The new 7 Plus is Nokia's best midranger yet


Just as speculated, Nokia took to the stage at the MWC 2018 expo today, and just announced what can be considered its best midrange phone yet, the 7 Plus, with pure Android Oreo One on board for faster software updates. In line with the trend, it sports a 6" panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio, which results from the 1080 x 2160 (FHD+) resolution.

Specs

Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform, carrying an octa-core CPU running at a clock speed of 2.2GHz; the Adreno 512 GPU is also on board. With 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, the phone offers more than many midrangers do. There is a huge 3800 mAh battery on board, which, combined with the midrange chipset and screen resolution, could easily hit two-day life with normal usage. 

The high-contrast LCD screen carries a polarizer layer for an outstanding viewing experience even in bright sunlight. In addition, the Nokia 7 Plus sports a modern Type-C USB port for fast charging the huge 3800 mAh battery, and does have a standard 3.5mm earphone jack.

Zeiss Camera


A dual camera setup using Zeiss optics is on the back (12MP + 13MP with 2x optical zoom), while a front-facing 16 MP camera, again with the Zeiss branding, handles selfies and video chats, and combines four pixels into one for better quality. 

The phone sports a Pro Camera mode, too, which lets you take pictures by giving you easy manual control over advanced camera settings like white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed and exposure. The handset captures stereo audio while filing with three noise-canceling mics, in line with the best of Nokia's traditions in audio recording.


Price and release date


The Nokia 7 Plus will be available in Black / Copper and White / Copper from early April, and will retail for a global average MSRP of €399.  All in all, it sounds like a true winner at the pricing that Nokia asks for it, but we will have a hands-on preview with the phone for you soon, and will give you direct impressions, so stay tuned at PhoneArena for more juicy Nokia tidbits.

best part is sensor is very large at 1.4um and also bright at f 1.75 .. same as Nokia 8 sirocco in addition front camera uses some pureview like tech which combines 4 pixels into 1 this looks like it will live up to the Nokia's camera quality.. this appears to be perfect upper midranger

1. Pricing for all models Nokia 6 and above is a total disaster for Asian markets, especially when Nokia wants to take Samsung and other Chinese brands heads-on. Nokia 6 especially would lose out on several customers given the sudden bump in pricing compared to existing Nokia 6. 2. A miss to 18:9 aspect ratio in mid-range is disappointing. 3. No OLED screen for Nokia 7+??? (Especially when Nokia says it understands that most people spend more than 5 hours on their mobile screens which adds so much strain on the eyes on a LCD display) 4. Nokia 8110 is technically cool but in no ways as futuristic in looks as the then-original handset. Just looks like an existing Nokia feature phone bent by heating the body lol. Jokes apart, the looks are really boring. In no way space-age like the original Nokias used to be. The event was cool for a Nokia comeback but this is no 1995, so given the Chinese advent of cheap but sophisticated phones, the event was a practical disappointment. Period.

There's two different designs on the back from those photos. One/some of them are not accurate.

If I can get this in Canada (even if it's from Amazon US) at $400 USD, it's pretty much an instant buy for me.

Loving this even more than the Nokia 6 2018! Nokia has some hits with the mid-range Phone! This is the best mid-range phone of 2018 so far.

Now I think that I've found the ideal phone. No more wasting money on brand names and useless gimmicks. Beautiful design and enough screen real estate and a good enough processor. Thanks Nokia. 7Plus it is!!!
