HMD Global, the license holder of Nokia, recently unveiled a slew of smartphones at the MWC 2018 global event held in Barcelona. The list includes Nokia 6 (2018), Android Go edition based Nokia 1, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco version. The Nokia 7 Plus acts as a bridge between the moderately priced Nokia 6 (2018) and the much higher priced Nokia 8 flagship device. The Nokia 7 Plus is expected to launch in India somewhere around May 2018 and may be priced around Rs 23,000.
Nokia 7 Plus was made available in China yesterday, and the smartphone reportedly went out of stock within 5 minutes of its launch. In China, the 4GB RAM variant of the device with 64GB of internal storage is available for CYN 2,300 which comes out to Rs 23,598 roughly. While the premium version with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is priced at CYN 2,400 which is around Rs 25,659.
With not much changes expected in the pricing front, the $GB RAM version may be priced around Rs 23,000 while the high-end 6GB RAM version may be available for Rs 25,000. However, the company is yet to confirm the official price of these two variants.
To recall the specifications, the Nokia 7 Plus comes with 6-inch full HD+ LCD edge-to-edge display screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with two variants of 4GB and 6GB RAM. The internal storage space is the same for the two variants at 64GB and may be further upgraded up to 256GB with the help of a micro-SD card.
The Nokia 7 Plus runs on the latest Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box and is fueled by a 3,800 mAh battery with the fast charging 3.0 technology. It is enough to last for two days depending on the usage pattern of the user.
Coming to the camera department, the devices features ZEISS powered dual-camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 12-megapixel camera and a secondary 13-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash. On the front, the device sports a 16-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling.
