Amazon's deal takes the Nokia 7.1 to an all-time low2
With Black Friday three weeks away, retailers and carriers are offering some deals that you can take advantage of now. For example, the Nokia 7.1, a member of the Android One family, is now on sale at Amazon (via Android Police) for the lowest price that we've seen. The device, roughly a year old, is available for $209.99. That's a savings of $53 or 20% off of Amazon's usual price for the model.
As an Android One device, the Nokia 7.1 features near-stock Android. It is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5.8-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2280, which works out to an aspect ratio of 19:9. A Snapdragon 636 SoC is found under the hood along with 4GB of memory and 64GB of expandable storage. Those requiring additional storage can access the 400GB microSD slot. On the back, there is a 12MP camera accompanied by a 5MP depth sensor, and a front-facing 8MP snapper takes care of selfies. Keeping the lights on is a 3060mAh battery. The device is scheduled to receive the Android 10 update sometime this quarter. If you want to buy the Nokia 7.1 for this price, you will have to accept the model in Blue. And we should point out that this model can be used on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.
Back in August, the handset was priced at $249.99 so the current deal appears to be the best to date. But there is a gamble if you take advantage of any sale before Black Friday; three weeks from now, you might look back and wonder what possessed you to pay so much for the phone.
