Design and Display

The Nokia 7.1 looks like everything a smartphone released in late 2018 and early 2019 would look like.

Measuring around 160g, the Nokia 7.1 has a decent build with front and back panels made with Gorilla Glass 3 with aluminum frame. The smartphone has a 5.84 notched display and a piece of bezel at the bottom bearing the Nokia Brand name. The discreet notch houses the selfie camera, the speaker and sensors.

At the back is a dual camera stack with an LED flash. The Android One and Nokia Logos are still visible. The top of the phone is home to a 3.5mm headphone jack, the left side contains the hybrid dual sim and micro SD slot while the right side houses the power button and volume buttons. At the base of the phone are the USB C charging port, and speaker.

The display panel on this smartphone is a 5.84 LCD panel with just about 80% screen to body ratio, 19:9 aspect ratio, and 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution.


The Nokia 7.1 offers a decent rear camera with the dual Zeiss tuned camera sensors. The primary sensor consists of a 12MP lens with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary depth sensor with a 5MP lens and f/2.4 aperture. There is a dual-LED flash assisting the rear camera.

The front camera lens consists if an 8MP lens with f/2.0 aperture and no LED flashlight. All lenses should perform well in bright light and low light environments.


The Nokia 7.1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with 8 cores and maximum speed clocked at 1.8GHz (4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4×1.6 GHz Kryo 260 Silver). The processor speed should handle games like Asphalt 8 and other games well.

The processor is assisted by either 3GB or 4GB of RAM space and 64GB of storage space. Storage can be expanded up to 400GB by using a micro SD card. multitasking should not pose a problem

Battery and Software

The Nokia 7.1 is bundled with a meager 3060mAh battery with good power management. On heavy usage though, the phone will only last about 7 and a half hours while average usage will see it stay up to 11 hours. On the bright side, there is a 15W fast charge adapter bundled with it.


Though the Nokia 7.1 was sold with Android 9 Pie, it now has Android 10 upgrades (released in December 2019) thanks to the Android One program. Monthly security updates are guaranteed and there is no bloatware on the phone.
