  • Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

Best of all, the Nokia 7.1 runs Android One.

When HMD Global set out to revive Nokia's name in the mobile market, it quickly set its self apart not just in price but by also doing what very few OEMs did. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 636 SoC which is the midrange powerhouse and has either 3 or 4GB of LPPDDR4X RAM or 32 or 64GB of eMMC 5.1 internal storage. A layer of Corning Gorilla Glass protects the display.

Available in gloss midnight blue (which looks like black, as you can see from our pics) and gloss steel. the 7.1 weighs in at 160g and is 149.7 x 71.18mm in terms of footprint.

When the inevitable does happen, the Nokia 7.1 features USB type-C with fast charging which can deliver up to 50 percent of your battery back in 30 minutes.

Unlike last year's $400 China-only Nokia 7, the Nokia 7.1 is coming to the U.S. and Europe for around $350. The phone is also able to support microSD card with storage space of up to 400GB.

HMD once again partnered with lens experts at German optics company Zeiss in order to design the cameras on the Nokia 7.1. The smartphone will receive Android 9 Pie update next month. This allows for the Bokeh mode to be activated with the Nokia 7.1, allowing the user to snap images with a background blur effect. HMD says that the global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB variant and €349 for the 4GB/64GB variant.

The 5.84-inch FHD+ 19:9 display is packed inside a compact body that belies the size of the screen, with 2.5D curved glass on top and rounded corners adding to the ergonomic feel. The company claims that the PureDisplay's internal HDR can convert the SDR content into the HDR in real-time. A 3,060mAh battery with fast charging capability keeps the whole package alive. It will be updated to Android 9 Pie via an update in November. On a single charge, the True Wireless Earbuds offer up to 3.5 hours of audio playback or 4 hours of talk time, but the charging case can give them another 3 full charges, essentially bringing it up to 14 hours of music or 16 hours of talk time.

The Nokia 7.1 is the latest addition to Nokia's Android One family, which includes the mid-range Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 Plus, and the high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco.

The widespread availability - crucially, including in-store at Best Buy from early next month - should put this phone front and center in front of prospective buyers and it has a real chance of being a success for Nokia stateside. The "dual-anodised diamond-cut coloured edges", which we assume is marketing bumf for "shiny and metallic", help to give the Nokia 7.1 a heft not always associated with phones at this price.
