  • Nokia 7.1 Brings an HDR10 Display, Impressive Specifications and an Android One Experience in an Affordable Package

While many of HMD's Nokia handsets released since the brand's return in early 2017 never made their way to the United States, the Nokia 7.1 will be available for purchase in Gloss Steel and Gloss Midnight Blue from many major retailers in the country, including Amazon, B&H, and Best Buy, all three of which will start accepting pre-orders on the Android One device from tomorrow.

The hint of copper trim around the edges provides a subtle beauty, and it really feels like the Nokia 7.1 has been created to accessorize with whichever outfit you're wearing. Could this be one of the best mid-range mobiles of 2018? Called the Nokia 7.1, it has arrived as the first Nokia smartphone to utilise its PureDisplay technology.

HMD Global refreshes its mid-range Nokia Android phones for price-conscious buyers. The display on this device offers 80% screen-to-body ratio and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Interestingly, the smartphone also has a dedicated 16-bit engine that can convert SDR content to HDR in real-time. Nokia 7.1 Plus will cost at a starting at €319 and will be available from this month. Poco F1 also comes in a special "Armoured" edition which uses a sturdy Kevlar material and a textured back. Yesterday, the company announced the Nokia 7.1 with Snapdragon 636 chipset, which could be making its way to the Indian market next week. The same processor is found in Xiaomi's Redmi Note 5 Pro which is a tested performer.

Now, it does have a notch, but I can forgive that because it also contains a headphone jack.

More news: Democrats suggest past Federal Bureau of Investigation checks on Kavanaugh include evidence of inappropriate behavior

The "bothie" feature that has become a trademark of Nokia-branded smartphones will be included in the Nokia 7.1 as well.

A 3,060mAh battery with fast charging capability powers the Nokia 7.1 Connectivity options on the smartphone include dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, and Global Positioning System with GLONASS. The cameras will also support HDR photography for crisper and sharper images and EIS will also help with stabalisation while recording videos. The smartphone also lets users adjust the blur effect on photos.

Aside from the new design, the biggest bet for HMD Global is Android One, which means you're guaranteed monthly security updates and patches direct from Google. Speaking of selfies, Bothies, Nokia's photo mode which stitches together pictures from the front and back cameras, has been adjusted to enable resizing the composition of such pics from a 50/50 split to about 70/30, and a few steps in between. What we are looking forward to though is the inclusion of the Pro Camera mode that has been one of the popular camera features in Nokia handsets off late.

The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and will soon receive the latest Android 9.0 Pie update.
