Shortly after the Nokia 7.1, HMD Global introduced another mid-range smartphone. The Nokia X7, which HMD Global has now presented for the Chinese market, is the successor of the Nokia 7 Plus and should be called Nokia 7.1 Plus at a possible European launch. It comes with a Notch and a thereby somewhat enlarged 6.18-inch display with FHD+ resolution.
The Nokia X7 is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. The memory is either 4GB or 6GB. Internal memory is 64GB, while the 6GB RAM version also supports 128GB. The memory can be expanded via a hybrid slot, which can also accommodate a second SIM card if required.
A dual camera from Zeiss can be found on the back. This works with an IMX363 sensor from Sony, which has a resolution of 12 MP. With 1.4 µm pixels and an f/1.8 aperture, it is said to be particularly fast. An optical image stabilizer is also used. The second sensor records at 13 MP and captures the depth information. The 20 MP front camera can use pixel binning to combine the information from several individual pixels to generate better images in the dark.
The rest of the furnishings are neat and tidy: Dual-Band WLAN(AC), Dual-SIM (hybrid slot), LTE (without band 7/20 in the import version), NFC (only in the EU version), USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS. A 3.5mm headphone jack has also not been forgotten. The battery has a large 3500mAh capacity and should provide a pretty decent battery life under Android 8.1. Also here Android One will probably be used again, so that at least 2 years of secured updates arrive. The dimensions of the smartphone are 75.8 x 154.8 x 7.97mm including a weight of 185g. Thus, despite the larger display, it still remains in a handy frame.
The Nokia X7 comes with Android 8.1, an update to Android 9 will follow. In China it can be pre-ordered now. It is offered there at prices of approximately 212 to 312 euros. As colors black, silver, red and blue are to the selection.
