Nokia 7+ Android One and Nokia 1 appear in leaked renders
Feb 16 2018
The Finnish company hasn't revealed anything officially except that it has scheduled a press event at the technology festival but purported renders of the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 1 have been leaked online ahead of its launch. Last year, HMD Global resurrected the iconic "Nokia" brand with the launch of Android-based smartphones, at MWC, and this year too the company is expected to unveil more than three devices. Belonging to the latter category is the Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 4, and Nokia 1. Design-wise, the Nokia 7+ will have an all-screen front with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Unfortunately, information on screen resolution hasn't been leaked yet, as pointed out by Phone Arena.
The Nokia 7 Plus is shown in white in the image with orange accents around the dual rear camera. Other likely specs include the Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage along with a MicroSD card slot.
It remains to be seen whether these models will be unveiled at MWC 2018 or whether Nokia will be holding off on launching them until the end of the year. The Nokia 6 ships with Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box, which can be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo after unboxing. But wait, there's more than just that, the new leaks also tell us what to expect on the software side of things. The Nokia 7+ will be an upgraded version of the China-exclusive Nokia 7. It's also believed that the upcoming smartphone will be supported by major US mobile carriers. In terms of specifications, Nokia 1 could come with an HD IPS display, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage.
As seen in the tweets, Nokia 1, which will be the budget offering by HMD, will come in Blue and Red colour variants. On the software side of things, the Nokia 1 will run Android Go Edition, Google's lightweight version of Android that's specifically created to run on devices with 512MB or 1GB of RAM. So you shouldn't be surprised that the Nokia 7 Plus is launching on a Sunday, plus this is not HMD Global's first launch on a weekend.
