Last month, HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 Plus mid-range Android smartphone in the Indian market along with the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 6 (2018). The mid-range handset went on sale in India earlier this week, with Amazon India being the exclusive online retail partner. You can also purchase the Nokia 7 Plus from the company’s newly launched Nokia Shop online. In this post, we are going to take a look at the top 5 features of the Nokia 7 Plus that make it arguably the best Android smartphone available around the Rs.25,000 mark in the Indian market currently.
Nokia 7 Plus: Top 5 Features
- The top feature of the Nokia 7 Plus is undoubtedly the impressive 12MP + 13MP dual-camera system on the back of the smartphone. Both the 12MP primary and 13MP secondary sensors on the Nokia 7 Plus are paired with ZEISS optics and deliver 2x optical zoom along with impressive low-light performance. In terms of video, the mid-range smartphone can capture up to 4K resolution footage at 30 fps. The 16MP selfie camera on the front is mighty impressive as well, paired ZEISS optics.
- The second key feature of the Nokia 7 Plus is the large 6-inch Full HD+ resolution display. HMD has used an IPS LCD panel on the Nokia 7 Plus with a claimed static contrast ratio of 1500:1 and 1080 x 2160 resolution. Protecting the display is a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The glass on top is laminated and polarized as well. Unlike some of its key rivals, the Nokia 7 Plus display does not have a notch on the top, which can be considered to be an advantage if you hate the idea of notches on smartphone displays.
- Now let’s move on to the third most impressive feature of the Nokia 7 Plus, the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood. The Nokia 7 Plus is more powerful than almost all of its main rivals thanks to it being powered by a 14nm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz and an Adreno 512 GPU. So if performance is what you are looking for in your next smartphone, the Nokia 7 Plus certainly fits the bill.
- The fourth standout feature of the Nokia 7 Plus is its software. As announced by HMD Global at MWC 2018, the Nokia 7 Plus is an Android One smartphone. That means the Nokia 7 Plus will receive regular security updates as well as two years of OS upgrades. It ships with a limited number of pre-installed apps from the factory and offers unlimited high-quality photos storage with Google Photos.
- The fifth key feature of the Nokia 7 Plus is its battery life. Not only is the Nokia 7 Plus more powerful than all of its main rivals, it also packs a larger battery.

It comes with USB Type-C fast charging as well, which means you can expect the smartphone’s battery to be charged up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
