Having already launched a plethora of smartphones this year, HMD Global is now adding another member to its burgeoning line-up. For now, the phone's availability and price in Malaysia are not yet known though.
The Nokia 7.1's highlight is its display. The smartphone features aluminum body that goes through multiple fabrication processes for toughness, durability and good aesthetics. The display is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The phone will be sold in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel colour options, across global markets, starting October this year. Poco F1 also comes in a special "Armoured" edition which uses a sturdy Kevlar material and a textured back. As the name suggests, they're not connected by a wire, working similarly to Apple's AirPods, and come in a case which is also capable of charging the earbuds.
The 5.84-inch Full HD Plus (2280 x 1080) HDR10-ready display looks bright, colorful, and incredibly sharp - ideal for viewing movies and videos.
Under the hood, you'll find a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which HMD says will offer enhanced performance while keeping power consumption down. Oh, and there's a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C for charging and Bluetooth 5.0, too.
Keep your eyes peeled for our full Nokia 7.1 review shortly.
Tesla shares soar after Musk settles with SEC
Tesla jumped as much as 19% to $315.45 at 7:45 am NY time, more than enough to offset Friday's 14% plunge. You're looking at photos of the next-gen Tesla Roadster sent to us by a reader in the US.
When it comes to the battery, its 3,060mAh offering is larger than the iPhone XS which only comes in at 2,658mAh. Snapdragon 845 is Qualcomm's best processor, and Xiaomi phones have a reputation for long battery life. For selfies, there's an 8-megapixel camera up front.
This double camera enables fast and accurate autofocus in both bright and low light conditions and Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) technology reduces camera shake. The smartphone also lets users adjust the blur effect on photos.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global commented on the launch, "We believe the best camera is the one you carry with you, so we've designed a new imaging experience powered by ZEISS Optics, featuring rapid auto focus thanks to the two-phase detection technology to capture your own incredible HDR photography". As for the software, the handset is running Android 8.1 Oreo, but since it belongs to the Android One lineup, there are several benefits to this. If you're looking for a lovely phone with decent specs, Android One (Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, with Android 9 Pie coming in November), and a price that won't break the bank, the Nokia 7.1 is a good bet!
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.
