The Nokia 7.1 is here

It’s been a busy year for Nokia so far, and our favourite Finnish phone maker isn’t letting up just yet, with the release of the Nokia 7.1. So without further ado, let’s lift the lid on the new Nokia’s best bits.

Strong looks, strong glass

The 7.1 has a metal (series 600 Series Aluminium, since you ask) and glass build - and with attractive diamond-cut edges, it really does look like a premium piece of kit. Super-tough Corning Gorilla Glass 3 surrounds it, making the 7.1 impressively damage and scratch resistant.

An edge-to-edge, top notch display

The new Nokia will be rocking a 5.84-inch Full HD display, compatible with HDR content. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, said: “The Nokia 7.1 even offers real-time SDR to HDR conversion, meaning you can experience HDR quality entertainment, event when your content is not.”

The screen goes all the way to the edges of the handset, and yes, the 7.1 is one of many new smartphones sporting a notch on top. It’s where you’ll find the front-facing camera and speaker.

Lenses, cameras, action

The 7.1 has a dual lens main camera, consisting of a primary 12MP lens and secondary 5MP lens to give you that bokeh effect we know you all love. Once again, Nokia has teamed up with ZEISS Optics for their lenses, so expect great looking photographs in both light and dark conditions.

The 8MP selfie camera looks interesting. It’ll be using AI-powered facial recognition for all sorts of fun 3D effects like animated personas, filters and masks.

A peek under the hood

The 7.1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor backed up with 3GB of RAM. That sounds like a set up capable of delivery a smooth and speedy all-round performance.

The 3,060mAh battery should give you a full day of use, and fast charging tech is also on board. According to Nokia, this is capable of charging the 7.1 up to 50% in a mere 30 minutes.

And just like Nokia’s other new smartphones, the 7.1 will be running Android One. This gives you a pure Android experience, fully endorsed by Google. That means you won’t have to wade through needless app, and you’ll get the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from monthly security updates.
