Nokia Coming Soon

Another mid-range Nokia phone teased, could be the 7.1 Plus with a mega display

The design of the smartphone is faintly visible in the teaser with the rear design similar to the Nokia 7.1. Nokia smartphones with Android One offer great storage and battery life right out of the box and come pre-loaded with the very latest in AI-powered innovations developed by Google. The Nokia 7.1 is set to get Pie before the end of the month, while the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco will get Pie next month. There's a dedicated microSD card as well for storage expansion up to 400GB. The model featuring 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage will be made available, but its pricing is yet to be revealed. The smartphone features a dual rear camera setup that includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor and 5-megapixel secondary monochrome sensor.

In terms of performance, the Nokia 3.1 Plus is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 SoC coupled with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. For selfies, there is an 8MP camera with screen flash. With Adaptive Battery, Android 9 Pie uses deep learning to understand patterns in phone usage and prioritises battery power for apps that are important to you. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, Global Positioning System and a micro USB port. The back does look nice but it is also a fingerprint magnet that attracts a lot of smudges while you're handling the phone.

While the release date is still pending to get announced, the launching of the Nokia 7.1 in other regions have confirmed on several major features on the phone.

The Nokia 8110, on the other hand, sports a 2.45-inch QVGA colour display. As it is a feature device, it does not sport a selfie camera.
