Also, like it or not, there's a notch display.

Another thing that the Nokia 7.1 brings to the table is that it will provide the user with timely software and security updates.

It has a Snapdragon 636 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. In the US, you'll get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage while some markets will get a cheaper model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. This is a very nice-looking device with some decent specs as well. That's not all, you'll be able to enjoy higher contrast (1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) even with standard content, as the smartphone is able to convert normal videos to HDR ones real-time.

The first thing that stands out with the Nokia 7.1 is its attractive design and materials. The rear camera system comprises of a 12MP main sensor with an f 1.8 lens and 1.28um sized pixels and a 5MP secondary one with an f 2.4 aperture lens and 1.12um sized pixels. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel (f/2.2) AI-enhanced camera for selfies and video calls, with support for "3D Personas" (Nokia's take on Animojis).

There's also a Pro Camera Mode that gives you deeper control over the camera's white balance, ISO, focus and shutter speed, and there are AI enhancements accompanying the front-facing camera that allow for 3D personas, masks and filters. There was no global model of the Nokia 7 but then HMD has chose to launch the Nokia 7.1 globally.

How much does the Nokia 7.1 cost? This is the same internal setup as the Moto Z3 Play and Asus ZenFone 5 so, if either of those devices is any indication as to how well the 7.1 will perform come launch, this should be a rather speedy phone indeed.

They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man'. They are not winning games and they want to be - it is Manchester United .

Unfortunately, there's a mono speaker below alongside the USB Type-C port. However as usual with such buds, the pocketable charging case is also a battery pack, topping up the earbuds when you don't need them, for around 16 hours more listening time in total. On the bright side, quick charging support is part of the package, with HMD claiming you can recharge your battery to 50-percent of its capacity within half an hour.

The phone, like most of the other phones in the Nokia smartphone lineup, is in Google's Android One program, which guarantees it'll keep getting OS updates for two years. What that means is that consumers will receive a handset with Android 8.1 Oreo that will be upgraded to Android 9 Pie shortly following its release (in November, to be exact) and will also receive an Android 10 Q upgrade by early 2020.

Nokia fans, where you at?

Yes, it's coming to the U.S.

The Nokia 7.1 will be available for pre-order in Europe from October 5, and will begin shipping to other markets from next week. HMD says that the global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB variant and €349 for the 4GB/64GB variant. In the US, the base model, which features 3GB RAM along with 32GB of storage will cost $349, while the European Union version will get it for €319.
