Nokia 7.1 pricing, storage configurations, and colors revealed ahead of unveiling

Nokia 7.1 pricing, storage configurations, and colors revealed ahead of unveiling
Nokia 7 Plus

The notchless Nokia 7.1 is just around the corner and, following a number of leaks which were initially mistaken for the larger Nokia 7.1 Plus, today some concrete information about the device has been revealed by tipster Roland Quandt. 

In general, the Nokia 7.1 is expected to act as a spiritual successor to the current-generation Nokia 7 Plus. This is reflected perfectly in the smartphone’s pricing, which has now been revealed as €399 in Europe. When it comes to internals, initial rumors pointed towards the Snapdragon 710. But after considering the pricing, the Snapdragon 670 seems like a more plausible option – the Nokia 7 Plus ships with the older Snapdragon 660. This processor will then be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, thus matching the configuration present inside the Nokia 7 Plus. Elsewhere, while the battery size is unclear, stock Android 9 Pie should be present straight out of the box thanks to the Android One Program.

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, the Nokia 7.1 will boast a more traditional 18:9 display up front complete with average bezels both below and above the panel. In addition to this, the rear aluminum casing has been replaced with a new glass construction. This is then adorned by an updated vertical camera setup that will once again boast ZEISS branding.

The Nokia 7.1 is expected to go official next week on October 4. Shortly after this, the smartphone will presumably be made available to pre-order. Those interested will be able to purchase it in either Blue or Steel

Here for it! HMD is continuing it's trend (and wisely so) of putting out Nokia branded smartphones that give you great bang for your buck. Eager to read more about this, and the Nokia 7.1 Plus.

Why glass back?? It won't have wireless charging so why make the phone more fragile in exchange for no benefit??? I hate this.

How do you it won't have wireless charging?

The Oneplus 6 and Honor 10 don't have it, so why would the 7.1 have it?? Very unlikely. If it does, then that's a good justification for the glass back. Otherwise HMD would just be following the pack for no reason except to make us buy cases.

This isn't made by OnePlus or Honor, so it doesn't make sense to judge what it will have and won't have based on them. For the record, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which is made by HMD, the maker of this smartphone, has a glass back and wireless charging. So there may indeed be a reason as to why this has a glass back, as opposed to assuming that they are just "following the pack for no reason except to make us buy cases."

Dude, the Nokia 8 Sirocco also cost much more than Oneplus 6 when it launched. And it saved some money by using older sd 835. That's why it has wireless charging. And it TOTALLY makes sense to judge the 7.1 based on Oneplus 6 and Honor 10 because those two phones cost atleast a 100 dollars more than 7.1. And judging by this pricing, it's safe to assume that the cheaper 7.1 won't have wireless charging either. How come did you not think about this?? And I am just assuming based on pricing. If it has wireless charging, very well then.

Dude, my point is still proven about it being a device made by HMD with a glass back that has wireless charging. It only makes complete sense that they would do the same with the Nokia 7.1 since it has a glass back. Making an assumption about what one company will do based on what others have done when there is factual evidence that shows that HMD adds wireless charging to its smartphones with glass backs is ridiculous. How come you didn't think of this?? Or is it that you didn't do your research and just wanted to have something to complain about?? Price doesn't matter, as I'm fairly certain that there are smartphones at that price point with glass backs and wireless charging. Instead of being so defensive, how about you go with solution that makes the most sense based on what HMD has done in the past with their one smartphone that has a glass back. But then again, common sense isn't so common around here, as you have proven.

You are fairly certain?? How about you prove to me that even a single device exists that has a glass back and wireless charging, similar specs to the 7.1, same or lower price, and is released in 2018. If you can prove ALL that to me, instead of being "fairly certain" that such a device exists, then I will assume the 7.1 would also ave wireless charging. And no, there is absolutely no comparison b/w a $600+ Nokia 8 sirocco and a $400 7.1....as far as wireless charging is concerned. You might not realise but you are acting like a fanboy now! Apparently even liking your own comments!!

LMAO! How about you stop being such a lazy@$$ and do the actual research for yourself?? I don’t care what you “assume”, “believe”, or “feel” concerning this topic. YOU aren’t anyone for me to prove anything to. You’re just some randome Apple fanboy on the internet compalinig about anything that doesn’t have an Apple logo on the back, lol. And WHO is COMPARING the two? I simply said that the ONE phone that HMD has made with a glass back has wireless charging, so it stands to reason that THIS phone will have it as well, considering the first one did and it’s made by the same OEM. It’s called an EDUCATED guess based on the information that exists concerning what HMD has already put out with a similar design (concerning the glass back). I’m not ASSUMING like you are just so I can whine and complain on the internet. You might not realize it, or choose to be in denial about it, but you ARE a fanboy, hating on something that hasn’t even been released yet because it doesn’t have an Apple logo on it. I’ve seen you do it in the past, and you’re doing it now. And what, you’re so jealous and envious that some random person liked my comments an no one liked yours that you’re saying that I’m “liking my own comments”? LMAO!! You sound ridiculous. But do continue. I always get a laugh out of your ridiculiseness.

Thnx man. You just proved you are only fairly certain and don't have any actual proof :) And also thanks for proving me right about you. And I am an Apple fanboy coz of my profile pic of an Apple logo? HAH wow! Keep smiling to yourself if you think that. No wonder nobody else likes your comments. Goes to show how much of a fanboy you are. And also......remember you were unable to prove that a smartphone like 7.1 exists with wireless charging and was released in 2018. Let's wait a few days and see if the 7.1 does actually have it. I might buy it if it has wireless charging. But obviously you don't have to believe me....

LMAO! Thank you for continuing on with your ridiculousness. I do so love a good laugh to start off the day, especially since you haven’t proven that it won’t have wireless charging. You have no actual proof, only assumptions ;) And thank you for continuing to prove me right about you. Lol, you’re an Apple fanboy because you are an Apple fanboy, the profile pic is just the icing on the cake. But do keep deluding yourself into believing otherwise while lmmfao @ you. And newsflash for the delusional such as yourself: NO ONE has liked your comments at all. Just goes to show you how much of a fanboy you really are ;) And remember: Not only do I not care about what some random, ridiculous person on the internet like you will buy and won’t buy, but you also have been unable to prove that the Nokia 7.1 won’t have wireless charging. But don’t let that little fact ruin your delusions and ridiculousness. Do continue continue to carry in with both ;)

You definitely win this fight. The nokia 7.1 will have wireless charging and I am surely an apple fanboy. Sorry for arguing with you.

Yes, your guilty conscience did strike again. Thanks for admitting it.

Hardly sounds like much of an upgrade. Not a fan of losing the high quality aluminum back casing. ;(

I'm getting confused. I thought the 7.1 was the successor to the 7. See Nokia, this is why you shouldn't follow LG and name your devices all over the place. Just keep it simple and easy.

Nothing confusing about their naming strategy at all. Maybe it's just lack of comprehension on your part.

Or maybe it's just a lack of clarity with a statement from someone who is known to be biased for anything that he is known to support.

Or, maybe it’s just an attack on an OEM feigned as confusion because you hate on them simply because I support them, like you’ve been known to do since your mxyzptlk account, and still so 10 accounts later. You literally have followed me from article to article for 10 accounts now, admittedly bashing them because I favor them. You already admitted to doing this with your now deactivated mxyxptlk account, and I have the link to prove it.
