The latest Android-powered smartphone, the Nokia 7.1, has just been unveiled by Nokia's current daddy HMD Global at a press conference in central London, Britain. The mid-range Android One phone may come to India as well, so here's what you need to know about the device. The Nokia 7.1 has a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display with PureDisplay technology, meaning it's compatible with HDR10. The company claims that the PureDisplay's internal HDR can convert the SDR content into the HDR in real-time.

The Android 9 Pie Beta update brings the majority of Android 9 Pie changes and features to Nokia 7 Plus.

Having said that, the update is delayed a bit for HMD's flagship smartphones such as the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco as HMD has put a release timeline of December.

Now, it does have a notch, but I can forgive that because it also contains a headphone jack.

Unlike most Android device makers, Nokia is all-in with Android One. Both the options will support storage expandability up to 400GB via microSD card.

As is the case with other Nokia handsets of late the phone has a ZEISS branded camera set up with dual 12Mp and 5Mp sensors on the back. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel (f/2.2) AI-enhanced camera for selfies and video calls, with support for "3D Personas" (Nokia's take on Animojis). During the launch event, it was mentioned on stage that HMD Global worked together with Pixelworks in order to deliver the display enhancements on Nokia 7.1.

Nokia says the dual-lens camera system should produce better, more accurate low light shots thanks to the improved HDR capabilities.

The camera comes with features like True Life HDR, Bokeh mode, Pro Camera mode, Livestream functionality, and Bothie.

The buds offer up to 3.5 hours of playback or 4 hours of talk time with the included charging case offering up to three additional charges.

HMD Global launched the Nokia 7.1 in the affordable premium segment with an HDR10 capable screen, Android One software and Snapdragon 636.

Yes, it's coming to the U.S. Best Buy in-store availability will begin November 5.

The Nokia 7.1 will be available from JB Hi-Fi (including SIM-only plans) and Harvey Norman from October 17 with an RRP of $499. On another hand, the 4GB/64GB variant has an average retail price of European Union 349 (about RM 1665). The base model of the handset that won't be sold in the US will start at €319 in Europe, whereas the more powerful one should feature a €349 price tag.
