Nokia’s high-end offering, the Nokia 7 Plus, is coming at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. Based on Android One, the rumored smartphone is said to have an 18:9 display dual cameras and more.
Originally announced in China back in October 2017, the smartphone got buried until now. With the MWC just ahead of us, Nokia 7 Plus might get to see the light of day.
Design and Display
The Nokia 7 Plus will have an aluminum body with a glass front. Initially, only two colors, White and Black are expected on the phone. Despite the fact that we noticed some exquisite color options in Nokia 8, the upcoming flagship might have to settle for the two mainstream choices.
It will have a 6 inch Full HD+ IPS display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and minimal bezels on the sides. The fingerprint sensor will be on the back, similar to Nokia 8.
Hardware and OS
On the hardware side of things, Nokia 7 Plus will be powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor with 4/6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
If the rumor about Nokia 7 Plus being an Android One phone are true, expect the phone to come with AOSP based Android Oreo.
12+13 MP Dual Camera Setup
The Nokia 7 Plus is said to flaunt a combination of 12 MP and 13 MP cameras at the back. Other features include dual pixel phase detection, autofocus, 2x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss optics, and dual-LED dual-tone flash. You can record a stable video at [email protected]
At the front, we might get to see a 16 MP single lens with f/2.0 aperture. However, it can also record videos at 1080p. These camera features surfaced from a Geekbench post, for the SD 660/ 4GB RAM variant.
Battery and Price
If Nokia somehow nails the pricing for Nokia 7 Plus, it might just put the legendary phonemaker back on the forefront with a killer mid-range offering. No details about the price or the battery have been leaked yet so we can’t say anything for sure.
If the rumors are to be considered, here’s a brief list of the expected specifications:
- A 6.0 inches IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution (1080 x 2160) pixels
- Octa-core Snapdragon 660 (4×2.2 GHz Kryo 260 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260)
- Adreno 512 GPU
- Android Oreo 8.0
- 4 or 6 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage(extendable up to 256 GB via microSD card)
- Built-in Wi-Fi 802.11 support, Bluetooth 5.0, and FM Radio
- Type-C 1.0 USB reversible connector
- Fast battery charging (18W, 9V/2A)
Analysts are still confused that whether Nokia 7 Plus is actually showing up at MWC or not. However, a Geekbench listing about a supposed Nokia 7 Plus has revealed impressive figures. As of January 26, the Geekbench scorecard says that Nokia 7 Plus can punch a 1636 Single-core score and a 5902 multi-core score.
With expected entry at the MWC 2018 event, we might get a confirmed release date by February 26.
