Nokia 7.1 Design

Nokia 7.1 looks a lot like the Nokia 6.1 Plus mainly due to the 5.84-inch LCD at the front. It's a 1080x2280px screen with a notch cut into it, resulting in a 19:9 aspect ratio.They call it PureDisplay and it supports HDR 10 natively and that it can even apply upscale to HDR-like quality any SD video in real-time (the benefits of this remain to be tested).The display has high contrast (1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio), especially for an LCD, which means that blacks are deep and colors are punchy. Nokia 7.1 has glass on the front and back with aluminum in the middle. But the build here is much more refined. Both glass panels have a 2.5D curvature so that the phone feels smooth in hand. The front is covered by Gorilla Glass 3.
The aluminum frame is cut out from a solid piece of 6000-series aluminum. Nokia likens it to a die-cast design. The edges of the frame have been beveled for comfort, and a coat of accent paint has been applied to them afterward (copper on the Steel model and Light Blue on the Midnight Blue one).The volume and power buttons are on the right of the phone, and there's a single speaker on the bottom.

Nokia 7.1 Performance & Software

Nokia 7.1 is the latest addition to Nokia's line of Android One devices. So this means that Nokia 7.1 will get Android 9 pie as next month, and will receive platform updates for up to two years and security updates for three.Android One also ensures prompt updates and no excessive bloatware.We tested Nokia 7.1 with Android 8.1 Oreo and found enough zippi for the flagship. This is what you get with a combination of Snapdragon 636 and 4GB RAM (we would expect that the 3 GB model will be in the form of snap, although maybe a bit slow in Task Management).

Nokia 7.1 Camera

The rear-mounted dual camera consists of a 12MP main snapper with a bright f/1.8 lens and large 1.28µm pixels mated to a secondary 5MP f/2.4 1.12µm depth sensing camera that enables Live Bokeh (or portrait mode in simple terms).the selfie side things sit a bit differently. The Nokia 7.1 has an 8MP f/2.0 shooter that's up from the 5MP of the Nokia 7 but down from the 16MP f/2.0 front camera of the Nokia X6.
The Nokia 7.1 selfie camera's party trick is its 84-degree wide angle field of view. The selfie snapper can also produce portrait selfies.Nokia has equipped the 7.1 with its full range of camera options, including Pro mode, the new Live Bokeh mode, which allows the adjustment of background blur in real time, and of course Bothies.

The Nokia 7.1 can capture bothies - meaning it can shoot from its front and rear cameras simultaneously - in both video and stills. It can even live-stream bothies.As for video recording, this phone would only record video up to 1080p@30fps. At least, the videos benefit from EIS as stabilization and 360-degree spatial audio (formerly known as Nokia Ozo).
