Some days ago, HMD unveiled the Nokia 7 flagship device in China and for now, this device is exclusive to the Chinese market. During the launch, HMD said that Nokia 7 is the first of its kind from the company stating that in time past, Nokia didn’t really care about design, rather, it focused on hardware parameters and strength of the phone. However, Nokia 7 is a premium, elegant, and beautiful smartphone.
Reports out of China shows that this device has attracted a lot of attention in China and after less than two days, it has officially surpassed 50,000 registrations. This figure is nowhere near the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei but it is quite good considering that Nokia is not a Chinese brand. On October 24th, Nokia 7 will commence sales and will be available in 4GB+64GB and 6GB+64GB variants which should cost 2,499 Yuan ($377) and 2,699 Yuan ($407) respectively.
As a reminder, this smartphone is only 7.9mm thick and it is very delicate with a unique humble feel. It has a 5.2-inch screen with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass which is designed using the diamond cutting process. The back of the phone is designed using the third generation Corning Gorilla glass with a 7000 series aluminum frame thus this smartphone is quite protected from a deadly drop. In terms of hardware, this smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor built with the 14nm technology coupled with 4GB/6GB and 64GB of internal storage. It comes with Android Nougat operating system and has a 3000 mAh battery capacity to keep its lights on. In the camera department, Nokia 7 is China’s first smartphone which is equipped with Zeiss lens. It has a 16MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, 80-degree wide-angle lens which supports 30fps 4K video and a 5MP selfie snapper which support positive and negative dual vision shooting. In addition, this smartphone comes with a fingerprint sensor and the screen is anti-fingerprint/grease stains. It further supports OZO panoramic audio capture technology, thus you can better capture live sound.
