Today, the 19th of October 2017, HMD has officially launched Nokia 7 which is a mid-ranged Android Smartphone! HMD Global, tagged it as the “The Pocketable Beauty”
In the likes of Nokia phones, after the Nokia 8, the Nokia 7 is the second phone to feature the “Bothie” camera that allows you to capture using the front and back camera at the same time and then combining them into a single image.
HMD Global says that this feature uses technology from Zeiss, which is the company technology partner for cameras in its phones. But then, it might be fun for Snapchat and Instagram users!
Meanwhile, Nokia aren’t the first company to initiate that, as the Korean Giant has once done it on their Galaxy S4! But still, people aren’t that overwhelmed and are really curious why, Nokia should bring back that old culture!

HMD claimed that the smartphone is wrapped in 7000 series aluminium chassis with diamond cut bevelled edges. The pocketable beauty has a sleek glass finish including a 3D glass curvature back, so we are looking at a near-destructible phone!
Nokia 7 arrives with a 5.2-inch LCD 1080p screen. It also features a thermally formed, vacuum moulded Corning® Gorilla® Glass front and back to deliver a strong, pocketable smartphone and the phone is rated for IP54 durability, which means splash-proof but you won’t be able to dunk it in a bucketful of water.
It also features an integrated fingerprint sensor, positioned on the back of the phone, and will be available in Gloss Black and Matte White.

The Nokia 7 arrives with a 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie-shooter, and on the back, there is a 16-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture and a dual-tone flash.
