After months of speculations, HMD Global Oy finally pulled the wraps off the much awaited Nokia 7 in Beijing.

As the name suggests, Nokia 7 is a low-end model of flagship Nokia 8, but the design, build quality and camera hardware are comparably better than its rivals in the mid-range segment.

Metal-clad Nokia 7 comes with 5.2-inch full HD LCD IPS screen having 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass shield. Inside, it comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core backed by Adreno 508 graphics engine, 4GB/6GB LPPDDR4 RAM, 64GB internal storage and a 3,000mAh battery.

Like Nokia 8, the new mid-range phone also boasts Bothie feature. It allows users to record videos and take images simultaneously from the front and the back via Dual-Sight mode.

Device owners can also live-stream front-back videos with split-screen on Facebook. We believe this feature will be a huge hit among social media-savvy millennials.

It also features OZO audio system, NFC (Near Field Communication) and advanced Bluetooth v5.0 technology that allows wireless connectivity with two different Bluetooth-enabled portable speakers and also data transfer speed of 2mbps.
