HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the Nokia 7.1 - the first smartphone to come with PureDisplay screen technology aimed at the American audience, available for $349.
The Nokia 7.1's Full HD+ 5.84" and 19:9 screen ratio HDR display lies within a mirror-finish glass and an aluminum frame that holds it all together. Supporting HDR10, the Nokia 7.1 PureDisplay delivers higher contrast (1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) and greater clarity; revealing the detail in both light and dark areas as well as vibrant colours.
The display will automatically adjust brightness and contrast to ambient lighting conditions. Non-HDR content is up-scaled in real-time using a dedicated 16bit engine, processing millions of pixels per second.
The Nokia 7.1 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform, which is optimised for content consumption. The USB type-C fast charging port delivers up to 50% of your battery back in 30 mins.
The Ndevice features ZEISS Optics 12MP/5MP dual cameras with two phase detection to enable fast autofocus giving great shots in in both bright and low light conditions. You can capture studio style shots with the rear depth camera supported 'bokeh' mode as well as front portrait shots. You can also reduce the effects of unstable hands while filming with Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) technology and relive your memories as if you were still there with 360° Nokia spatial audio.
The new camera UI gives you control of white balance, ISO, aperture and shutter speed using the Pro Camera Mode. The Nokia 7.1 AI enhanced front facing camera introduces facial recognition to deploy animated 3D personas/masks and filters. One touch live stream your #bothies with the use of fun filters in real time to Facebook and YouTube direct from your camera app. Google Lens and Motion Photos can also be accessed directly from the app.
The Nokia 7.1 joins the line-up of Nokia smartphones in the Android One family, and comes pre-loaded with the latest in AI-powered innovations developed by Google.
The smartphone will receive three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates, as guaranteed in the Android One programme. It is also ready for the Android 9 software update, which includes AI powered features. The Adaptive Battery feature limits battery usage from apps you don't use often, and App Actions predicts what you're about to do so you can get to your next action quickly.
HMD also announced the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones.
Weighing 5 grams per earbud, the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds provide clear audio playback and voice calls with up to 3.5 hours play time and give fans the freedom to charge on the move with a pocketable charging case holding three charges (giving you a total of up to 16 hours of quality audio entertainment including the charging case power).
The Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones are designed for active on-the-move fans. Connected to a neckband that nestles comfortably around your neck, this accessory is ideal for commuting with up to 10 hours of playback time from a single charge. A built-in vibration function alerts user of incoming calls, and with the smart magnetic earbuds, users can separate them from each other to answer calls or play music without having to take the smartphone out of their pocket.
The Nokia 7.1 comes in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel and is available in selected markets incuding the U.S. from October in two variants - 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. The global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB and €349 for the 4GB/64GB.
