Nokia 7 goes official, comes with ‘bothie’ camera

The new Nokia 7 is now official, stepping in as the midrange Android phone that completes HMD Global’s current line-up.
The Nokia 7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 that’s coupled with either 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage, or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage depending on the model. Space isn’t a problem here either, as it supports microSD cards.
For the display, HMD Global placed a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top of a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS LCD screen. The Nokia 7 has packed a 3,000 mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging to make sure users won’t be held back by a dead phone.
The Nokia 7 will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and to make things better, Android Oreo is promised to arrive soon after.
The smartphone will have a rear fingerprint sensor and capacitive keys. It also has NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and GPS. For ports, it has a USB Type-C and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
First came the selfies. Next came the “wefies.” Now comes the “bothies,” which is simple really. It’s just a way to use both the front and rear cameras simultaneously and put the two photos together into one image.
Sure, it’s not much, but it does have the potential to up users’ Instagram and Snapchat game. The Nokia 7 sports a 16-megapixel f/1.8 rear camera and a 5-megapixel f/2.0 front sensor.
Just like the other Nokia phones under HMD Global before, the Nokia 7 will roll out in China first and head to the United States and Europe later.
In China Nokia 7 which was released on October 24 carries a price tag CNY 2,499 for the model with 4 GB of RAM, and CNY 2,699 for the variant with 6 GB of RAM. That translates to about $377 and $407 respectively.
