Around an hour ago, we talked about the press renders of Nokia 1 that surfaced online. These renders were leaked by popular leakster Evan Blass. However, Blass not only leaked renders of the Nokia 1, but, has also leaked the renders of Nokia 7+ Android One Edition. Let’s take a look at them.
These renders of the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition leaked by Blass give us our clearest look yet at the smartphone. The renders show off the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition with a tall screen that has an aspect ratio of 18:9, and hence, the bezels at the top and bottom are also smaller than the Nokia 7 that was launched last October in China.
Blass didn’t reveal any specifications of the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition, but, going by the name, it will come with a display that’s larger than the one (5.2-inch) found on Nokia 7. We expect it to be somewhere between 5.7 and 6-inches. Furthermore, this Nokia 7+ is a part of Android One program which means it will run stock version of Android Oreo. But again, all the Nokia smartphones launched in the past year either way run stock Android.
Having said that, the front of the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition looks a bit similar to Google’s Pixel 2 XL, whereas, the back of the phone has a design that’s similar to the Nokia 7. But, while the Nokia 7 came with a single camera at the back, the Nokia 7+ has dual rear camera with Zeiss optics. Both these cameras are located at the center of the smartphone in vertical orientation.
Below this dual camera setup is a fingerprint scanner and to its right is the flash module. With that being said, the Nokia 7+ had popped up on Geekbench late last month revealing its specifications. According to Geekbench, the Nokia 7+ comes with Snapdragon 660 SoC, 4 GB RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo. Hence, we are assuming that the Nokia 7+ that appeared on Geekbench and the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition that surfaced online are actually the same devices and not different ones, because like we already said, all the Nokia smartphones launched since last year either way run stock Android.
Lastly, the render of the Nokia 7+ Android One Edition that has surfaced online has the date set to February 25 on the lock screen, hence, we expect this smartphone to go official later this month at HMD Global’s MWC 2018 event that’s scheduled on the same date.
