Nokia 7.1 Goes Official: Marks The Debut of PureDisplay Technology

04 October 2018

Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones In addition to the Nokia 7.1 smartphone, HMD also introduced two new wireless audio accessories - Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones. That's not all, you'll be able to enjoy higher contrast (1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) even with standard content, as the smartphone is able to convert normal videos to HDR ones real-time. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel (f/2.2) AI-enhanced camera for selfies and video calls, with support for "3D Personas" (Nokia's take on Animojis). However, the company does have an event scheduled for October 11, where it may launch the 7.1 in the country. Both the Gloss Steel and Gloss Midnight Blue variants of the device give a sense of depth and sturdiness that's unlike anything else now available in the mid-range segment, except for possibly HMD's Nokia 6.1 launched earlier this year.

Talking about the pricing, the Nokia 7.1 has been priced at €299 (~Rs 25,400) or €349 (~Rs 29,700), depending on the region for the base 3GB model, while the price of the 4GB variant hasn't been revealed yet.

The camera comes with features like True Life HDR, Bokeh mode, Pro Camera mode, Livestream functionality, and Bothie. On the front, Nokia 7.1 has an 8MP front-facing snapper.

Why it matters: Quality mid-range devices offering a solid user experience are more plentiful than ever.

MrMobile's Nokia 7.1 Hands-On was produced after three hours with a Nokia 7.1 review device provided by HMD Global. Backing up the entire package is a 3,060mAh battery with fast-charging support. On the bright side, quick charging support is part of the package, with HMD claiming you can recharge your battery to 50-percent of its capacity within half an hour. 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. However, despite the Nokia 7.1 sporting a glass back, which often is used to facilitate wireless charging, there's no wireless charging to be found here.

Yes, it's coming to the U.S.

It also has a glass-metal sandwich like the more expensive phones out there with a 6000 series aluminium frame and available in two colours: Gloss Steel and Gloss Midnight Blue. The phone will ship and hit store shelves on October 28.
