Nokia 7 Plus leak confirms presumed specifications
The forthcoming Nokia 7 Plus has leaked in the flesh for the first time, if a screenshot from a Chinese website is to be believed. The renders certainly align with the previously leaked specifications of the stock Android device, including its dual-rear Zeiss camera set up and rear fingerprint sensor. With no immediate sign of a Nokia 7 2018 edition in sight yet, the new plus-sized model brings with it some 2018-style mid-range smartphone technology.
Chief among the upgrades over last year’s Nokia 7 is the new, larger 6.0-inch 18:9 aspect ration LCD display thought to offer a 2160x1080 FHD+ resolution. The 7 Plus will also get Qualcomm’s next-generation mid-range smartphone silicon in the form of the Snapdragon 660, the successor to the reasonable, but occasionally sluggish, Snapdragon 630. RAM remains at 4 GB, while storage is quite generous at 64 GB.
When it launches, possibly around the time of Mobile World Congress late this month, it will be one among a minority of Android handsets running Android 8.0 Oreo. HMD, which owns the rights to Nokia branding on smartphones, has made a point of trying to keep fresh software updates to its devices flowing.
