Nokia's Latest Product Is a Gorgeous $349 Android Phone

Four Nokia smartphones will soon receive Android 9 Pie HMD Global confirms

HMD Global today launched yet another new device under its Android One smartphone lineup in the form of Nokia 7.1 during a launch event in London.

The notch has allowed Nokia to squeeze a 5.8-inch Full HD+ display into the physical footprint of a smaller handset. While the base worldwide model of the handset offers only 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space, the one that's set to be available in the US will feature twice as much flash memory and 4GB of RAM. This doesn't just mean that the 7.1 is capable of playing HDR10 content, but it also converts standard-definition videos to HDR10 in any video-playing app, and the results are quite noticeable. The newly announced Nokia 7.1 is also expected to have Pie before the month is out (it launches with Oreo). There was no global model of the Nokia 7 but then HMD has chose to launch the Nokia 7.1 globally.
