The Nokia X7 was just launched, allowing HMD Global to target the more premium smartphone range. The Nokia X7 will eventually be called the Nokia 7.1 Plus when it is launched overseas, including India. When it does, it will offer an ideal smartphone solution to lots of buyers that don’t want to spend money on an expensive device. The Nokia X7 has all the workings of a premium phone, and these five features will highlight more about it. In short, if you’re looking for a price/performance handset, the Nokia X7 will most likely be your next purchase.
Large Display That Is Also HDR10-Capable
The Nokia X7 sports a large 6.18-inch IPS LCD screen, but that’s not the best part. This display is HDR-capable, just like the Nokia 7.1’s screen, and comes with 500 nits of peak brightness. It also covers the DCI-P3 color gamut, along with 96 percent coverage of the NTSC color space. While such highly specced screens are only found on more premium offerings, HMD Global has managed to bring all this to a highly affordable option. Considering how well HDR performs on this phone’s predecessor, we expect the experience to be just as good here. With deeper blacks, brighter whites, and accurate color reproduction, this screen will surely be a treat to stream content on.
Carl Zeiss Primary Camera With OIS Support
The Nokia X7 features a 12MP+13MP dual-camera, and while that’s a regular thing on most devices, it is a special kind of optics. Not only does it provide support for OIS, having the Carl Zeiss name is more than just a name for marketing. The Nokia X7 will be able to produce some stunning images and video with reduced camera shake. The phone also comes with an improved ISP, which will use the CPU and GPU to execute better color correction. As a result, the image and video result will look more refined when the content is saved in the storage.
High-Quality Audio With Support For APTX HD
The Nokia X7 comes with a single bottom-firing speaker that can throw out clear and loud noise at the same time. This will help to improve the media consumption experience for the user. The handset also offers support for APTX HD for high-quality audio over a supported Bluetooth headphone or speaker. Furthermore, you get a stereo capture feature, where you can record high-quality audio from all directions, that get loud and sound with a lot of clarity too. There is also a 3.5mm audio jack that comes with the Nokia X7.
Powerful Chipset and Memory Configuration
The smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 710 and up to 6GB RAM, with 128GB of eMMC onboard storage. With these specifications, you can ensure that the Nokia X7 will provide a fluid UI experience, both in regular use and during gaming. The Snapdragon 710 provides flagship features to the buyer, without the phone getting that expensive price. With 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, you can multitask to your heart’s content and store a lot of images, plus a lot of videos too. The Snapdragon 710 reduces the performance gap between the Snapdragon 845 and 660. This means that with the Nokia X7, you’ll be paying less to experience those advantages.
Android One Software Running Stock Android
The Nokia X7 is a part of the Android One family, so it will be running a stock UI with a fluid OS experience. This also means the phone will be running little to no bloatware. Another thing we want to add is the Nokia X7 is slated to receive Android 9 Pie update by the end of this year. As such, you can rest assured regarding software support as the phone is pretty much guaranteed to receive security patches as soon as Google releases them.
The Nokia X7 features a 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution, and a 20MP front-facing camera. It also sports a 3.5mm audio jack, 4K 30fps video recording support, and a 3500mAh battery. This battery supports 18-watt fast-charging, and there’s a fingerprint sensor mounted at the back. As for pricing, the base model costs 1,699 Yuan (4GB RAM + 64GB storage for approx. Rs. 18,062), while the top-tier version costs 2,499 Yuan (6GB RAM + 128GB storage for approx. Rs. 26,566).
