Leaked Nokia 7 Plus Renders Reveal Thin Bezels And An Impressive Design
HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 in China on 20th October. While many expected the company to launch the smartphone in India as well, that did not happen. After a successful stint in China, HMD Global is preparing to launch a ‘Plus’ variant of the Nokia 7 at MWC 2018. The Nokia 7 Plus is expected to have a much better design and an upgraded chipset.
New renders of the Nokia 7 Plus have been leaked and reveals an impressive new design. The bezels are significantly thinner than the Nokia 7 and the glossy back panel has a golden hue around the camera and fingerprint sensor rims. This design language is similar to the Nokia 6 (2018) design and it looks like HMD Global will implement this in future Nokia devices as well.
It is also expected to have an all-glass design with an aluminium frame. If so, HMD Global could introduce wireless charging support although, it feels like the company might keep that feature for a marquee phone like the Nokia 8 Sirocco or Nokia 9. Recently, a few promotional images of the Nokia 7 Plus were leaked which revealed a few details about the upcoming smartphone.
It is fair to say that the Nokia 7 Plus could be the first Nokia smartphone with an 18:9 aspect ratio and possibly, wireless charging.
Nokia 7 Plus Rumour Round-Up:
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.
Under the hood, the Nokia 7 Plus is expected to have the Snapdragon 660 chipset. According to a benchmark listing, the Nokia 7 Plus will have 4GB of RAM. Expect 64GB of onboard storage which will be expandable via a microSD card. The Nokia 7 Plus will also run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
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.
