In short: HMD Global's latest smartphone, the Nokia 7.1, is now available for pre-order. It is available at B&H Photo and will soon be available from Amazon – though it is not showing up at the time of writing this, it should be available at some point today. The Nokia 7.1 is going to cost $349, and will ship later this month.
Background: The Nokia 7.1 was announced yesterday, October 4, as the company's newest smartphone. Though it is definitely a mid-ranger. The Nokia 7.1 sports a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display, along with a Snapdragon 635 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is also a 3060mAh capacity battery included, which should keep the device running all-day long, especially with the Snapdragon 636 chipset inside. It is running stock Android, as you might expect from Nokia, this is an Android One smartphone. It is launching with Android 8.1 Oreo on-board, but HMD Global has noted that it will be releasing Android 9 Pie for the Nokia 7.1 by the end of November, so it will still be one of the first smartphones to get the Android Pie update. There is also a 12-megapixel camera on the back, along with a 8-megapixel sensor for depth information. These are using Carl Zeiss Optics, so you're going to get some really good pictures out of these cameras.
Impact: Over at B&H Photo, it is throwing in its own photography kit for smartphones and tablets, which is valued at $65, for free. This kit includes a small hand-held tripod, a smartphone mount, and a light that can be plugged into the headphone jack – good thing the Nokia 7.1 has a headphone jack – to get some great pictures from this smartphone. The Nokia 7.1 is again being priced at $349, and it will be available in Glossy Steel and Glossy Midnight Blue. You can pre-order the Nokia 7.1 from the links below, it will begin shipping on October 28.
