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.

Asus ZenFone 6 Review

Has Asus cracked the bezel-less design with the ZenFone 6? We think so - read our review and find out why.
Should I Buy The Asus ZenFone 6?
The ZenFone 6 is a phenomenal smartphone, offering an innovative Flip Camera system that not only provides high-end front- and rear-facing cameras, but allows for a full-screen display free of hole-punch cameras or notches. Combine that with high-end internals and all-day battery life, and you've got a great, all-round smartphone. 

Samsung Q70R Review (2019)

Not as well specified as in previous years, but the 2019 Q70R is a superb QLED TV which has enough features from the flagship Q90R to make it great value at this price. Find our more in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Q70R QLED 4K TV?
Highly impressive QLED picture quality along with the all-encompassing Smart Hub combine to make the Q70R a great choice if you can’t justify spending a whole lot more on the Q90R.

Huawei MateBook 14 Review

The MateBook 14 is one of Huawei's new laptops for 2019 and is the perfect all-rounder. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Huawei MateBook 14?
The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter Review

We test Xiaomi's electric scooter, which will keep the big kids entertained for hours. It's now officially available in the UK, too, which makes it even more appealing.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Electric Scooter?
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is expensive and not allowed on UK roads out the box, but if you have somewhere to take it this toy is an awful lot of fun. It's fast, smooth and almost entirely silent, with a battery that just keeps on going and decent brakes that stop you quickly but safely. This scooter is best reserved for the big kids, but that's no bad thing.
