Adjust Comment Print

On Thursday, HMD Global announced a brand new Nokia phone in London.

The only Nokia smartphone to get the stable Android Pie so far is Nokia 7 Plus which was one of the eligible devices for Android Pie Beta. Also, like it or not, there's a notch display.

Why it matters: Quality mid-range devices offering a solid user experience are more plentiful than ever.

The first thing you'll notice is how compact the Nokia 7.1 feels.

As expected, HMD Global, the brand that holds the license to make and sell Nokia smartphones, has unveiled its latest handset. At the bottom there's a USB Type-C port for recharging the 3,060 mAh battery, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Best of all, the Nokia 7.1 runs Android One. Both the options will support storage expandability up to 400GB via microSD card.

Among the features, the 12 MP/5MP dual cameras promise fast and accurate autofocus and HDR photography even in low light, as well as studio-style "bokeh" shots, picture-in-picture capabilities and a mode that lets you use the front and back cameras simultaneously. 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". The Nokia 7.1 has a dual camera setup on the back that's stacked vertically in the top-center position. Between maximum talk time of 19.5 hours and maximum video playback time of only eight hours, the battery of this Android handset doesn't appear to be anything to write home about given its sizeable screen, though the device should still be able to last through an entire day on a single charge due to its energy-efficient processor.

Nokia's return to the smartphone market by way of HMD has already made an impact thanks to affordable hardware and clean Android One software. During the event, Nokia confirmed the first wave of Android Pie updates should hit its phones this month.
