Nokia 7.1 release date, price and specs


The Nokia 7.1 is an Android One phone for a mid-range price. Here are all the details

HMD Global added to its burgeonoing Nokia range by announcing the Nokia 7.1 at an event in London. The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo with a promised update to Android Pie very soon.

HMD does not say the ".1" part of the name out loud, so this is the Nokia 7. The ".1" denotes that the phone runs Android One, Google's close-to stock software that gives monthly security patches. 

It is an entirely different phone to the existing Nokia 7 Plus, which is still on sale. Here are all the details on the new Nokia 7.1.

Nokia 7.1 release date
The Nokia 7.1 will go on pre-order on 5 October across Europe.

How much does the Nokia 7.1 cost?
In the UK it will be on sale from 17 October and retails for £299. HMD says that the global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB variant and €349 for the 4GB/64GB variant.

Which version you can get hold of is region dependent. 
What are the specs of the Nokia 7.1?
For a sub-£300 phone, the Nokia 7.1 has the specs you might expect. A notched 5.84in 19:9 display continues 2018's aggresssive shift into this aesthetic.

The body is made from 6000 series aluminium and the front and back are glass, though you don't get wireless charging. 

As is the case with other Nokia handsets of late the phone has a ZEISS branded camera set up with dual 12Mp and 5Mp sensors on the back. The second lens here allows for depth sensing and use of the popular bokeh effect.

It also boasts fast autofocus and HDR, good features to have on a mid-range smartphone but not uncommon in today's market. HMD is also still pushing the weird "bothie" where you take a selfie and a picture of someone in front of you. Go figure.

The Nokia 7.1 has a power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, which is more interesting as it may prove to give excellent battery life alongside the sparse Android One software.

Sparse might be good in this case though, and the Nokia 7.1 shows HMD carving out a niche for affordable, widely available smartphones running clean Android with timely updates.

We'll have a hands-on review soon.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.
