HMD Global's Nokia 7.1 Now Generally Available Online
The Nokia 7.1, announced by HMD Global earlier this month, is now available for purchase from select online retailers. Pre-orders have been ongoing since early October, but the device is now shipping from Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo Video. The Nokia 7.1 is a premium mid-range phone that adopts the all-screen design approach with notch. It has a 5.84-inch PureDisplay that includes full HD+ resolution in a 19:9 screen that supports HDR10. The 7.1 has a 6000 series aluminum frame. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 636 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. A 12-megapixel main camera at f/1.8 and a 5-megapixel depth-sensing camera at f/2.4 rely on Zeiss Optics. Together, they can capture portrait/bokeh images. The 8-megapixel selfie camera has its own AI-assisted features to help with facial recognition for masks, stickers, and more. The 7.1 can live stream video from the front and rear cameras at the same time to Facebook and Instagram. Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, Cat 6 LTE with dual SIM support, Bluetooth 5.0 with aptX, GPS, and WiFi. The phone includes an embedded 3,060mAh battery that supports rapid charging. The 7.1 charges via USB-C and offers a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device runs the Android One version of Android 8 Oreo, which means it is near stock and will receive three years worth of monthly security upgrades and two years worth of OS upgrades. The Nokia 7.1 costs $349.
