As the tweet clearly shows, the short teaser alludes to a notched-smartphone that can make anything displayed on its screen look more vibrant and colorful. That s something Nokia 7.1 can definitely do, since the smartphone s defining feature is its HDR-compliant display. The smartphone can also convert SDR content to HDR in real-time, allowing for a richer and more-consistent viewing experience.

Talking about other features, Nokia 7.1 is largely identical (at least, in terms of hardware and design) to the smartphone that sits directly below it Nokia 6.1 Plus. Powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 636 SoC, the 7.1 comes with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage.

The aforementioned HDR display is a 5.84-inch FullHD+ notched panel, with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Like all other smartphones launched by HMD Global this year, the 7.1 is also Android One-certified, which means a bloat-free stock UI and faster updates.

For imaging, Nokia 7.1 has a dual-lens camera system at the back. It s comprised of a 12-megapixel unit and 5-megapixel unit. There s also an 8-megapixel unit up front for selfies and video calls. The smartphone has all modern connectivity options, and a 3,060mAh battery (with fast charging) rounds off the spec sheet.
