HMD Global on Thursday announced the Nokia 7.1 at an event in London.

The Nokia 7.1 features a 5.84-inch Full HD+ "PureDisplay" with 19:9 screen aspect ratio with a notch on top. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform coupled with Adreno 509 GPU and 3GB/4GB of RAM. While the base global model of the handset offers only 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space, the one that's set to be available in the USA will feature twice as much flash memory and 4GB of RAM. Latest in the Finnish firm's reboot of the Nokia smartphone range, the Nokia 7.1 packs dual rear cameras with Zeiss optics. At the bottom there's a USB Type-C port for recharging the 3,060 mAh battery, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

A specific release date wasn't given for either set, but they should be available around the same time as the new Nokia 7.1. The device starts at $349 in the United States and £299 in the United Kingdom, where you'll also be able to buy a 32GB model of the device. It runs stock Android Oreo out-of-the-box, with an update to Android Pie scheduled to arrive soon. The new Nokia 7.1 brings a similar design language as the other two, but with two notable new features - PureDisplay screen technology and Zeiss-branded dual cameras. The smartphone will be on pre-order starting on October 5 with actual shipments coming on October 28. While the Nokia 7.1 will retailing from Euro 299, the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds comes with price tag of Euro 129.

In terms of connectivity, the Nokia 7.1 offers dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, and Global Positioning System with GLONASS.

The Nokia 7.1 sports decent mid-range hardware and if HMD decides to launch the phone as an online-only model in India, we could see it landing at around Rs 17,999, marginally higher than the Nokia 6.1 Plus which also has the same Snapdragon 636 SoC. And then there's Android One, which will ensure that you're up-to-date with OS upgrades for two years and security updates for three. It comes with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing.

The camera, from a brief tests, seems to be solid, and there's enough power inside the Nokia 7.1 to keep Android ticking along nicely. As the name suggests, they're not connected by a wire, working similarly to Apple's AirPods, and come in a case which is also capable of charging the earbuds. Much like that headset, they offer a magnetic lock for keeping the earphones wrapped around your neck when you're not using them, and this mechanism can be used to end a call or pause music playback.
