Nokia 7 vs Nokia 7 Plus: Android One’s dream comes true
Nokia has returned to the Mobile World Congress and has done it in style, presenting five different phones. Fulfilling all expectations, the company finally unveiled the Nokia 7 Plus.
The Nokia 7 came to compete among all the mid-range market, betting on a competitive price, a power to match and a very acceptable camera. The only problem is that maybe it’s a little late. The company has had a whole year to try to make up for it. Have they achieved it?
The camera is once again the main feature
The first thing that attracts attention is a much more daring design. It’s striking that they have chosen to place an orange color to highlight both the camera, the fingerprint reader and the mark on the back.
It incorporates a dual-tone LED flash, and with the Nokia 7 Plus, we can record videos in 4K (2160p) at 30 frames per second. The front camera also takes an important leap, since it goes from 5 megapixels (16MP, aperture f / 2.0 and recording in FullHD).
As in the Nokia 7, the rear camera is once again one of the most important points of the device. The company claims to have improved the dual camera, with ZEISS optics, 12MP wide-angle and ultrasensitive.
In his presentation, Nokia has remarked that it offers great results both in low light conditions and in situations where there is too much brightness. The secondary camera is 13 megapixels and 2x optical zoom.
Most striking design
Nokia has taken an important step in designing the Nokia 7 to 7 Plus. The back is made of glass, and you can choose both white and black. In this way, the details in orange color that we mentioned earlier contrast a lot.
The screen goes from 5.2 to 6 inches, with a ratio of 18:9. That means that, the front space is well managed, being able to enjoy much more content without having to increase the frames.
If the Nokia 7 bet strong to earn a place in the mid-range, the Nokia 7 Plus wants to go one step further. Obviously, this improvement is also reflected in the price.
The Nokia 7 arrived on the market for 320 euros (140,000 naira), and now we will have to pay a little more to access its successor. The Nokia 7 Plus will be available at the beginning of April, with a sale price of about € 399 (excluding taxes).
Hello Android One
It has fulfilled another of the most important rumors about the Nokia 7 Plus: incorporate Android 8.0 Oreo and become the first Android One phone of the brand .
If the Nokia 7 came with Android Nougat, the company has shown that it takes seriously one of the most controversial issues of this operating system : the updates. Hopefully more manufacturers follow this example.
Nokia has decided to include a “clean” version of Android in the 7 Plus, ensuring that updates will be received more quickly . Android One is what this operating system should have been, dodging the customization layers of the manufacturers and allowing a purer experience.
The vast majority of the rumours have turned out to be true and we see how Nokia has managed to implement important changes in the successor of the Nokia 7. It is still a mid-range device, but with some features that already would have some high-end options.
