The Nokia 7 Plus has been announced in China, and HMD actually decided to announce both 4GB and 6GB RAM variants in China, while only a 4GB RAM variant got announced in Europe. HMD had introduced the Nokia 7 Plus a couple of days ago at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, along with four other Nokia-branded smartphones. This is one of the company’s Android One phones, and it comes with 4GB of RAM, as already mentioned. A 4GB RAM variant of the Nokia 7 Plus which was announced in China is completely identical to the European model, while the 6GB RAM model comes with more RAM, that’s it.
Now, as the Nokia 7 Plus is an Android One handset, it comes with stock Android out of the box. Android 8.0 Oreo comes pre-installed on the Nokia 7 Plus, but HMD did say that Android 8.1 Oreo will hit the device in the near future. The Nokia 7 Plus is made out of metal, while its display sports rounded corners. All the physical keys sit on the right-hand side of this smartphone, while Nokia’s logo can be found both on its front and back sides. A fingerprint scanner is included on the back of the device, while above it you’ll notice a dual camera setup. This handset also sports somewhat thin bezels, and its spec sheet is nothing to scoff at. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 660 64-bit octa-core SoC, while it sports a 6-inch fullHD+ display. In addition to 4GB or 6GB of RAM, you’re also getting 64GB of expandable storage.
A 3,800mAh non-removable battery is included here, and you’re also getting fast charging. Two 12-megapixel snappers are included on the back of the Nokia 7 Plus, while a single 16-megapixel shooter sits on the phone’s front side. The device also offers two SIM card slots, and Bluetooth 5.0. If you’d like to expand this phone’s storage, you will have to utilize its second SIM card slot, which means that you can either use two nano SIMs here, or a nano SIM and a microSD card at the same time. The 4GB RAM variant of the Nokia 7 Plus is priced at 2,299 Yuan ($363) in China, while the 6GB RAM model costs 2,499 Yuan ($395). Both variants of the phone are already available for pre-order, while they will go on sale on March 7 via Tmall, Suning and JingDong Mall (JD.com). The two devices will also be available via a number of retail stores across China.
