Nokia X7 (Nokia 7.1 Plus) officially presented. HMD Global has expanded its portfolio to include another mid-range model. The Nokia X7 is equipped with a Snapdragon 710 processor, a large PureDisplay screen with a large note and a dual camera with ZEISS optics. The price of Nokia X7 is very attractive.
As announced, HMD Global has introduced a new phone to its offer, which is the Nokia X7 . This model was created for China, but sooner or later it will go on international sales as Nokia 7.1 Plus . Let's check what the new Nokia can do.
PureDisplay and Snapdragon 710 screen
The Nokia X7 is equipped with a 6.18-inch PureDisplay IPS screen enclosed in a 154.8 x 75.76 x 7.97 mm housing, so it fills 82% of the front. The panel was made in IPS technology and has a ratio of 18.7: 9, Full HD + resolution (2246 × 1080) and a large notch in the upper part. Hidden in it, among others 20-megapixel selfie camera. The screen itself offers support for HDR content and the DCI-P3 color palette.The Nokia X7 got the Snapdragon 710 chip . This SoC is a combination of octa-core processor, in a rather unconventional 2 + 6 configuration (Kryo 360 clocked up to 2.2 GHz) and Adreno 616 graphics system. For this we also have 4 or 6 GB of RAM type LPPDDR4x and 64 or 128 GB of eMMC memory 5.1. This is a very strong unit for super somersaults , which in some tests can compete with Snapdragon 835.
Camera with OIS and full communication facilities
The issue of the main camera looks very interesting. On the back panel we have two eyelets . The main camera has 12 MP, f / 1.8 light and 1.4 μm pixels. The whole is based on a really good Sony Sony IMX363 sensor, which is supported by – attention, attention – optical image stabilization . What's more, the manufacturer used the ZEISS optics and added a 13-megapixel portrait camera. As for medium-sized photographic background is outstanding , but as you know, you could still use refined software.What else does Nokia X7 offer? The glass case with a metal frame has a 3500 mAh battery with fast charging, LTE cat modem. 6, dual band Wi-Fi ac (2.4 and 5 GHz), USB type C connector, Dual SIM, FM radio, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS modem or 3.5 mm jack connector. NFC was missing, but it will reach 99% of the global version, or Nokia 7.1 Plus. On the minus, I count Oreo for the start – in October 2018 Android Pie on board a new phone should be a duty.
The price is sensational!
The Nokia X7 so equipped was priced in China on:
- 4GB / 64GB – 1699 yuan (about PLN 910 net),
- 6GB / 128GB – 1999 yuan (about 1070 zlotys net).
These amounts make Nokia X7 a direct competitor in China for the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, which I think wins. It is a pity that in Poland we can not count on such a reasonable valuation, since we pay PLN 1499 for Nokia 7.1. I suspect that the starting price of around PLN 1699 is the most likely scenario.
