It'll be available at Amazon, Best Buy and B&H starting at $349, with pre-sales launching on October 5, and the phone available on October 28.
And why shouldn't they? HMD claims this native tech can charge the smartphone up to 50% in 30 minutes, which is not bad for the given device in the particular price bracket (between Euro 299 to Euro 349). By my calculations, HMD Global - the Swedish firm pulling Nokia's strings - has released a total of eight phones this year, not to mention the countless others launched in 2017 during Nokia's revival following a brief hiatus. The display is HDR10-compliant, and has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Also, the smartphone may have launched with Android 8.1 Oreo, but the Android 9 Pie update is under final stages of development. Nevertheless, the company never give it a miss when it comes to releasing a flagship (sort of) or even a budget Nokia phone in the U.S. market.
Talking about the notch, the display has received a special attention in the Nokia 7.1. Also, HMD Global promised the Nokia 7.1 will be officially available to the rest of the world next week. While the Nokia 7 Plus came with a metal unibody design, the new Nokia 7.1 comes with glass back body.More news: President Trump's emergency text message test sparks hilarious reactions on Twitter
Poco F1 beats Nokia 7.1 in terms of performance, at least on paper. For the storage, you can get up to 64GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD card slot. The camera bump from Nokia's previous devices is still present but is also barely noticeable, protruding only by 1.152mm.
The Nokia 7.1 has been announced for Europe as of now. Android 9 Pie includes features such as adaptive brightness, adaptive battery, refreshed user interface, app actions, Digital Wellbeing, app slices among others.
It's worth noting that the Finnish firm is not the only manufacturer betting customers will prioritise faster security patches and new software upgrades, with Motorola also recently a slew of similarly-priced Android One handset, the Motorola One. These work together to add artificial bokeh blur behind the subjects of portrait-style photographs. The company said that it would bring the phone to more markets in the near future. Unfortunately, we weren't able to vouch for this during our brief time with the device. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel (f/2.2) AI-enhanced camera for selfies and video calls, with support for "3D Personas" (Nokia's take on Animojis). HMD is also still pushing the weird "bothie" where you take a selfie and a picture of someone in front of you.
