The Nokia 7.1 is not new, but this new $50 discount is to die for

The Nokia 7.1 is not new, but this new $50 discount is to die for
The "new Nokia" has made a habit of announcing loads of phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona every February, and unsurprisingly, this year is no exception. But while the brand's MWC 2019 lineup even includes a US-bound flagship device with an insane five-camera array on its back, the best mid-ranger you can buy is still the Nokia 7.1.

Released just a few months ago at a recommended price point of $350, the notched 5.8-incher can be purchased for 50 bucks less right now from a number of authorized US retailers. Best Buy has it at $299.99 in a blue shade, B&H Photo Video charges the same three Benjamins for the same color option with an extra tempered glass screen protector thrown in, while the "gloss steel" variant is available at Newegg for $50 off alongside a free Bluetooth speaker.

Those gifts aren't typically very expensive, mind you, costing around 20 and 10 bucks respectively, but they're certainly better than nothing. And the Nokia 7.1 is a solid bargain at $300 anyway, running Android 9.0 Pie on the software side of things with minimal proprietary "optimization", and packing a respectable Snapdragon 636 processor in conjunction with 4GB RAM and 64 gigs of internal storage space.

Made from premium metal and glass, the mid-end handset sports a high-quality "PureDisplay" with HDR playback support, as well as dual rear-facing cameras with 12 and 5 megapixels, Zeiss optics, and depth-sensing technology capable of producing "effortless bokeh blur." The 3,060 mAh battery is no featherweight either, considering the relatively energy-efficient SoC under the hood of the Nokia 7.1.

Unlocked for unrestricted use on GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile, this very reasonably priced, reasonably powerful phone also comes with a standard US warranty wherever you might choose to buy it from. Well, at least as far as these three retailers are concerned.

Check out the deal at Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and Newegg
