Nokia 7.1 may not be the only new smartphone from HMD Global launching in the coming days. According to some new information released by the always knowledgeable Roland Quandt, the Finnish company would be ready to announce a Nokia 7.1 Plus variant.
In this article, we will try to clarify the two new products that have created a bit of confusion in recent weeks.
Nokia 7.1, or what we can define as the “standard variant”, has the codename Rooster (ROO), while the Nokia 7.1 Plus is internally identified with the codename Phoenix.
As you can imagine, the Plus version will boast better hardware and some slightly different aesthetics. Below is a summary of the main technical specifications so far leaked:
Nokia 7.1 Specifications (TA-1100)
- 5.8-inch IPS display with FHD+ (2244×1080 pixels) resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC
- 3GB / 4GB of RAM
- 32GB / 64GB of internal storage expandable via Micro SD slot
- Dual 12MP + 5MP rear camera with Zeiss optics
- 8MP front camera integrated into the notch
- Android 8.1 Oreo operating system (Android One)
Nokia 7.1 is expected to be announced on next October 11th. According to the most recent rumors, sales will begin on October 22nd at a cost of around $449 for the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage variant.
Someone has been testing Google “Bonito” with GFXBench lately. Make of this what you will. And HMD “Phoenix” is coming soon. I think that’s Nokia 7.1 Plus, while “Rooster” (aka ROO) is Nokia 7.1. (big bird, small bird, you know…) https://t.co/G95tIm1EN1
