50 percent of your battery back in 30 minutes using USB-C fast charging. "The ".1" denotes that the phone runs Android One, Google's close-to stock software that gives monthly security patches. The brand has also promised that the handset will be receiving the Android 9.0 Pie update soon after the release.

Yes, it's coming to the U.S. Prices start from £299 in the United Kingdom, while European customers will have to spend in the region of €299 to €349 depending on their region.
