The CEO of HMD Global – the company that took over the management of Nokia – had announced earlier this year that fans should expect something awesome at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) that is scheduled to take place this month. After that, we got a leak that the Nokia 7+ might be the first unit from HMD to bear the 18:9 aspect ratio.
We know that there would be a Nokia 7+, and thanks to Evan Blass, we now have a better view of the device.
The leak details the design of the unit, confirming it would come in colour options of white with orange details. That is not the interesting part though. What we find most interesting is the confirmation of a tall screen with the 18:9 aspect ratio and the presence of a fingerprint sensor on the back. The leak also shows off the power and volume buttons for this colour option, all rocking the orange details we mentioned.
There had been musings about the Nokia 7 being a device that would sell in China only. The same will not be the case for the Nokia 7+ which will not only sell globally but ship with Android One out of the box. For those who do not know what Android One is, it refers to the stock Android operating system from Google that has not been specially modified by an OEM.
The leak does not end with the information above. In continuance, we can now confirm that the device would come with a 6-inch display with FHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080. That will be on top of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 4GB of RAM and an internal storage space of 64GB. Likewise, there would be an assembly of a dual camera on the back, rated at 12MP and 13MP. It is no surprise that these would be branded by Zeiss.
For those who would not want the white, there is said to be a grey option with orange details too. All of these are, of course, speculations, until the company makes something official happen.
