Nokia has surely managed to revive its smartphone market with many new devices. Nokia 7.1 Plus is one of those. Without a doubt, Nokia is one of those brands in India which people can trust on without thinking twice. This is because when India did not have the craze of Smartphones, the feature phones of Nokia would reign in the market. But are the making enough justice to their brand name in India with the new smartphones? Well, absolutely. The Nokia 7.1 Plus has to be one of the best phones in that price range. Immense amount of competition is faced by this phone but for many people this might just be the best buy. The full review of Nokia 7.1 Plus is given below.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus is basically a successor of the Nokia 7.1 and it is announced to be released in January 2019. Of course, this phone is going to be powered by the latest Android which is the 8.1 version. The design of the phone is absolutely amazing and the features are even better. 2.2 GigaHertz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor is what it contains inside of it. For people who don’t really understand these technical terms, it basically means that the phone has a very powerful Snapdragon processor and you would not face any problem while playing heavy games. If you are just planning to use the phone for daily purposes however, there is no chance you would be disappointed with the performance. Many memory intensive applications can run without lagging even a little bit, thanks to that 4GB RAM and Adreno 616 graphics processor. You get a 64GB storage which can be extended upto 400GB by using a micro SD card and that is something which is commendable. Many phones at this price range just give an opportunity to expand upto 256GB only but this phone has taken an upper hand.
A large 3500 mAH battery is what the phone will be powered by. The 20 megapixel front camera would capture some really good selfies and the rear setup basically has two cameras. One of them is 12 megapixel and the other is 13 megapixel. HDR imaging is also available which would enhance the snaps even more.
The 6.1 inch screen and the sharp display can attract many customers. It has an IPS LCD display with the screen resolution of 1080 x 2280 which is great for gaming as well as watching movies on your mobile phone.
The built quality of the phone also has to be amazing since this is made by Nokia. The Nokia 7.1 made a huge impact on the Indian market and many considered it as the best buy under the price of Rs 20000. The Nokia 7.1 Plus is a little better than Nokia 7.1 and it might also just start up the market at whatever price range it comes in. Of course, the price cannot be hiked too much from 20000 because not many features have been added or upgraded if you compare it to the Nokia 7.1.
It is expected that the price of the Nokia 7.1 plus will actually be lower than Nokia 7.1 and if this happens, the market will definitely be taken by storm. The expected price is around Rs 18000 and there are not many competitions at that exact price. The phones worth Rs 15000 and Rs 20000 might put in a competition and we cannot say anything about it until the phone is released and in the hands of common people.
The best part about the phone is that it is going to run on Android One, also known as stock Android. There are people who understand about user interfaces and they know that stock Android is the best UI one can have. It is easily customisable and along with that, it does not consume much of your RAM making your phone work much faster. If you compare the phone with Nokia 7.1 however, there are a few upgrades this has got. It comes with a relatively large display of 6.1 inch and one of the cameras at the rear have been upgraded to 13 megapixel. This might just be the game changer since most people these days look for good cameras in smartphones and you can trust Nokia on that. There has also been an upgrade on the battery since the Nokia 7.1 comes with a 3060 mAH battery and the Nokia 7.1 plus comes with a 3500 mAH battery. The chipset and the graphics processor has also been upgraded. The Nokia 7.1 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor while the Nokia 7.1 plus comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. On the other hand, the Nokia 7.1 comes with Adreno 509 graphic processor while the Nokia 7.1 Plus comes with Adreno 616 graphic processor. These upgrades are not very significant but the performance of the phone would definitely be at least a little better on the Nokia 7.1 Plus. The 20 megapixel front camera which is an upgrade from the 8 megapixel front camera is also something people would buy into.
Also, the phone is expected to come colours which include red and dark blue. Red and dark blue are probably the most wanted colours on a smartphone these days and to be honest, it is obvious because these two colours January look good on any design. The Nokia 7.1 plus would be a deal-breaker when it comes to design.
The notch at the front is the trend in smartphones these days and Nokia maintained it flawlessly. Many phones which have a notch in them do not look good for some reason. Either the notch is too wide or too big but the notch on Nokia 7.1 Plus is perfectly placed and has perfect dimensions.
Overall, it can already be said that the Nokia 7.1 plus will give tough competition to every single mobile phone around the range of Rs 18000, specifically because of its design, display and camera. We don’t yet know about the performance and it can only be just once the phone releases. The expectations are really high with the performance as well and there are not very many times when Nokia breaks our expectations. So if you are planning to buy a new phone on a new year, you should definitely consider this one.
