The new Android-powered Nokia smartphone lineup has finally gotten some order with the launch of the Nokia 7, coming in between the budget Nokia 6 and high-end Nokia 8 priced at about $400. The phone packs a 5.2-inch display screen with a 1080p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and a decent 3000mAh battery unit.
The Nokia 7 has two memory options. Where the base model comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, the high-end variant has a massive 6GB RAM alongside 128GB storage. Still, both units come with a slot for microSD card storage, which makes the phone even better.
One of the major highlights of the Nokia 8 is the Carl ZEISS-powered cameras on the front and back. The camera app comes with a feature the company calls “bothie”, where users can capture photos using the front and rear sensors at the same time, which will then be combined into a single image. Of course, this looks gimmicky, but it should serve to add some fun to social media fans, especially those on Snapchat and Instagram. Well, the Nokia 7 is the second Nokia phone to come with the ability to capture bothies.
On the back of the phone is a 16MP lens that boasts a large f/1.8 aperture while the front gets a 5MP unit with a slightly smaller aperture of f/2.0. In terms of pricing, the Nokia 7, as you’d expect, slips in between the Nokia 8 and Nokia 6, where the base model is priced at CNY 2499 and the high-end variant will sell for CNY 2699. These are equivalent to about $377 and $407, respectively.
Note that the release of the Nokia 7 has only been confirmed for the Chinese market, but just like the other Nokia phones from the recent past, we expect to see a global rollout happening sooner or later. As for the U.S. market, we still don’t know the stand of HMD Global on this one, especially after the company said that the Nokia 8 won’t be coming stateside.
