When HMD Global set out to revive Nokia's name in the mobile market, it quickly set its self apart not just in price but by also doing what very few OEMs did. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset aided by up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The display on this device offers 80% screen-to-body ratio and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The available colours for the Nokia 7.1 are Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel.
The Nokia 7.1 features a 3060mAh battery that can be charged via Type-C USB port and fortunately, the smartphone supports fast-charging that takes the battery life from 0-50 percent in 30 minutes.

The councillor for Stratford-Upon-Avon was reacting to Boris Johnson's conference speech, which she said was "full of substance". We have that from Theresa May, I think there are others who would struggle to provide that type of leadership", Gauke said.
HMD hasn't been overly eager to bring its Nokia-branded handsets to the United States but that changes with the Nokia 7.1, a solid mid-ranger that looks to punch above its weight.
Front and centre is the phone's 5.84in, 2,244 x 1,080 resolution IPS display, with a rather chunky bezel underneath and a narrow notch digging in to the top of the screen. It's comprised of a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) sensor, and a 5-megapixel (f/2.4) sensor, complete with ZEISS optics and dual-LED flash. From feature phones that cost peanuts to the flashy Nokia 8 Sirocco flagship, the firm is making itself comfortable in every nook and cranny of the smartphone space. The two variants are priced at €299 and €349 respectively. Hence, the company is promising HDR10 support and a unique SDR to HDR conversion technique using 16-Bit processing pipeline in the Nokia 7.1. Now the naming may confuse some people into believing this is a Nokia 7 Plus successor, but it's not. On the front, Nokia 7.1 has an 8MP front-facing snapper.
The 3,060mAh battery should provide upwards of a day of use, but we'll be sure to test this when we get our review sample.

They are claimed to have a playback time of 10 hours on a single charge, and come with a built-in vibration function that alerts the user of incoming calls and other notifications. Already, HMD rolled out the Pie update to its best smartphone till date- the Nokia 7 Plus, and it has changed the device drastically. Early buyers will begin receiving their shipments from October 28, whereas 285 Best Buy locations will also be stocking the Nokia 7.1 and allow prospective buyers to try it out from November 4.
The Nokia 7.1 was unveiled last night and packs a hefty punch considering its price starts at just €319 (£280).
