Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

The Nokia 7.1 is priced between 299 to 349 Euros (approx Rs 25,000 to Rs 29,600). HMD has baked some special features into the Nokia 7.1 to utilize those cameras, like a Pro Camera Mode that gives you control over the white balance, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.

Unlike most Android device makers, Nokia is all-in with Android One. Right now, the phone has been launched in European markets, but the company could launch the Nokia 7.1 at its scheduled event in India on October 11.

It's a 5.84-inch 19:9 aspect ratio IPS display with a FHD+ resolution. As for the connectivity, it includes USB Type-C port, OTG support, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Global Positioning System and NFC. Pre-orders for the handset will begin on October 5 and HMD will start shipping the product from October 28.

For storage, you've got the choice of 32GB with 3GB of RAM or 64GB with the 4GB, and if you're set to download a lot of apps, games, movies and music we'd recommend going for the slightly larger version. The display brings full HDR10 support, and promises to offer better a more immersive experience thanks to SDR to HDR real-time upscaling throughout the phone. 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. This allows for the Bokeh mode to be activated with the Nokia 7.1, allowing the user to snap images with a background blur effect.

Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, which is claimed to deliver 40 percent improved performance over its predecessor Snapdragon 630.

While the device comes with Android GO as standard, it can be upgraded to Pie once November rolls around. There's been a wave of rumours regarding a new Nokia device or multiple devices to come out in October; the brand has kept the lid on which model it could be ahead of their launch today in London. It's comprised of a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) sensor, and a 5-megapixel (f/2.4) sensor, complete with ZEISS optics and dual-LED flash.

"Almost two thirds of videos around the world are viewed on mobile, which is why we've introduced our PureDisplay screen technology, to give everyone a premium viewing experience on a smartphone", HMD Global chief producer officer Juho Sarvikas said about the new handset. Along with the smartphone, two companion audio accessories - Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones - have also been unveiled. They recharge in the cylindrical storage case - which also has a battery to extend use up to 16 hours overall - and itself charges via USB Type-C.
