Nokia’s low-end Nokia 1 and Nokia 7 Plus with reduced bezels have surfaced in a new leak.
The popular smartphone leaker Evan Blass has revealed images of the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 1 in several tweets. The Nokia 7 Plus could be HMD Global’s first Android One device and is expected to debut at MWC with the entry-level Nokia 1 at the end of this month. Nokia 7 Plus looks quite variable in terms of design than other Android-powered smartphones of Nokia, as the leak shows reduced bezels of the smartphone.
Although HMD is already expediting the move to provide super-fast Android updates, yet the devices featuring Android One will run an unmodified version of Google’s mobile OS, meaning less bloatware and even more frequent software updates.
The render of the Nokia 7 Plus shows a white device with copper highlights on the buttons, camera, and sides of the phone. The device has the Android One branding stamped on the back, and what looks to be a fingerprint scanner below the camera, similar to second generation Nokia 6. We only know a few details about the 7 Plus so far, but it’s thought to run on a Snapdragon 660 processor, come with an 18:9 display, and feature dual rear Zeiss lens cameras. Other reports suggest the phone will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Blass also posted another image that shows the phone in a chocolate brown color with bronze accents.
The leaker has also revealed an image of the Nokia 1, which has a much more compact and simpler design, suitable for its budget specs. The Nokia 1 has big bezels, comes in black and red, and will likely be priced for the lower end of the market. It looks to have a single lens rear camera and a front camera. Nokia 1 will run on Android Go, which is built for entry-level smartphones with 512MB to 1GB of memory.
HMD’s Nokia phones have already outsold handsets from HTC, Sony, Google, Lenovo, and other Android devices in the last quarter of 2017.
