Nokia 7.1 announced, promises attractive HDR-ready display and dual Zeiss optics

Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

HMD Global today launched yet another new device under its Android One smartphone lineup in the form of Nokia 7.1 during a launch event in London.

Sparse might be good in this case though, and the Nokia 7.1 shows HMD carving out a niche for affordable, widely available smartphones running clean Android with timely updates.

The Nokia 7.1 features a 5.84-inch IPS LCD screen with a notch at the notch and chin bezel at the bottom, which shows the Nokia logo. While the base global model of the handset offers only 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space, the one that's set to be available in the USA will feature twice as much flash memory and 4GB of RAM. It can support HDR 10 and also convert SDR to HDR in real time. Already, HMD rolled out the Pie update to its best smartphone till date- the Nokia 7 Plus, and it has changed the device drastically. 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. For the storage, you can get up to 64GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD card slot.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus bears a dual rear camera setup, with a 16-megapixel primary sensor featuring an f/2.0 aperture and 1-micron pixels, while the secondary 5-megapixel monochrome sensor sports a f/2.4 aperture and 1.12-micron pixels.

The new 7.1 is the first phone ever to launch with "PureDisplay screen technology" which allows HDR-quality images to be displayed in the 5.84 scree. At the front, the smartphone features a single 8MP camera. Aside from the main camera, those are pretty average specs these days but you do get various photo modes including pro and bokeh.

Nokia says the dual-lens camera system should produce better, more accurate low light shots thanks to the improved HDR capabilities.

The company also announced the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds which comes with a charging case. The phone will initially be available to pre-order starting tomorrow in the European markets in two colour variants including Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Silver.

Out of the box the phone will run the AndroidOne version of Android Oreo, though an upgrade to Android Pie is forthcoming. 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). In the USA, the base model, which features 3GB RAM along with 32GB of storage will cost $349, while the European Union version will get it for €319.
