Five Top Features: Nokia 7

HMD Global has just announced the Nokia 7, and it’s the company’s second smartphone to be advertised as a ‘bothie’ phone similar to the Nokia 8. Here are its five features you don’t want to miss.

A more premium design

The Nokia 7 comes with Corning Gorilla glass not only at the front but also on its back part. HMD Global calls this process a ‘3D Glass Thermoforming technology’, bringing smoother touch and feel when using the device. The phone has also undergone rigorous processes and sports good materials such as a 7000 series aluminum alloy for the metal frame with diamond cut edges. That’s all tucked under its 5.2-inch display.

ZEISS imaging technology

A 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera are equipped on the Nokia 7, and these both support Zeiss imaging technology for taking better photos. The Zeiss Certified Image Technology enables the front-rear cameras to shoot in a variety of scenarios with excellent dark shooting performance.

‘Bothie’ shooting mode

This is also the second smartphone to sport the ‘Bothie’ technology (dual shooting mode) next to the flagship Nokia 8. With the said mode, users can shoot both front and rear scenarios at the same time with just a simple tap of the shutter button.

OZO Audio

Nokia also takes pride in its OZO effort as this phone also sports the company’s proprietary spatial audio technology that enables the user to hear captured sounds on multimedia files just as how it was in real life.

Good specs tucked under a reasonable price point… in China

The Nokia 7 will be available in two different colors (Gloss Black and Matte White) and it sports decent specs for their prices with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chip on board, along with LTE Cat.6, NFC, IP54 splash resistance, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board with a scheduled update to the Oreo version. Two variants are available and the more affordable one bearing 4GB of RAM will be available for CNY2,499 or roughly Php19,400 when converted.

    Apparently, at leaste from what I’ve read, the 7 plus will be the intermediary between the 6.1 and 8 here in the Philippines.
    In the islands, with boardshorts and motorcycle travel I can’t help but see the smaller form factor, and IP54 rating of the 7, as trumping a higher price, unwieldy18:9 form factor of a long stick in shallow pockets, and even a 2x optical zoom of the 7 Plus. Not to mention these same issues plus the larger storage of the Nokia 7 over the Nokia 2018 at a minimally higher price.
    I can’t help but believe that most trades persons in the states would agree as well…or anyone that finds themselves in nature’s elements with any regularity. Seems the 7 would just hammer the mid range market to me.
    As it stands I may end up settling for the 6 2018 rather than end up with a monstrosity of a form factor that just isn’t convenient to carry or even view particularly…regardless of the current fad bandwagon oddity.
