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

Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

Android One is clearly the biggest differentiator for the Nokia 7.1 when compared with similarly priced handsets from the likes of Huawei and Samsung. The camera bump from Nokia's previous devices is still present but is also barely noticeable, protruding only by 1.152mm.

Inside the Nokia 7.1 is a Snapdragon 636 processor, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of built-in storage, and a dual SIM slot that also lets you use one SIM and one microSD card slot.

HMD Global says global average prices for the Nokia 7.1 will be €319 ($367, £282) for the 3GB RAM with 32GB model while the 4GB RAM with 64GB model will cost €349 ($402, £308). The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and according to HMD Global, the LCD panel can get noticeably bright. In the US, the Nokia 7.1 will cost $349 and will be available from Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H.

Now, it does have a notch, but I can forgive that because it also contains a headphone jack.

HMD Global announced the Nokia 7.1 earlier today. In the US, you'll get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage while some markets will get a cheaper model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The Nokia 7.1 looks like a solid addition to HMD's lineup of Nokia smartphones. On the front, the device sports 5.84-inch PureDisplay with FullHD+ (2244 x 1080 pixels) resolution and HDR 10 playback. The front has an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 AI-enhanced face unlock feature. 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.

A 3,060mAh battery with fast charging capability powers the Nokia 7.1 Connectivity options on the smartphone include dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, and Global Positioning System with GLONASS. I have had a chance to try out the new Nokia 7.1 ahead of the launch, and here's what I think about the smartphone. "The ".1" denotes that the phone runs Android One, Google's close-to stock software that gives monthly security patches. It's comprised of a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) sensor, and a 5-megapixel (f/2.4) sensor, complete with ZEISS optics and dual-LED flash.

Like the rest of Nokia's fleet of smartphones, the 7.1's chassis is crafted from a single block of aluminium. The True Wireless earbuds offer 3.5 hours of play time, are waterproof, and can get three charges from the wireless charging case.

Looking at everything it offers, the Nokia 7.1 offers a compelling mid-range experience at an attractive price point. The fame is a little more polished and refined on the Nokia 7.1.

Available in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel color options, the Nokia 7.1 will begin rolling out in select markets in October. For now, the phone's availability and price in Malaysia are not yet known though.
