A couple of months ago, HMD Global launched Nokia 7, which is a mid-range smartphone that sits somewhere between the Nokia 6 and the company’s flagship device Nokia 8. The black colour variant went on sale last month and went out of stock within minutes.
Now, the company has also started selling the white colour variant of the smartphone. The phone is now available for pre-order from online retailer JD.com and will start shipping from 12th December. To pre-order the phone, users will have to make a deposit of 99 Yuan (approximately $15).
The white colour variant of the Nokia 7 is priced at 1,999 Yuan (approximately $302) for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage model. The 6GB RAM model is not yet available. Interestingly, the black colour model, which went on sale last month, starts at 2,499 Yuan.
While both the colour models come with glass body, the company says that they have a completely different feeling. According to the company, the back model has cool and smooth feel while the white model feels warm and delicate. The company said that the white version’s plating process takes seven steps to get completed, while the black version needs around 36 hours to complete the process.
Nokia 7 features a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with support for full HD screen resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The screen is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 630 processor clocked at around 1.8GHz along with 4GB RAM.
As of storage, it comes with 64GB onboard storage and also has a microSD card slot that allows expanding storage up to 128GB. The device features a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and ZEISS lens. On the front, it packs a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture and an 84-degree wide-angle view.
The phone has a Dual-Sight mode that simultaneously captures images from the front and rear camera sensors. Connectivity options include USB-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, Cat. 6 LTE modem, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, v5.0 Bluetooth, NFC and GPS. The device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system and is fuelled by a 3,000mAh battery.
