Nokia 7.1: Where to buy, when, and for how much

Nokia 7.1 Gloss Steel dual cameras

It shipped a (mostly) pristine version of Android and committed to fast, regular updates that they have more or less delivered on.

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

The phone is based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636 platform compared to the Snapdragon 660 inside the 7 Plus. Nokia will be selling 32GB and 64GB storage models, both of which can be expanded via microSD. This is a very nice-looking device with some decent specs as well. The USP of the device is its 5.84-inch screen with a Full HD+ (1080X2280 pixels) resolution and a notch on top. A layer of Corning Gorilla Glass protects the display. However, that is not the notable feature of the smartphone, because the Nokia 7.1 offers real-time SDR to HDR conversion for all user content.

"Almost two thirds of videos around the world are viewed on mobile, which is why we've introduced our PureDisplay screen technology, to give everyone a premium viewing experience on a smartphone", HMD Global chief producer officer Juho Sarvikas said about the new handset.

On the back of the Nokia 7.1 is a dual-camera system that combines a 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensor. It also has an improved Bothie mode which allows you to shoot videos and photos simultaneously between the front and rear facing cameras.

Having already launched a plethora of smartphones this year, HMD Global is now adding another member to its burgeoning line-up.

It's an impressive list of features, especially given the Nokia 7.1's £299 asking price.

It's a fine-looking handset as you can see - so what did we make of our time with the phone at the handset's London launch?

Connectivity options on the Nokia 7.1 include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The True Wireless Earbuds have a 3.5-hour battery life, while the cylindrical charging case holds enough charge to give up to 16 hours of battery life, according to HMD. If you're in a hurry, the 18W charger included in the box promises to top-up 50% of your battery in half an hour or so. So the Nokia 7.1 does seem like it could impress the crowd with some of the features that they don't get to experience in a mid-range handset often.

For a sub-£300 phone, the Nokia 7.1 has the specs you might expect.

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

The Nokia 7.1 will be available from JB Hi-Fi (including SIM-only plans) and Harvey Norman from October 17 with an RRP of $499. The device will feature a $349 price tag and will be released alongside a Clear Case and Flip Cover which will be sold separately, priced at $10 and $20, respectively.
