Nokia 7.1 Plus has been making the rounds on the rumour mill a lot in the past few weeks, with several renders of the upcoming mid-range smartphone having already been outed by tipsters. We now have our first look at what could be the first live images of the Nokia 7.1 Plus or Nokia X7, as it might be called in the Chinese market. The live images show the Nokia 7.1 Plus in two colours – one of which is silver while the other has a brownish shade, not seen in any of the Nokia X series smartphones yet.
These alleged live images of the Nokia 7.1 Plus come to us via a Baidu user, as reported by NokiaPowerUser. At the back, the Nokia 7.1 Plus appears to have the traditional look that resembles the one on the recently launched Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus. It sports a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup and a small circular fingerprint sensor, alongside standard Nokia branding. There is no official confirmation on these leaks and readers should take it with a pinch of salt, as is the case with other unconfirmed leaks.
The report suggests that the Nokia 7.1 Plus/ Nokia X7 has been codenamed Phoenix internally, and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. HMD Global has scheduled a launch event in London for October 4, and the Nokia 7.1 Plus is touted to be the marquee product for the event. The long-rumoured Nokia 9 flagship model might make an appearance at the event too, but rumours say its launch has been delayed to next year.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus is also rumoured to sport a large 19:9 display with a full-HD 1080×2280 pixel resolution and a display notch up top. It will most likely come with Carl Zeiss optics, at least for the rear camera.
