Nokia 7 is now official, making it the fifth Android phone in the company’s smartphone lineup. Unlike previous models, the Nokia 7 has got a glass back; the first of its kind from the company. Built around 7000 series aluminum, the phone’s frame is as sturdier as it gets; though, the phone lacks a fancier bezel-less display(not a big deal, at least for me).
Underneath, the phone sees Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 chipset, accompanied by either 4GB or 6GB of RAM; nonetheless, both variants come with 64GB of onboard storage with expandability. The not so cool display comes at a size of 5.2-inch Full-HD IPS display with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3. And mind you, the phone is IP54 certified, making it at least splash proof.
Although the phone doesn’t ride the dual-camera hype, it comes with a decent pair of cameras, both at the back and front. The 16MP camera shines at rear with f/1.8 aperture, 1.12um pixels, and a dual-tone LED flash. To help capture selfies, there’s a 5MP sensor at the front with f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree field of view. Likewise, the camera is also capable of capturing bothies; meaning, you can use the phone’s rear and front camera at the same time. Thankfully, the Nokia OZO is also present on the phone for an immersive audio experience.
The Nokia 7 will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, with a promised upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo, while powering the phone is a 3000mAh battery with fast charge support. The phone will go on sale in China from 24th of October for the price of CNY 2,499 for the 4GB variant, whereas the 6GB variant will enjoy the price tag of CNY 2,699.
