After a comeback under the stewardship of HMD Global, Nokia is finally catching up to the latest smartphone trends. The highly rumoured Nokia 7 Plus, that is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona later this month will bring the brand up to date with the latest features including a taller, univisium display and dual cameras, according to leaked specifications.
Presentation slides unearthed by Nokia Power User, state that the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus will feature an aluminium body with a ceramic texture. There will be a vertically aligned dual-camera module at the back along with a fingerprint sensor. The camera module and the fingerprint sensor are of the different colour than the body, much like the Nokia 6 (2018) launched earlier this year.
The phone will supposedly sport a 6-inch FHD+ (2160x1080 pixels) display of 18:9 aspect ratio with Gorilla Glass on top. The Nokia 7 Plus is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which will be expandable using a microSD card.
At the back will be a dual-camera module by Carl Zeiss optics. It is likely that there will be a combination of a 12-megapixel and a 13-megapixel sensors with support for 2X optical zoom and Nokia’s proprietary “Bothie” feature that fire the rear and front cameras simultaneously to show both sides of the story. On the front, there could be a 16-megapixel shooter.
Apart from this, there will be a battery with support for Quick Charge, USB Type-C port and a fingerprint sensor on the back.
If the leaked specs are true, the Nokia 7 Plus will be quite an upgrade over its predecessor which had a 5.2-inch display, powered by an older Snapdragon 630 chipset coupled with 4/6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage along with sport a single 16-megapixel camera at the back.
HMD Global is also expected to launch its flagship Nokia 9 at MWC. Rumours state that the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and will sport a penta-lens camera setup at the back.
