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.

Hope it comes with Android Pie preinstalled. This will prove Nokia's bragging about their devices coming with latest OS.

Nice. The 7 Plus is a good midranger. Step up the camera quality a bit more and it'll be great.

Add Pie,ois in camera,SD710 or SD670(though it lack 10 bit HDR display and lower clockspeed frequency) and waterproof with low average price so that it can sell well.

Eager for this. The Nokia 7 Plus is an awesome midranger, so I expect good things from the 7.1 and 7.1 Plus.

If it's not going to come to the US, like most of Nokia's other offerings, I don't think it's going to matter much on what it has. Sucks because I really wanted the copper black 7 Plus with 64GB of storage and the 4gb of RAM.

This smartphone will matter whether it comes to the U.S. or not. There is a clear demand for Nokia smartphones, especially outside of the U.S., and their growing sales and market share prove that. To say this won’t matter much if it doesn’t come to the U.S. just shows a lack of knowledge when it comes to the demand of Nokia smartphones.
