The Nokia 7+ will feature thin bezels

The Nokia 7+ will feature thin bezels

We've seen images of the Nokia 7+ before, but today we have a new live photograph that shows the upcoming device's lock screen and thin bezels. The Nokia 7+ is the first handset from Nokia licensee HMD Global to feature the so called "near bezel-less" display that is all the rage these days. Part of that look includes the use of an 18:9 aspect ratio, which results from the 1080 x 2160 (FHD+) resolution employed on the unit's 6-inch screen.

Speaking of the display, it also will be the first Nokia smartphone to feature a screen with rounded corners. 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. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of native storage. A dual camera setup using Zeiss optics is on back (12MP + 13MP), while a front-facing 16MP camera handles selfies and video chats.

With Android 8.0 pre-installed, the Nokia 7+ will also be the first Android One handset to carry the Nokia brand. The Nokia 7+ will feature a Type-C USB port and a 3.5mm earphone jack. The fingerprint scanner is located on back, below the two cameras.

We should hear about pricing and availability during MWC 2018, which starts on February 26th. While distribution of the Nokia 7 has been limited to Asia only, we expect a much wider release for the Nokia 7+. Will it be coming to your country? Stay tuned.

How many of these phones are they going to pop out? Talk about brand saturation.

When you take into account that HMD/Nokia selling more phone than many Android vendor today in Q4 of 2017 by itself, then you know they do not need to slow down or just make a few model. The sales say that they are doing the right thing and that they are making good phone. Men lie. Women lie. But numbers do not lie. The numbers speak the truth.

And if that is what they do and it work well for them, what is the problem? Is obvious that this method work well for them, so there is no problem. Some people like to make problem where there is none and complain about stuffs they do not even use for no good reason at all.

Main problem is can they support this many phones in long run with software updates and other thing. if yes it’s okay, if no then they need to think about it.

That's assuming lack of update support would dent their sales. But that mostly isn't the case in the Android ecosystem. Lack of update support general have little to no impact at all.

So far they have been supporting all phones they make with no issue. I do not see this stopping.

No one is making a problem. I think you are overreacting just a little bit. It was a simple point.

If you do actual research on HMD/Nokia sales, you would know you have no “point”. I think you feel guilty just a little bit by my comment because I speak the truth. This is proven by the fact that you respond to me even though I did not mention you or respond to your first comment.

I don't feel guilty at all. I say what I said to make a point. I have as much right to comment as you do.

Everybody have a right to comment here. That include responding to someone comment with fact. I do not overreact, I speak truth.

I don't think you know what the truth is to be honest. You just assume what you want as the truth, but it doesn't work that way.

What you just say is meant for you. You do not know the truth. You only know falsehood and conjecture. That is not the truth.

Nokia/HMD major target markets are very price conscious markets, so having many models help a lot at different price points where even 20$ can change the decision of buyer .. same reason why Samsung has so many low-mid end models from J1,J2,J3,J5,J7 and then On series.. and then Pro/Plus/Prime variants of these.. and Samsung have been successful and not to mention this has always been Nokia way of doing things from early symbian days to Lumia days.. I think samsung has too many models though.. But i think 7-8 models per year is fine.. Nokia 1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9 Speaking of this 7 Plus .. this is just the gloabal 2018 version of Nokia 7 2017 which was exclusive to china ... So there will be only 1 model of Nokia 7 in 2018

I agree MDCHO. As long as their current business model remains profitable they'll most definitely stay the course.

Very true. Current business model of HMD/Nokia is working well for them. There is no need to change it.

Is it sustainable though? That is the question.

HMD follow Nokia of old strategy. It work well for Nokia then. It will undoubtedly work well for HMD now and keep them making profit, especially in markets where they choose to release certain phone.

Let's not forget that this numbers are high, because of emotional demand - first Q4 Nokia phones are in the market again. Also even Apple is having problems to support 4 models per year - 2 phones and 2 iPads. How small and young HMD company will support 10 models per year??!? They do not have need resources of money and people.

Until you post proof showing otherwise, I will stand by what I say. The numbers support what I say.

Why don't you post proof then if you are so sure of yourself.

39. MDCHO

I can ask you the same question. Why don’t you post proof of you are so sure of yourself?

You made the flipping claim, remember? So burden of proof is on you. I understand that you are talking out of your rear end and all, but still.

You made the claim about over saturation and imply that HMD cannot maintain their success. So the burden of proof is on you to provide actual evidence to support your false claim. Only you talk from your rear here. Everybody know this. That is why you never provide link to back yourself up.

Well many of these aren't coming to the USA. So for me, they can pop out as many as they want to, so the right one will hit the USA, and not just a limited release for select countries.

It's not saturation. Is just the 2018 portfolio, nothing special. 2017 was Nokia 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 and Nokia 3310 (the #1 selling featurephone)
