Nokia X7 aka 7.1 Plus official now

The Nokia X7 – thats what the 7.1 Plus is called in China – is official and pre-orders start today, shipping begins next week. The notched display offers 18.7:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels.

HMD has priced Nokia X7 very competitively starting at Yuan 1699 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB RAM internal storage variant. There's also a 3500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. The dual cameras are equipped with features like Optical Image Stabilization, dual PD autofocus, AI scene detection and optimized low-light photography.

The 6.2-inch, midrange smartphone comes with impressive hardware considering its price. The display panel has HDR support and comes with brightness of 500 nits. The device is now available in China and Nokia will soon launch the device in other markets as well. Powering the device is a rather unique Snapdragon 710 processor clocked at 2.2GHz with eight Kryo 360 cores. HMD has added a third slot allowing users to expand storage up to 400GB with a microSD card. It's therefore unsurprising to see the Nokia X7 rock a state-of-the-art Zeiss-endorsed dual rear shooter setup with a primary 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor and a secondary 13MP lens for crisp portrait shots.
