Nokia 7 Plus comes with free Google Home Mini in tow in some markets

Nokia 7 Plus comes with free Google Home Mini in tow in some markets
HMD is expected to introduce its new wave of smartphones revealed last month at Mobile World Congress 2018 this spring. Among them, the Nokia 7 Plus is one of the phones that we can't wait get our hands on (actually, we already did).

If you're waiting for the Nokia 7 Plus too, you'll be pleased to know that HMD plans to offer it along with some freebies in some key markets. Just like it did with the Nokia 6 in many European countries, HMD, or rather specific retailers across the continent, will sell the Nokia 7 Plus bundled with a free Google Home Mini.

Apparently, such a deal will be available in the UK when the Nokia 7 Plus hits the store shelves in early May. The offer will be available for the first month after the phone's launch, but we have yet to learn where else you'll be able to get it.



HMD did not yet confirm whether or not the Nokia 7 Plus will be launched in the United States, but rumor has it the smartphone will eventually make it to Amazon and other local retailers in Q2.

Looking forward to seeing full reviews on this device.

Just wait until the Note 9 comes out. The Note 8 will still be better than this Nokia and will cost about the same price (will be used of course, but who knows what new pricing will be later this year)

Why are you comparing a midrange smartphone to a flagship with al the bells and whistles?

Because of the price.

They’re not the same price, though. Note 8 is, and will probably remain, the more expensive device. The Note 9 goes without saying. So you can’t compare based on price.

I'm sorry, I have no interest in a used device that's seen who knows what kind of abuse, battery degradation, no return policy, no warranty, etc. To top it off, we don't even know what the final price will be for this Nokia 7 plus, or even if it will come to North America where I am.

That's slightly exaggerated Subie. I've bought used phones before that were in great condition. It depends on who you buy it from and where. I understand that you were trying to keep it positive about the new Nokia phone. Just thought I'd clarify that point.

I agree there's a lot of good quality used tech to be found. But surface looks can also be deceiving. I'm not saying all used equipment is abused. I'm saying "who knows?" My money, my preference, and unless prior treatment can be guaranteed - then I haven't exaggerated a thing.

I understand. I mean no disrespect. I just wanted to let you know that you don't have to be afraid of used phones. The price of phones have become astronomical in recent years although I lucked out and got my phone brand new due to OEM warranty.

I totally agree with you about prices. That's capitalism for you. That said, Samsung is selling the new Galaxy S9 this year starting at $70 less than the S8 was priced last year. Through their Canadian online store anyway.

Totally agree with you, Subie. Not everyone/every company has used phones that are in good condition. And it’s your cash, so you should definitely spend it on what you want. That said, Nokia has been putting out some real quality handsets. The Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 2016 both have my interest.

Double post... again?

I didn't double post.

No, I'm the one with the double posts. Don't know why. Here's hoping this one is a single...

I don't think the new Nokia phones will be as good as even Samsung. They are cranking out a lot of phones, which begs the question on quality.

The Nokia 7 Plus is sure to be one of the top mid rangers of the year, possibly in the top 5. HMD/Nokia has really been impressing me with their Android offerings. HMD/Nokia (and possibly Huawei) are currently the only Android vendors that can sway me back to Android from iOS (got an 8 Plus not too long ago and I’m loving it). Can’t wait to see/read more about this smartphone.

I’ve used both iOS and Android extensively, so I’ll be the judge of that, especially since it will be my money being spent on the devices. Period.
