Nokia 7.1 launched: Specs, features, price and everything you need to know

The Nokia 7.1 comes preloaded with Android One, based on Android Oreo. Also, one of the headphones is truly wireless and minuscule.

The phone itself is powered by the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform and includes a USB type-C fast charging port that promises to provide up to 50 percent of your battery power in 30 mins. It's protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 and supports HDR10, which is a true rarity in the mid-range market segment.

The Nokia 7.1 will go on pre-order on 5 October across Europe.

In addition to the 7.1, HMD is also releasing two new Nokia accessories: True Wireless earbuds and the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones. As you might be to guess from its name, the new Nokia 7.1 was built upon the foundation left by its predecessor, the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 7. The phone comes in 3GB/4GB and 32GB/64GB storage options along with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.

While the phone will not ship with Android 9 Pie, HMD does talk about it in the press release and all of the features it will bring.

The global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB and €349 for the 4GB/64GB. The Nokia 7.1 has a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display with PureDisplay technology, meaning it's compatible with HDR10. The Nokia 7.1 will also upscale SDR content to HDR in real time, which should enhance color, increase brightness and expand the dynamic range of any video content that graces the display.

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.

In terms of optics, the Nokia 7.1 bears a vertically aligned pair of dual rear camera setup that consists of a 12-megapixel primary sensor, with autofocus and f/1.8 aperture, and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with fixed focus and f/2.4 aperture. Interestingly, the Nokia 7.1 is recommended for enterprise use as well. And then there's Android One, which will ensure that you're up-to-date with OS upgrades for two years and security updates for three. It offers up to 10 hours of playback time on a single charge, features vibration alerts, and connects via Bluetooth 4.2.

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that the Nokia 7.1 is more or less similar to the Nokia 6.1 Plus, barring a few changes here and there. The Bothies functionality that simultaneously captures content from both the front and rear-facing cameras and was part of the last several Nokia Android handsets is supported by the newly launched smartphone as well. For now, the phone's availability and price in Malaysia are not yet known though.
