HMD Global recently launched its Nokia 7.1 smartphone in select countries in the European market. Now, expanding the phone’s availability market, the company has launched the Nokia 7.1 in Hong Kong and Macau.
The phone will be available for purchase through authorized retailers, including 1O1O, Telecom Digital Mobile, Broadway, Fortress, Weixun, Suning, among others. The Nokia 7.1 is priced at 2,588 Hong Kong Dollars, which roughly converts to $330.
The Nokia 7.1 features a 5.84-inch Full HD+ “PureDisplay” with 19:9 screen aspect ratio with a notch on top. The company claims that the PureDisplay’s internal HDR can convert the SDR content into the HDR in real-time.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s mid-range Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, which is claimed to deliver 40 percent improved performance over its predecessor Snapdragon 630. It is coupled with Adreno 509 GPU and comes in two models — 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM.
The 3GB RAM model packs 32GB of internal storage while the 4GB RAM model comes with 64GB of onboard storage. Both the models feature a microSD card slot, enabling you to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 400GB.
For photography, the phone comes with a new Zeiss imaging solution. The Nokia 7.1 has a dual camera setup on the back, with sensors stacked vertically in the top-center position. It comes with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing.
The camera comes with features like True Life HDR, Bokeh mode, Pro Camera mode, Livestream functionality, and Bothie. On the front side, it comes equipped with an AI-backed 8-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video calling.
Like other Nokia phones, this one too is a part of Google‘s Android One programme. The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box. The Finnish company has promised the Android Pie update soon and future updates for two years.
The phone comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for added security. Connectivity options on the device include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, Type-C 2.0, and NFC. The phone drives power from a 3,060mAh battery with support for fast charging.
