Nokia 7+ with Android One, entry-level Nokia 1 may launch


A couple of days back, the Nokia 7 Plus was leaked through press renders and now fresh images have surfaced that shows the phone in all its glory.

It has been reported that HMD Global will announce a handful of Nokia devices, including Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 9 aka Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 1 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC 2018).

Notably, the Nokia 7+ will be an Android One smartphone which means you will get stock Android (likely Android Oreo) with timely updates for at least two years.

The Nokia 7 Plus is also rumored to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor under the hood and may come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. What's interesting is that the Nokia 7+ will come with Android One branding. One of these smartphones is the global variant of the recently launch Nokia 7 smartphone in China called the Nokia 7 Plus.

The Nokia 1, being an Android Go device, will have entry-level specifications. This could one of the first smartphones to launch with Android Oreo Go Edition, which is a more light-weight version of Android Oreo. The model seemingly has rear Zeiss cameras with an LED flash and fingerprint sensors included just below the rear cameras.

The Nokia 1, from what we know so far, is expected to come with a 720p display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage much like the Nokia 2 which was launched a year ago in India at Rs 6,999. The Nokia 6 had the crown until now, but very soon, the Nokia 7 Plus will take it. It will support a microSD card slot for expandable storage. At the front of the phone, there will be a 16-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. Above the display, we can see the front camera module and the earpiece, whereas the bottom shows a thick chin. Add in their proprietary camera apps and you have an ideal phone in my eyes.
