HMD Global joined the notch train with the Nokia X6/6.1 Plus and Nokia X5/5.1 Plus smartphones. This led people to speculate that a third phone rumored to launch as the Nokia 7.1 Plus/Nokia X7 will also have a notch. A photo alleged to be that of the phone’s display panel showed up a few days ago debunking the notch rumor. Today, another set of photos have again surfaced along with a few details of the phone.
Just like the first photo, this panel has white bezels. The side bezels are thin but the chin and forehead are thicker. The top bezel has three cut-outs which should be home to the front camera, earpiece, and proximity and light sensors.
The display of the Nokia 7.1 Plus is said to be 5.9-inches in size with a 1080 x 2160 processor. That isn’t an upgrade when compared to the Nokia 7 Plus. The main upgrade is supposed to be under the hood. Rumors floating around say the Nokia 7.1 Plus packs a Snapdragon 710 processor. This is a much superior processor compared to the Nokia 7 Plus which is powered by the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform.
The rest of the specs are still under wraps at the moment. It has been six months since the announcement of the Nokia 7 Plus, until the Nokia 7.1 Plus launches, it will remain HMD Global’s mid-range king.
