It was inevitable judging by the previous devices launched will would see a new 7 series Nokia soon and true to form it happened today with the all new Nokia 7.1 which brings some new tech to the masses. No sign of the Nokia 9 just yet but we can all just wait and enjoy or ponder on the leaks that are going around right now and we will let the rest discuss that as we do not discuss or report on leaks.

As Juho pointed out in the announcement today we spend more time on our mobile phones than ever before but is this actually a good thing?? I have discussed this in my Nokia 8110 review recently so no point in going over it again. The Nokia 7 is for you if you are a huge media consumer and offers a new technology called PURE DISPLAY…Also for some which might not go down well the new device has a notch … Not a big deal…

The Nokia 7 also comes with a solid build just like the 7 Plus did and also sports ZEISS OPTICS and is also part of the Android One family which is endorsed by Google which means faster updates and support for years. The Nokia 7.1 comes in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel and is available in selected markets available from October in two variants – 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. The global average retail price will be 319 euro for the 3GB/32GB and 349euro for the 4GB/64GB.

Also announced today is some companion accessories which is great news and about time too.
