HMD Global might be getting ready to launch two new smartphones under its Nokia 7 smartphone lineup. Recently we saw two different front panel images, one with a notch and the other without one, both of them claiming to be the upcoming Nokia 7.1 Plus.
However a recent tweet by tipster Rolan Quandt, it looks like the notch-less variant might be the Nokia 7.1, the successor to the Nokia 7 Plus, which was launched earlier this. The notched variant might be the Nokia 7.1 Plus, though in China market it will likely continue with the Nokia X7 label.
According to the tweet, the company will be launching a new smartphone dubbed Nokia 7.1 in Blue and Steel colour options. It will come with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 7.1 according to Roland Quandt, will be priced at Euro 399 (approximately Rs 33,600). The company is expected to launch the device on October 4.
Nokia 7.1 (4/64GB) Blue or Steel, 399 Euro. No Plus in that name.
