Nokia 7.1 Plus complete with display notch and two rear cameras leaks out

Nokia 7.1 Plus complete with display notch and two rear cameras leaks out
This year, HMD Global appears to have become a fan of “Plus” models following the launch of the Nokia 5.1 Plus, 6.1 Plus, and 7 Plus earlier this year. Looking at the branding of this last one, it’s a whole generation behind when looking at it through the eyes of regular consumers. This is why it’s not exactly surprising to hear that a successor is already in the works.

Recently, there have been a number of leaks which have pointed towards a Nokia X7 without a notch (that’s the name the Nokia 7.1 Plus will presumably use in some Asian markets). Today, though, new renders of the smartphone courtesy of MySmartPrice confirm that this will not be the case. Instead, the upcoming device will follow in the footsteps of the 5.1 Plus and 6.1 Plus by introducing a notch above the display. While on the topic of the notch, this will be home to a front-facing camera and an in-ear speaker. Unsurprisingly, it will also be coupled with a large chin towards the bottom of the display. Although the side bezels are relatively slim. Taking a peek at the rear, a glass build is predictably included, as is a vertical dual-camera setup in the center. Unlike some of HMD Global’s cheaper smartphones, though, the Nokia 7.1 Plus gains access to ZEISS-branded sensors. Below the camera module is also a circular fingerprint reader.

At first glance, the Nokia 7.1 Plus does look suspiciously like the 6.1 Plus that launched months ago. Thankfully, though, there are a few differentiating details such as the ZEISS branding. Moreover, the rear fingerprint scanner has lost its shiny ring. Lastly, the volume rocker and power button now match the height of the rear camera module much more closely.
 
Presently, HMD Global’s release plans for the Nokia 7.1 Plus are unclear. But with Samsung preparing quite a few mid-rangers, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Nokia brand fight back with its own release within the next couple of months.

Ugly like Xs, Xs max and Xr.

Display notch is a bad Idea, It makes Nokia to look like other smartphone manufacturer. Without Notch is separated from the mass and this gives to the company, more customers with out competition.

Looks beautiful, notch or no notch, tbh. Pretty sure the Nokia 7.1 Plus will be one of the best midrange releases in its class, if not the best, much like the Nokia 7 Plus.

That chin is just too big. Side bezels are smaller than most phones including the iPhone X series.

if they could cut that bottom chin in half, I'd get one of these in a heartbeat. Still might but I need to see the remaining specs.

Yeah that chin is awful. I'm not sure what's up with Nokia and their questionable design choices lately.

Irregardless of the chin, it's a better design than some high end smartphones like the Pixel 3XL.

There is no Nokia smartphone with 9 camera's on the back.

There is no smartphone today that is as ugly as the Pixel 3XL.

I don't think it's that ugly. At least it's a cosmetic thing and not something being inaccurately reported on the benchmarks.

Not only does it look better than the Pixel 3XL, but it will undoubtedly have less bugs than the Pixel line as well.
