Nokia 7.1 Plus moves another step closer to a global release with FCC certification

Nokia 7.1 Plus moves another step closer to a global release with FCC certification
Whether you think HMD Global should take a high-end gamble or not, it appears a nostalgia-evoking Nokia 9 PureView is in the works. But first, an upper mid-range Nokia 7.1 and/or 7.1 Plus are expected to see daylight in India on October 11.

We already have quite a bit of inside information on HMD’s third (and fourth?) notch-housing handset, recently revealed to carry model number TA-1131 by China’s FCC-equivalent certification agency.

Following in the footsteps of the X5 and X6, the phone is likely to be branded the Nokia X7 in the world’s largest smartphone market, while its global variant may have just paid the US Federal Communications Commission a quick regulatory visit under the TA-1113 model number.

The paperwork was apparently submitted on September 29, with a number of documents made public just yesterday, disclosing among others the battery capacity of this “mysterious” HMD-designed, China-made TA-1113 device.


This fits the 3,400 mAh cell size confirmed for the TA-1131 in Tenaa’s database, which is unlikely to be a coincidence. Unfortunately, the FCC is as secretive as usual regarding other specifications and features.

Then again, if there’s only one phone coming after all, it might as well be official already. Its 6.18-inch screen is expected to sport 2246 x 1080 resolution, while a Snapdragon 710 processor likely resides under the hood, paired with up to 6GB RAM and either 64 or 128GB storage space. 

Android 9.0 Pie should run the software show out the box, with 12 + 13MP dual cameras mounted on the handset’s back, and a single 20MP selfie shooter in tow. There are no words on pricing yet, but that’s what launch events are for.

I'm eagerly awaiting this, but I'm not a fan of the smallish battery for such a large smartphone. I hope the SD 710 is as power efficient as the SD6xx series, if not more so.

Could it be that Nokia is FINALLY starting to get more phones in the US by bringing the 7.1 and 7.1 Plus stateside?

Definitely will be trying this out, whether it comes to the U.S. officially or not. As long as it has the LTE bands I require, it's a buy. If the battery holds up the way I want it to, it's a keeper.

If it doesn't have the "proper" LTE bands to work, then it's not going to be an optimum experience for various reasons. Common sense facts.

It can have the proper LTE bands to work properly without being officially released in the U.S. Research and reading comprehension will inform you of this.
