The smartphone features aluminum body, Corning Gorilla Glass and has used 3D glass thermoforming technology for casting and features with rounded corners. However does it have capabilities to dethrone other smartphones in the same category, let’s check it out.

ReviewsToday: First Look of Nokia 7


10 Key Things to Know About Nokia 7: 

a) Advance Shooting: Smartphone packs an f/1.8 aperture lens and comes with 'bothie' camera mode, the feature also known as "Dual-Sight mode" which uses both front and rear cameras simultaneously. Phone can shoot 4K video with Nokia OZO audio technology that supports 360-degree recording.

b) Revamped Live Video Streaming: The phone offers live video streaming to Facebook and YouTube from the built-in camera. With the Nokia 7, users can go live on Facebook from within the camera app and use the "Dual-Sight mode."

c) Powerful Processor: Nokia 7 sports new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 clocked at 1.8GHz complemented by 4GB and 6GB RAM options.

d) Enhanced Display: The smartphone offers 5.2-inch IPS 2.5D display with screen resolution of 1080x1920 pixels and also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Phone is 141.2x71.4x7.9mm in overall dimensions.

Final Observation and Verdict:

Nokia smartphones were responsible for mobile revolution around the world. However with these new Android based phones, it is desperately trying to gain fair share of its lost legacy. We do not know when this phone will be launched in India, however with current pricing it is going to face a stiff competition with Xiaomi, Oppo and Samsung. We think, it is not the best of the pricing, and should have been in range of Rs. 15000 to Rs. 20,000. Additionally, we think battery is big turn-off since we would have expected something in range of 5100 mAh. We will have to watch how phone performs in China market before it is unleashed in other parts of the world.
