This week the folks at Nokia revealed the Nokia 7 Plus, a “flagship hero for everyone.” This device has Android One, basically closest thing you’re going to get to a Nexus smartphone that exists in this crazy messed up world here in 2018. This device has a 6-inch IPS LCD display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. This display is covered with a pane of “sculpted” Corning Gorilla Glass that’s both laminated and polarized.
On the back of this smartphone is a 12-megapixel camera with 1.4 um pixels, f1.75, 2PD, and ZEISS optics with dual-tone flash. There’s a second camera at the back of this device as well: 13MP, 1.0um pixels, f2.6, and ZEISS action as well. Up front is a 16MP camera, 1.0um pixels, f2.0 lens, and ZEISS optics.
Inside this smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 mobile platform, processor and all. There’s 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB internal storage with a microSD card slot that’s able to carry up to 256GB additional space. Connectivity includes Wi-fi 802.11 a/b/g/b/ac, bluetooth 5.0, SPA/AGPS+ GLONASS+ BDS, NFC, USB-C, OTG, and it has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Inside this device is a 3800 mAh battery – non-removable, and it’s charged with USB-C. There’s fast-charging tech here and Nokia suggests the battery will last for 2-days straight. This device has a single speaker with smart amplifier, Nokia spacial audio capture, and three microphones.
This machine is big – it’s 158.38 x 75.64 x 7.99 mm (and 9.55mm with its camera bump.) Nokia 7 Plus comes with a charger, a charging/data cable, a quick guide, a headset, SIM door key, and a protective cover – right out the box. This device also has a fingerprint sensor.
The Nokia 7 Plus will be released in April of 2018 – well before we expected any new Nokia phones, to be entirely honest. This device will cost right around 399 Euro – that’s approximately $490 USD. Don’t expect this one to hit the US right away – but maybe in the future? Cross your fingers.
