Nokia 7 Features Glass Design, Mid-Range Specs, and Bothies

Nokia has unveiled its latest smartphone at an event in China. Called the Nokia 7, the device packs mid-range specifications into an aluminum-based Corning Gorilla Glass-covered body. It follows the announcements of the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and flagship 8.


In terms of specs, there isn’t much to rave about here. There’s a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD IPS display, a Snapdragon 630 processor, 64GB of storage, a 3,000mAh battery, USB-C, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and an IP54 certification for light water resistance. The most notable spec on this list is the RAM where Nokia gives customers the option of either 4 or 6GB in their device. Other than that, everything else is kind of bland. Well, other than the headphone jack.

For cameras, Nokia packs a 16MP Zeiss-branded sensor on the back and a 5MP selfie shooter. The lenses have a feature called “Bothie mode” which lets you take a photo using both the front and rear camera at the same time. LG’s been doing something similar with their devices for quite some time and I’ve found it a bit novel if gimmicky, so it should be interesting to see just how many users actually use it.

Nokia says when the 7 comes out, a software update to Android 8.0 Oreo will be just a short distance away. The device costs CNY 2,499 (around $377) for 4GB of RAM and CNY 2,699 (about $407) for 6GB. It’ll launch on October 24th in China.
