Leaked Nokia 7.1 Plus renders
UPDATE: This smartphone was previously mistaken for the flagship Nokia 9. However, the certification listing has since been updated with more information that confirms that the device is actually the Nokia 7.1 Plus.
Ahead of its release next month alongside the regular Nokia 7.1, the notch-bearing Nokia 7.1 Plus has just been certified in China, with the listing itself confirming every last detail about the smartphone.
previous renders have revealed that the device will sport a new glass build. Regardless, the listing in question does detail some of the device's physical characteristics such as the dimensions (154.8 × 75.76 × 7.97 mm). These confirm that despite the larger 6.18-inch display that is present on the new device, the Nokia 7.1 Plus will actually be slightly smaller than the Nokia 7 Plus (158.4 x 75.6 x 8 mm) which boasts a 6-inch display. Another external detail comes in the form of the cameras. The rear of the device boasts a main 13-megapixel camera and a secondary 12-megapixel sensor, and up front sits a 20-megapixel selfie snapper.While the listing is yet to be updated with actual pictures of the smartphone,
Moving on to the internal specifications, the listing lists an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. While unconfirmed, this does coincide with rumors of the upper-midrange Snapdragon 710. As confirmed earlier today, this will then be coupled with two configurations: 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. This will then be coupled with a 3,400mAh pack and, rather surprisingly, the outdated Android 8.1 Oreo.
Those interested in the Nokia 7.1 Plus can expect the smartphone to go official on October 4. Upon the start of sales, consumers will be able to purchase it in either blue, red, or silver.
