Nokia 7.1 goes on sale in the United States for $350
The most recent smartphone launched by HMD Global, the mid-range Nokia 7.1 is now available for purchase in the United States through various retailers. The phone comes unlocked and is fully compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and Cricket, but it will not work on Sprint and Verizon.

Three major US retailers now offer the Nokia 7.1 for just $350: Amazon, B&H Video and Best Buy. Although HMD Global announced the smartphone will be available in Glossy Midnight Blue and Glossy Steel, just the former is up for grabs in the US, at least for the moment.

Unlike the rest of the Nokia-branded phones launched by HMD, this one comes with Android 8.1 Oreo right out of the box, but the Finnish company promised an Android Pie update will arrive by the end of the next month.



Nokia 7.1 may arguably be the best Android One smartphone available on the market, so expect a lightweight stock OS with a clean UI and no gimmicky skins that could drag the user experience.

Bloatware is also kept to a minimum, as the Nokia 7.1 comes with a few HMD Global pre-installed apps. Not to mention that Android One smartphones should receive OS updates a bit faster than standard devices.
