Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

Nokia 7.1, True Wireless Earbuds, Pro Wireless Earphones Launched: Watch Live Streaming, Updates

Nokia 7.1 will be available in two colours: gloss midnight blue, and gloss steel.

There are also some nice surprises down in the guts of the device.

The inclusion of a display notch will likely be as polarizing Android consumers as other cutout-equipped devices proved to be, though the mass market already clearly signaled it doesn't consider notches to be a deal-breaker, as evidenced by the excellent commercial performance of recent flagships from Apple and Huawei. The base model features 32GB of internal storage, while the 4GB RAM variant features memory that has been bumped up to 64GB. 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. 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. The Nokia 7.1 has a dual camera setup on the back that's stacked vertically in the top-center position. On the front, there's an 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera.

The camera comes with features like True Life HDR, Bokeh mode, Pro Camera mode, Livestream functionality, and Bothie. Artificial intelligence advancements allowed HMD to deliver 3D masks and face filters to the front-facing camera of the Nokia 7.1, with the manufacturer referring to those overlays as "personas". There was no global model of the Nokia 7 but then HMD has made a decision to launch the Nokia 7.1 globally. It slots underneath the Nokia 7 Plus, with a screen that's 0.6-inches smaller and some more modest specs. On a single charge, the True Wireless Earbuds offer up to 3.5 hours of audio playback or 4 hours of talk time, but the charging case can give them another 3 full charges, essentially bringing it up to 14 hours of music or 16 hours of talk time. 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. HMD Global, however, says the phone will get Android 9.0 Pie as soon as next month.

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

The Nokia 7.1 will go on pre-order on 5 October across Europe. The Nokia 6.1 Plus, priced in India at Rs. 15,999, will be available at 12pm IST via Flipkart - and though it is also available to buy via the Nokia e-store, the site doesn't give the users the option to login to make the purchase. 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.
