Nokia 7.1 Plus teasers confirm leaked design ahead of unveiling tomorrow
As revealed earlier today, the smartphone will make use of a tall 6.18-inch display complete with a rather large notch up top. But unlike the ones featured on Apple’s iPhone XS line or the upcoming Mate 20 Pro, not Face ID-like technology is fitted. Instead, the notch is simply home to an in-ear speaker, the proximity sensor, and a 20-megapixel selfie camera. In regards to the rear, the smartphone doesn’t really bring anything new to the table – it resembles most recent Nokia devices. This means that a small vertical camera module is included towards the top of the glass panel, while just below is a circular fingerprint scanner.
Other design elements that aren’t visible in these teaser images include a USB Type-C port and a speaker on the bottom of the device, and a 3.5mm headphone jack up top. Internally, consumers should expect Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710, 6GB of RAM, a very respectable 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,500mAh battery. Unfortunately, Android 8.1 Oreo will come pre-installed rather than the newer Android 9 Pie.
As has been the case with the Nokia 5.1 Plus and the Nokia 6.1 Plus, the 7.1 Plus will first make its debut in China under the Nokia X7 name. This means that the offering will likely remain exclusive to the market for at least two to three months before launching elsewhere.
