The Nokia 7 is a new 5.2-inch mid-ranger manufactured by HMD Global that comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and 4 GB or 6 GB RAM, as well as 64 GB internal storage. It will launch exclusively in China next Tuesday.

A new Nokia handset is set to take off next week in China, and it looks like it will not be available anywhere else for a while. The Nokia 7 has been announced as a new "pocketable beauty" mid-range smartphone that features a compact design with a 7000 series aluminum chassis with diamond-cut beveled edges. The 7000 series aluminum alloys are more durable than the commonly used 6000 series and are often used in the aerospace industry.

The Nokia 7 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor under the hood and comes in two variants: one that features 4 GB RAM and another one with 6 GB RAM. The list of common features includes 64 GB internal storage, a 5.2-inch full HD LCD touchscreen, a 5 MP front camera, as well as a 16 MP main image shooter with f/1.8 aperture and dual-tone flash.

In addition to the above, the Nokia 7 also comes with the "Bothies" feature that is present on the Nokia 8 flagship. The traditional headphone jack is fortunately still present and, although this handset does not come with Android 8.0 out of the box, it looks like it will receive Oreo soon, and a future update to Android P is also in the cards.

The Chinese market will get the Nokia 7 in silver and black on October 24. The prices are around US$377 for the 4 GB version and roughly US$407 for the model with 6 GB RAM. There is no information about a global launch yet, but we expect this handset to get outside of China officially in a few months.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
