Announced – The Nokia 7.1

Today in London HMD have announced the latest device under the Nokia brand, this time called the 7.1.

I’ve already been impressed with their recent Nokia 7 Plus during my recent review, but this updated version brings better performance, enhanced cameras and a new screen technology. It’s hoped that this will combine to improve the overall experience and deliver a premium design.

With a 5.8 inch FullHD+ display including HDR and the new PureDisplay technology, the Nokia 7.1 really does impress when it comes to the screen especially in daylight – one area that can be tricky for a lot of phones.

Over on the back is a dual camera setup as expected, this one packs a 12MP main sensor with a 5MP secondary which allows for super clear bokeh photos that many of us like taking these days.

Running everything is the Android One OS, so you get a Pixel-like experience with super fast upgrades. It has a Snapdragon 636 processor, which helps with power management, and a series 6000 aluminium body.

Memory-wise you get two options – a 3GB with 32GB storage and a larger 4GB with 64GB. Both are available in Gloss Steel and Gloss Midnight Blue and pre-orders start tomorrow for £299. Sales start on October 17th.

We hope to have hands on a device soon for a full review. Until then here is more info in the press release below.

UPDATE: During posting we had word that Vodafone will be ranging the Nokia 7.1, with availability to be confirmed shortly.
