Nokia 7.1, Nokia 7.1 Plus Specifications

While the Nokia 7.1 will likely be a more affordable device, the Nokia 7.1 Plus could be a step below flagship-grade, similar to what we saw with the Nokia 7 Plus. The more affordable device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, and will come with either 3GB RAM/32GB storage or 4GB RAM/64GB storage. On the other hand, the higher-end Nokia 7.1 Plus could come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, and up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Both phones are likely to have notched displays, and will be a part of the Android One program, coming with Android 8.1 Oreo. It’s quite possible that Nokia will surprise fans by announcing the devices with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box as well, given that it has already rolled out the latest software on the Nokia 7 Plus.
