Notable leaker Evan Blass has revealed images of the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 1 in several tweets. The Nokia 7 Plus will be HMD Global’s first Android One device, and is expected to debut at MWC with the entry-level Nokia 1 at the end of this month. Android One devices run an unmodified version of Google’s mobile OS, meaning less bloatware and (hopefully) more frequent software updates.
The image of the Nokia 7 Plus shows a white device with copper highlights on the buttons, camera, and sides of the phone. The device has the Android One branding stamped on the back, and what looks to be a fingerprint scanner below the camera. (The second-generation Nokia 6 also has a fingerprint scanner on the back and a similar design to the 7 Plus.) We only know a few details about the 7 Plus so far, but it’s thought to run on a Snapdragon 660 processor, come with an 18:9 display, and feature dual rear Zeiss lens cameras. Other reports suggest the phone will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Blass also posted another image that shows the phone in a chocolate brown color with bronze accents.
As well as sharing pictures of the 7 Plus, Blass also posted photos of the Nokia 1, which has a much more compact and simpler design, suitable for its budget specs. The Nokia 1 has big bezels, comes in black and red, and will likely be priced for the lower end of the market. It looks to have a single lens rear camera and a front camera. It’ll reportedly run on Android Go, which is built for entry-level smartphones with 512MB to 1GB of memory.
These handsets should help HMD in its relaunch of the Nokia brand. The company’s Nokia phones reportedly outsold handsets from HTC, Sony, Google, Lenovo, and other Android devices over the recent holiday quarter.
