By February 15th, 2018 AT 9:13 AM

HMD Global is all set to unveil its smartphones for 2018 on February 25, going head-on-head with Samsung. Today, two of HMD’s upcoming phones, the Nokia 1 and the Nokia 7 Plus are leaked online. We already know that the Nokia 1 will be part of Google’s Android Go Program, but another surprise here is the Nokia 7 Plus, which is said to part of Android One program. Also, Evan Blass revealed few official renders of both the devices. The Nokia 1 reminds us an old-Nokia Asha phone, while the Nokia 7 Plus looks stunning with an 18:9 display on the front.


Nokia 1 Rumoured Specifications and Design

The Nokia 1 will come in various colour options like the good old Lumia phones. Blass leaked Black and Red colour variants of the Nokia 1 and the design is in-line with some of the Nokia phones launched back in 2010. It has rounded corners, and yes, it does look like the Nexus 4 from the front. The Nokia branding is at the top along with a front-facing camera and sensors. The chin of the phone doesn’t have anything, so maybe the phone will come with on-screen navigation keys. At the rear side, we have the rear camera and LED flash module, followed by the Nokia logo and a small speaker grill at the bottom.

The 3.5mm headphone jack in clearly visible at the top and the highlight of the phone will be Android Oreo (Go Edition) operating system. The Nokia 1 will be world’s first smartphone to boot the light operating system.


Nokia 7 Plus Rumoured Specifications and Design

Coming to the Nokia 7 Plus, this could possibly be the best looking phone from HMD Global till date. The Nokia 6 had the crown until now, but very soon, the Nokia 7 Plus will take it. And the massive thing here is the presence of Android One logo at the back, meaning the Nokia 7 Plus will be part of Google’s Android One program.

HMD Global is already doing an incredible job in terms of software updates, and this move makes sure that the phone will receive software updates faster than any other mid-range device. Expect the phone to come out with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.


Talking about the design, the Nokia 7 Plus will have an 18:9 display on the front, but the display size is unknown at the moment. Also, the display is slightly curved at the top and bottom corners, same as the Google Pixel 2 XL and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 series. The Nokia 7 Plus will have on-screen navigation keys. At the rear side, there are two cameras with Zeiss written between them. The dual-tone LED flash is placed right next to the camera module, and the fingerprint scanner is below the camera module. The 7 Plus will have a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack too.

The Nokia 7 Plus will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, and it will be interesting to see how HMD Global prices it. Both the phones will be launched on February 25 alongside the flagship Nokia 9 smartphone.

Made in China 🙁


Is your worry that they will have higher import duties, if they are made in China? Going by their previous record, Nokia is likely to manufacture/assemble the mobiles sold in India, in India itself.


HMD (Nokia) is impressive in every department imaginable. Can’t wait to see the Nokia 1 actually & what the Android Go platform brings to the table! Nokia is here to stay for a very long time. I wish other fine manufacturers like Motorola did the same ‘proactively’.
