Yesterday, well-known tipster Evan Blass had revealed first renders of the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus Android One smartphone. Today, a Chinese publication has revealed a leaked photo of what appears to be the real Nokia 7 Plus smartphone.
The screenshot shows that the Nokia 7 Plus could be the first Nokia phone to arrive with full screen design. The corners of the phone are rounded. Its 18:9 aspect ratio display is said to be placed under a 2.5D curved display.
“Namaste” mentioned on the top-left corner of the screen is an Indian word which means a respectful greeting. Also, an Indian name “Raj Sharma” is mentioned below the date on the screen. These things suggest that the smartphone could be heading to India soon.
The above renders that were leaked by Blass show that the Nokia 7 Plus will be arriving in the market as an Android One phone. The renders have also revealed that the Pearl White and Black color variants of the phone will be sporting orange accents. It is speculated that the handset could be sporting a metal unibody design and its finish will have a ceramic appeal.
Its Geekbench listing has revealed that it could be the first phone from the company to feature Snapdragon 660 chipset. The SoC will be coupled by 4 GB of RAM. The backside of the phone features Carl Zeiss certified dual camera setup that may include 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. The rear panel also features a fingerprint scanner.
It is likely to house a 6-inch display that will support Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. It may come preinstalled with Android 8.0 Oreo and since it is an Android One phone, it may be soon treated with Android 8.1 Oreo. As of this writing, there is no information available on its pricing.
HMD Global is expected to announce the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 1 Android Go phone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech exhibition on Feb. 25. Rumors have it that some other phones like Nokia 8 Sirocco (could be Nokia 9) and global variants of Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 3310 4G may also get unveiled at MWC 2018.
