Lovingly referred to as the "Banana Phone" it's going to be available in two colours - a vibrant yellow for those of who love themselves a ripe phone, or black for those who liked prefer the whole "may still be okay for baking" aesthetic. 85-percent of the device is covered in glass, including 2.5D curved glass on the back, and its screen-to-body ratio is 80-percent, with the overall package being both compact (149.7 x 71.18 x 7.99mm, 160g) and easy to hold. You also get Nokia's trademark accents around the edges, camera lens and fingerprint sensor on the back. Both the models feature a microSD card slot, enabling you to further expand the phone's storage capacity up to 400GB. The USP of the device is its 5.84-inch screen with a Full HD+ (1080X2280 pixels) resolution and a notch on top. There's been a wave of rumours regarding a new Nokia device or multiple devices to come out in October; the brand has kept the lid on which model it could be ahead of their launch today in London. The Nokia 7.1 rocks a primary 12MP shooter on the rear side with f/1.8 aperture, 1.28um, PDAD, and it works in tandem with a 5MP depth sensor. Aside from the main camera, those are pretty average specs these days but you do get various photo modes including pro and bokeh. Artificial intelligence advancements allowed HMD to deliver 3D masks and face filters to the front-facing camera of the Nokia 7.1, with the manufacturer referring to those overlays as "personas".

"Almost two thirds of videos around the world are viewed on mobile, which is why we've introduced our PureDisplay screen technology, to give everyone a premium viewing experience on a smartphone", HMD Global chief producer officer Juho Sarvikas said about the new handset. HMD says the Nokia 7.1 can capture true-to-life HDR images.

Backed by a 3060mAh battery, the Nokia 7.1 supports native fast charging technology that is claimed to charge 50% of the device in 30 minutes of charging. During the event, Nokia confirmed the first wave of Android Pie updates should hit its phones this month. As for the software, the handset is running Android 8.1 Oreo, but since it belongs to the Android One lineup, there are several benefits to this.

While the new Nokia 7.1 has a 3.5mm headphone jack, HMD unveiled a couple of wireless headphones for those who want to go untethered.

LTE speed tests show the iPhone XS dominates the iPhone X

Yes, it's coming to the U.S.

Unlike the Nokia 7, the Nokia 7.1 will launch globally, with pre-orders starting tomorrow, October 5.

Inside the Nokia 7.1 is a similar affair to a lot of mid-range phones in 2018 with it sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset that performed acceptably inside the Asus Zenfone 5 when we tried it earlier this year.
