Nokia 7 Global Launch May Happen in Early 2018

HMD Global's mid-range smartphone, the Nokia 7 is now likely to launch in the global market in early 2018.

HMD Global, the company that holds the license to manufacture Nokia-branded smartphones, launched its Nokia 7 in China recently. Fresh information suggests that the recently spotted TA-1041 phone could be the global edition of Nokia 7.

If you recall, the Nokia 6 was launched in China in January 2017, and HMD made the Nokia 6 global at the MWC 2017 event.

But we are still not sure what exactly will the company release.

Nokia said last week it would start booking revenue, including a one-off catch-up payment, from the fourth quarter, the report said. HMD Global is said to have scheduled an worldwide event on January 19 where it is expected to announce multiple devices including Nokia 9. While the company is yet to confirm the January event, it won't come as surprise if the same platform is used to announce the global availability of the Nokia 7. The company is also planning to launch the revised version of Nokia 6 AKA Nokia 6 2018 in early 2018. There's no official confirmation from HMD yet on the global launch date.

Currently, the smartphone is available in two variants in China. The Nokia 7 is powered by the Snapdragon 630 processor, and is available in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants.

As per reports, the Nokia 1 would feature an IPS display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, 8GB ROM, and 1GB RAM. The phone will reportedly be having 8GB of internal storage and a micro sd card slot for expandable memory. That said, the Nokia 7 features a 16 MP camera at the back and a 5 MP camera on the front. The base variant is priced at RMB 2,499 (roughly Rs. 24,443), while the high-end variant is priced at RMB 2,699 (roughly Rs 26,399). The smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is backed by a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

On the connectivity front, the device features WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB type-C port and NFC. It measures 141.20 x 71.40 x 7.90 (height x width x thickness).
