  • Bothies are still a gimmick.

Nokia 7.1 at a glance

When does the Nokia 7.1 come out? Available from 17 October 2018.
What’s new about the Nokia 7.1? HDR compatible display, Snapdragon 636 processor, bothie shooting.
How much does the Nokia 7.1 cost? $499 outright.

Nokia's latest Android handset is a mid-range, mid-sized smartphone that looks to have plenty of power.

Strictly speaking, "Nokia" doesn't make phones any more. Nokia sold its mobiles business to Microsoft back in 2013, making it an exclusively Windows-phone-only maker, but some years down the track, HMD Global – largely made up of ex-Nokia employees – licensed the brand to produce Android phones. Its latest handset is the mid-range Nokia 7.1.

Design

  • 5.84 inch "PureDisplay" screen.
  • 19:9 aspect ratio.

Camera

  • Dual rear cameras.
  • Nokia is still trying to make bothies happen.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 636 is a good match for a mid-range phone.
  • Android One means guaranteed updates and a clean Google experience.

Battery life

  • 3060 mAh battery

Early Verdict

  • Nokia's value brand strategy looks like it will continue with the Nokia 7.1.
