So, as many of you may know, HMD Global avoided the Nokia 7.1 Plus at last week’s event. However, that doesn’t mean the smartphone isn’t on its way. In fact, a bunch of variants has just been certified ahead of the device’s release in the near future.

The versions go by the model numbers TA-1104, TA-1113, TA-1115, TA-1117, TA-1118, and TA-1125, and will all support Bluetooth 4.2 and 4G LTE networks. As is the case with Bluetooth certifications, however, no other information about the smartphones are provided. Fortunately, a number of leaks have already revealed almost everything there is to know about these devices.

Starting with the exterior, the smartphone will follow in the footsteps of the regular Nokia 7.1 by adopting a notched display complete with a rather thick chin down below. However, the diagonal is set to increase to 6.18-inches. Internally, the Snapdragon 710 has been rumored for quite some time now and is expected to join either 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Alongside all of this, a 3,400mAh battery is to be expected alongside the outdated Android 8.1 Oreo in its stock form.

The exact announcement date of this phone still remains unclear. However, HMD Global has stated that it has an “important announcement” to make on October 11 in India. Additionally, Nokia’s Indian social media has been teasing the arrival of a device with a “mega display,” so perhaps the Nokia 7.1 Plus will go official as early as this Thursday.

Different variants for different parts of the world. Many OEM’s do this. Excited about the launch of the Nokia 7 Plus successor, but I’m not a fan of the smallish battery. HMD went the Google route with the small battery and larger screen.

Great software update history, good price, great build quality, even if we forget that mega chin, everything got ruined by tiny battery.. Why Nokia, why?

I agree. Some of their choices are questionable.

The battery is too small even for my tastes, but if the 710 has great power management, then it will be ok. HMD has been known for having great software in their Nokia branded smartphones, even better than what’s on the Pixels.

We don't know the price yet, one can't comment on how high is. HMD is also amazing with updates, so Android Pie isn't far behind for this smartphone.

I will like to buy it after reading full review i.e. its other specifications. But this review is helpful. I own Moto but will never buy next version. it's now part of Chinese co and again it has lost charm and quality in particular.

Yup. Motorola has been gutted and tossed to the side. Right now the Essential phone is still the best stock Android non Google phone right now that's available in the US.

Your best choice for stock Android is definitely HMD with its Nokia branded smartphones. Stock Android phones like the Pixel line and Essential have too many bugs and issues.
