Ever since HMD Global took over Nokia, the whole company went through a paradigm shift. Could they return to their former glory?

Before we review the Nokia 7 Plus let's recap their smartphone for the mid-range segment - the Nokia 7. It sports a bothie feature that enables you to capture images using both the primary and secondary camera. That way you can capture yourself and what is in front of you.

And here you go now with the rest of Nokia 7:

  • 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio or ~424 ppi density
  • IP54 certified - dust and splash resistant
  • Front/back glass & aluminum frame
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, Octa-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 508 graphics and 4GB/6GB RAM
  • 16MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus, Carl Zeiss optics and dual-LED (dual tone) flash

Now then, where does the Nokia 7 Plus fall into the picture? We all know Plus normally means a larger screen size and few others improved features.

Let’s take a closer look then at the Nokia 7 Plus as per below:

  • 6-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~402 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • IP54 certified - dust and splash resistant
  • Front glass & aluminium body
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Qualcomm MSM8956 Plus Snapdragon 660 chipset, Octa-core (4x2.2 GHz Kryo 260 & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 260) processor, Adreno 512 graphics and 4GB/6GB RAM
  • Dual 12MP + 13MP primary camera with dual pixel phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, Carl Zeiss optics and dual-LED dual-tone flash
  • 16MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256GB
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Non-removable Li-Ion battery with Fast battery charging
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • Q2 2018 expected release date

The first thing that you will notice is how huge the Nokia 7 Plus is with its 6-inch Full HD IPS screen display and Fullview technology. You can view more things on the screen now, which is just great. But do get yourself prepared to handle it with both hands and a pocket deep enough to store the smartphone.

The IP54 certification makes a return that makes the Nokia 7 Plus dust and splash resistant. With Gorilla Glass 3 protection providing the cover as well, this makes for a well-protected smartphone. With a metal body gracing the body, this makes for a really good look and feel device.

Under the hood of the Nokia 7 Plus will be in the mid-upper range with its Snapdragon 660 chipset, fast Kryo octa-core processor, Adreno 512 graphics and either 4GB or 6GB RAM to boot. This makes for one speedy phablet that is capable of running just about every app and game that are out on the market.

Perhaps the best part about the Nokia 7 Plus will be on its amazing camera setup. With a dual 12MP+13MP primary camera by Carl Zeiss optics, it is packed with a lot of amazing features and functions. Expect nothing but the best out of it. A similarly great 16MP selfie camera will make the package complete.

Storage-wise, the 64GB internal storage should be more than enough for casual users. It's expansion slot can easily take in up to a maximum of 256GB of additional space.

Finally, the latest Android Oreo 8.0 operating system will be available together with its release which is great. Great hardware gets the complement of the latest software, and this will work to its advantage.
