HMD Global on Tuesday launched a new premium smartphone, Nokia X7 aka Nokia 7.1 Plus. The phone rocks a 6.18-inch Full HD+ display on the front with an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 and PureDisplay support.

HMD has priced Nokia X7 very competitively starting at Yuan 1699 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB RAM internal storage variant. The Nokia X7 also has the PureDisplay technology which the company introduced with the Nokia 7.1; It's nothing but the display on the X7 supports HDR titles. The phone offers dual cameras on the rear side, and underneath, it has the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, which we saw on other smartphones such as the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and Vivo NEX. The other features of the display of the Nokia X7 are 86.5-percent screen space, 96-percent NTSC color gamut, DCI-P3 color gamut, HDR video playback, 1500:1 contrast ratio and 500nits of brightness. In terms of optics, the Nokia X7 will be offering 12MP + 13MP dual rear cameras and a 20MP single selfie camera. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset based on 10nm process, which makes it the most powerful Nokia mid-range smartphone yet. HMD has added a third slot allowing users to expand storage up to 400GB with a microSD card. The handset comes in three variants such as 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage + 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage + 6 GB RAM.

The Nokia X7 could be rebranded as Nokia 7.1 Plus when it launches globally, and also in India. A fingerprint scanner is available below the dual camera module.

'Dracula' show from 'Sherlock' duo coming to Netflix and BBC
Still, we haven't seen a substantive reimagining of the Count since Frances Ford Coppola helmed Bram Stoker's Dracula in 1992. The closest attempt was NBC's Dracula series, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, but it only lasted a single season.

It has a dual-rear camera setup which consists of 12-megapixel (IMX 363) and 13-megapixel sensors. Additionally, the cameras are backed by AI which will detect scenes and adjust the settings accordingly. The smartphone will be offered in Red, Silver, Midnight Black and Dark Black color options. The front camera is blessed with AI features like beauty mode, portrait mode and studio lights. It works over the USB-C port and speaking of wired ports, theres a 3.5mm headphone jack on board.

It's going on sale in China later this month, but it's likely to come to the global market also.
