Here’s a fresh set of Nokia 7 unboxing and hands-on photos that comes to you courtesy IThomes. Do watch out for a comprehensive review of Nokia’s latest mid-range smartphone by Linus here on Gizmochina. Before that happens, we may as well make do with these photos which capture the device from all angles, including the packaging and the entire content in the box.
The Nokia 7 comes enclosed in a colourful and attractive packaging box. At the back of the packaging, the features of the device are printed there. Inside the box, you’ll find all the usual stuff that accompanies a new smartphone. There is the phone itself, a silicone protective cover, a charging adapter, SIM tray ejector and a USB-C cable.
This time around, we get a much closer look at the Nokia 7 and the device seems to look more beautiful than we thought. It features a glass body laced with a 7000-series aluminium frame and that gives it a premium look. The rear glass panel is a vacuum moulded 3D Gorilla Glass 3 panel. The device isn’t in anyway a rugged smartphone so don’t go thinking it won’t shatter. It isn’t shatterproof, neither is the device waterproof. It comes with an IP54 rating which is nothing more than a splash-proof body.
Apart from the Gloss Black variant on display here, the Nokia 7 is also available in a Matte White colour variant. Generally, the mid-range model sports a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Perhaps, the major new feature onboard the phone is the 16MP ZEISS lens at the rear with a f/1.8 aperture. The camera setup has a slight bump from the body of the phone and is located in the middle with the LED flash underneath it. By the way, we’ve seen some of the Nokia 7’s camera samples and even though it didn’t perform badly, they are nowhere near being spectacular. There is also a 5MP selfie shooter onboard.
In other specs, the device is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor backed by 4GB of RAM on some models and 6GB RAM on others. There is 64GB of expandable storage on board. It gets its juice from a generous 3,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging. The device comes with a USB Type-C port. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The first official sales would commence on October 24 in China with the 4GB RAM version clutching a price tag of 2,499 Yuan (~$377) while the 6 GB RAM variant costs 2,699 Yuan (~$407). Unfortunately. there is no word yet on its global rollout. Check out more of the Nokia 7’s hands-on photos below.
