nokia-7

Nokia 7 has become the latest Nokia smartphone to become official as the company unveiled its latest mid-range handset at an event in China. The launch had been anticipated since a Tmall teaser suggested the handset may carry the moniker ‘7’. With Nokia 7, buyers will get flagship-like features at roughly half the price of Nokia 8. Among the highlights of the handset is the 7000 series aluminium body and Corning Gorilla Glass on the back panel. In fact, the Nokia 7 rear panel uses 3D glass thermoforming technology for casting and features with rounded corners.

The latest addition to the Nokia’s Android smartphone portfolio packs an f/1.8 aperture lens and comes with ‘bothie’ camera mode, which made its debut on the flagship Nokia 8 (Review). The company is heavily marketing the feature as “Dual-Sight mode” which uses both front and rear cameras simultaneously. The handset also supports live video streaming to Facebook and YouTube from the built-in camera. With the Nokia 7, HMD Global claims users can go live on Facebook from within the camera app and use the “Dual-Sight mode.”
