Nokia 7.1 with 5.84-inch ‘PureDisplay’ HDR panel, Snapdragon 636 SoC launched

Nokia 7.1 Gloss Steel dual cameras

"HMD does not say the ".1" part of the name out loud, so this is the Nokia 7.

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.

Gadgets Now got some time to use the smartphone one day before the global launch and here's what we think about the newly-launched smartphone.

What are the specs of the Nokia 7.1?

More glass is on the back, with a 6000 series aluminum frame with diamond-cut chamfers. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, USB Type-C (v2.0), GPS/ A-GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The inclusion of a display notch will likely be as polarizing Android consumers as other cutout-equipped devices proved to be, though the mass market already clearly signaled it doesn't consider notches to be a deal-breaker, as evidenced by the excellent commercial performance of recent flagships from Apple and Huawei. Interestingly, the smartphone also has a dedicated 16-bit engine that can convert SDR content to HDR in real-time.

Best of all, the Nokia 7.1 runs Android One.

Impressively, the smartphone also brings HDR10 supporting canvas in a much lower price tag, something that will only add to the viewing experience.

While the 3GB RAM variant offers 32GB of internal storage, the 4GB RAM variant comes with 64GB of internal storage. A microSD card tray with support for up to 400GB of extra storage is included as well, together with dual-SIM capabilities (in a Hybrid SIM setup, meaning you have to choose between an extra SIM card and a microSD one) and a 5.84-inch display panel. The Nokia 7.1 has Zeiss optics on the front and rear side and it's armed with a 3060mAh battery. It is too early to give a verdict for now, but spec-wise they do look like a good combination. For selfies, the phone relies on its 8MP f/2.0 front camera.

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that the Nokia 7.1 is more or less similar to the Nokia 6.1 Plus, barring a few changes here and there.

It is backed by a 3,060mAh non-removable battery that also supports fast charging.

The base 3GB/32GB configuration will start at €319 (Kshs 37K) and the 4GB/64GB one will be €349 (Kshs 41K). So the Nokia 7.1 does seem like it could impress the crowd with some of the features that they don't get to experience in a mid-range handset often. It also has an improved Bothie mode which allows you to shoot videos and photos simultaneously between the front and rear facing cameras.
