Nokia 7 Plus Release Date & Specification Rumours

The Nokia 7[1] was announced in China in October, but there’s still no word on a UK release. Meanwhile talk has turned to the possibility of a Nokia 7 Plus, which is rumoured to be announced later this year. The rumour stems from an APK file for the Nokia camera app[2], which alludes to several Nokia phones, including the previously unheard of Nokia 4[3] and Nokia 7 Plus.

The Nokia 7 Plus has since shown up on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 660 and 4GB of RAM, and press renders leaked via @evleaks [4](shown at the top of this page) allude to an 18:9 display, a dual-camera, a rear fingerprint scanner and the fact it runs Android One.

We would guess that the Nokia 7 Plus is a tweaked and larger version of the Nokia 7.

The standard Nokia 7 has the following core specification:

  • 5.2in full-HD (1920×1080, 423ppi) IPS display with Gorilla Glass
  • 7000-series aluminium chassis
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor
  • 64GB/128GB storage, microSD up to 128GB
  • 3000mAh battery
  • ZEISS Dual-Sight dual-camera, 16Mp/5Mp, 1.12um, f1.8, dual-tone flash
  • 5Mp front camera, 1.4um, f2.0, 84o FOV
  • Nokia OZO Audio
  • Android 7.0 Nougat with monthly security updates
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • USB-C
  • 141.2×71.45×7.92mm

When is the Nokia 7 Plus release date?

There is no information yet as to when Nokia will announce the Nokia 7 Plus.

We know it has big plans for MWC 2018 in February, but given that the Nokia 7 has not yet been announced for the UK we’d be surprised to see this smartphone launched outside of China.
