The Nokia X7 – that is exactly what the Nokia 7.1 Plus is called in China, has been launched in the Asian country. Pre-orders is already ongoing, and the phone will be shipped next week. One good news is that the Nokia X7 is significantly more affordable than what most of us expected. This posy contains some useful information you need to know about the device, such as its key features, full specification, and price.
Nokia X7 (Nokia 7.1 Plus) Features
Here are some of the features you will get from the Nokia X7 when you eventually buy it. It came with a 6.18 inch notched screen with 1080 + resolution and good features; which includes 500 nits brightness, 1,500:1 contrast, 96% NTSC colour gamut coverage and DCI-P3 support. It also have a Pure Display like the one we saw on the Nokia 7.1, and features SDR to HDR conversion in real time.
The Nokia X7 is powered by the new Snapdragon 710 chipset with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The internal storage options available are 64GB and 128GB, that is if you go for the 6GB RAM model. The phone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo at launch, but there will be a future upgrade to Android 9.0 Pie.
The Nokia X7 have a dual camera on its back. The main module uses a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4µm pixels, a bright f/1.8 aperture and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), EIS is available too. These pixels can capture almost twice as much light as 1.0µm pixels and feature Dual Pixel autofocus to boot.
Of course, the lens is Zeiss-branded. The secondary module has a 13MP sensor with an f/2.4 fixed focus lens, but it seems to be just a depth sensor, so not a huge improvement over the Nokia 7.1.
At the front, you will find a 20MP selfie camera in the notch. It can do pixel binning in the dark, to help the 0.9µm pixels perform better. The S710 has advanced hardware to power AI and the Nokia X7 uses it extensively in the camera app – AI bokeh effect, AI recognition for 18 scenes and so on.
The Nokia X7 package comes with an 18W fast charger to fill half of the 3500mAh battery in just 30 minutes. It works over the USB-C port and speaking of wired ports, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on board.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus is a dual-SIM phone with a hybrid slot in case you need more storage. VoLTE is supported out of the box.
