With Nokia's signature build quality and good looks, the 7.1 offers features like HDR10 conversion for all videos, improved cameras, and the usual Nokia promise of "pure, secure, and up to date" with Android One software.
Under the bonnet is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, coupled with 3GB of RAM. It has a super bright 5.84-inch HDR10-ready display with a notch, a glass and metal design, Zeiss-branded dual cameras, and runs on Android One, a clean and bloat-free version of Android that is first in line when it comes to the latest software updates. Since its an Android One device, the Nokia 7.1 will get three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates.
The Nokia 7.1 features a 3060mAh battery that can be charged via Type-C USB port and fortunately, the smartphone supports fast-charging that takes the battery life from 0-50 percent in 30 minutes.
The Nokia 7.1 announcement has been updated with USA and Australian pricing and release date information.
Despite all this Google-goodness, the newest Nokia smartphone doesn't ship with Android 9.0 Pie, which launched in early August, out of the box. Now the naming may confuse some people into believing this is a Nokia 7 Plus successor, but it's not.More news: Rupee breaches 74-mark against dollar as RBI keeps policy rate unchanged
