Nokia 7 Plus : First Look and Impressions

HMD global has taken over the Nokia Company and since then it has had a great improvement on sales. The company has released phones and approximately sold 70 million units. HMD global has now launched the all new Nokia 7 Plus which is available for purchases on this April 2018. The device falls in the mid-range smartphone section and is expected to have a price tag of 25,999.


Nokia 7 plus has a thickness of 8mm and comes in two color variants: black and white. This smartphone is pretty well-designed and built by HMD Global. It looks premium in hands and curved edges at the top. I especially loved the white color variant; it surely is a treat for your eyes but runs the risk of getting dirty pretty soon.

The frame of Nokia 7 plus is made from a solid block of aluminum and back panel is coated with 6 layers of ceramic paint giving it a smooth texture.


Now moving to what’s inside, in the box we can see:
·         Protective cover,
·         Nokia USB-C Official charger,
·         charging/data cable,

·         SIM ejector tool
·         The product itself.


The device has 6 inch 18:9 IPS full HD+ display with corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection and has a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels.
