The company has finally unveiled the long-awaited Nokia 7, adding a new member in Nokia family, exclusively to mainland China.
Now, let’s talk about the phone itself, if you look at the design, it has the 5.2-inch LCD display with 1920X1080 pixel resolution, and traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back, between the camera and Nokia logo.
If we sneak inside the phone, we will see a Snapdragon 630 chipset, coupled with either 4GB or 6GB RAM. To store your media files, it comes with standard 64GB internal storage, which is expandable via microSD card. The regular version with 4 GB of RAM will cost ¥2,499 (around Rs.40, 000) and the more premium version with 6 GB of RAM will cost ¥200 more (around Rs.43, 000).
In the optics department, it has a 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie-shooter at the front and a 16-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture and a dual-tone flash. Similar to Nokia 8, the Nokia 7 will feature “Dual-sight technology”, basically it means, the Nokia 7 can take pictures and videos using front and back camera simultaneously, capturing “both side stories”, or you can call it “Bothies”, as the Nokia like to call them. However, this feature is not new, Samsung already tried it with Galaxy S4 in 2013, which did get much popularity. But Nokia thinks, it still has some potential.
To back up the internals, it has a 3000mAh non-removable battery, and runs on Android Nougat out of the box, (hopefully it will release the Android 8 soon). The phone comes with a headphone jack, so no dongle nonsense. The Nokia 7 will be available in Gloss Black and Matt White.
The Nokia 7 will be available starting from October 24, in China and will remain exclusive to the Chinese market, well that’s a little bit disappointing.
