Nokia 7 Plus Emerges Online with New Leaked Renders Ahead of MWC 2018

Nokia 7 Plus Leaked In Product Renders

First up at MWC was the Nokia 8 Sirocco, an upgraded version of the flagship we saw a year ago. And the price? We've yet to find out the price for the U.S., but in Europe, it will be available for €79 ($96). Anyway, let's find out about all the newly launched Nokia phones. Nokia was the brand that introduced millions of Indians with their first mobile phone. It includes an internal storage of 128GB. The device measures 133.6 x 67.78 x 9.5 mm and weighs 131 grams.

The next one is Nokia 1 with Android GO. The smartphone is built of single piece of dual diamond polished stainless steel, which the company claims is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminium.

The Nokia 7 Plus will be available in April for around $450. The camera department is manned by a dual camera lens sourced from Zeiss.

For photography, the smartphone features a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a 2-megapixel selfie camera with selfie flash. The device will run on latest Android 8.0 Oreo and is also part of Android One program.

Still, you'll benefit from the long battery life of yesteryear, with each charge promising an impressive 17 days of standby, or 48 hours of MP3 music playback. The smartphone will be priced at 399 Euro.

The next in line is Nokia 7 Plus.

The camera app on all the Nokia phones with Zeiss lenses will support Pro mode for tweaking with the settings.

The Nokia 7 Plus is the company's first 18:9 display smartphone as it has a 6-inch Full HD display. There are 64GB of onboard storage and a microSD card for storage expansion.

It comes with a dual camera setup at the back with a 12-megapixel wide-angle primary sensor with f/1.75 aperture. The smartphone houses a 3,800mAh battery and comes with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. The only change on the spec sheet is that the new camera now has Zeiss-branded optics. It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery.

As expected, HMD Global has announced the next-generation Nokia 6, dubbed as Nokia 6 2018, at a press event during Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. While the key specifications remain same as on the last year's Nokia 8, the new Nokia 8 Sirocco comes with a refreshed design.

While the display remains the same size and resolution, there's been a slight reduction in the bezels top and bottom as this phone gets a little shorter. The device itself will be offered in red and blue. It also supports 4G and Voice over LTE and comes with a revamped version of Snake. Phone is powered with MediaTek MT6737M processor, pairs with 1GB RAM and internal storage of 8GB.

Delivering powerful storytelling features including enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics and carefully tuned acoustics with Nokia spatial audio, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is an ultra-compact powerhouse, and our most attractive smartphone to date.
