Leaked: Nokia 7 Plus Will Be The First Nokia Device With 18:9 Display
A few days ago, news of the Nokia 7 Plus came about. At the beginning, it appeared that it would be an incremental upgrade to the Nokia 7. Apart from the Nokia 7 Plus, the company is expected to launch the Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition, Nokia 1 and a concept phone with a Penta-lens.
A new leak has revealed the design of the Nokia 7 Plus which is expected to be launched at MWC 2018. The Nokia 7 Plus might be the first device from the company to feature an 18:9 aspect ratio. The image also reveals a few key details about the camera on the Nokia 7 Plus. The camera will offer 2x zoom thanks to a wide-angle 12MP and telephoto 13MP lens. Similar to the Nokia 8, the device will also have the “Bothie” feature.
Nokia 7 Plus Expectations
The Nokia 7 was launched barely three months ago. To expect a completely overhauled 7 Plus might be a bit foolish. Also, “Plus” variants launched after the regular variants usually just feature minor upgrades. The Nokia 7 plus will also feature a dual-tone design thanks to a few gilded bits and pieces like the fingerprint scanner ring, the dual-camera casing and the Nokia logo on the back.
The Nokia 7 has a 5.2 inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 px resolution. The Nokia 7 Plus will have a 6 inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio hence, the “Plus” moniker. The fingerprint sensor will be placed on the back, just like the Nokia 7 although, the device had a 16:9 aspect ratio and thick bezels.
The Nokia 7 Plus will have a 12MP wide-angle lens along with a 13MP telephoto lens. The front of the smartphone is expected to house a 16MP camera with no LED flash. The primary camera setup will also have a Nokia Pro mode along with the Bothie feature.
The Nokia 7 Plus is expected to be launched at MWC 2018. However, HMD Global could launch the smartphone in China first and then announce its global availability at MWC.
