For quite some time now, there have been contradicting rumors surrounding the upcoming Nokia 7.1 Plus – some leaks claimed that the smartphone would include a notch, and others claimed that it wouldn’t. But thanks to new information obtained by NokiaPowerUser, these contradictions appear to have finally been cleared up.
As indicated by the most recent leaks, it looks as though the Nokia 7.1 Plus will indeed follow in the footsteps of other Plus models by launching with a notched display. However, fans of the more traditional 18:9 aspect ratio will also be in luck thanks to a separate device, the Nokia 7.1. According to the information, this model will act as a spiritual successor to the Nokia 7 Plus that debuted earlier this year. This would suggest that a 6-inch display will be making a return alongside a few design changes. But when it comes to the internal side of things, some major upgrades are being planned in the form of the Snapdragon 710 which will replace the Snapdragon 660. Alongside this, 4GB of RAM will presumably be included, as will 64GB of internal storage. Also, a rather large battery should be expected alongside Android 9 Pie straight out of the box.
Much like the regular Nokia 7.1, the 7.1 Plus is also set to ship with the Snapdragon 710 on the inside. However, this device will presumably boast more RAM and more internal storage. Additionally, a slightly larger display and battery are to be expected too.
HMD Global is holding an event on October 4 at a yet-to-be-revealed location. Here, it’s unconfirmed what the company will unveil, but the Nokia 7.1 and 7.1 Plus are certainly candidates for the event.
