Nokia has also future-proofed the device with a USB-C port that will charge up to 50% of the battery in half an hour.

Inside the Nokia 7.1 is a Snapdragon 636 processor, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of built-in storage, and a dual SIM slot that also lets you use one SIM and one microSD card slot.

Under the hood, you'll find a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which HMD says will offer enhanced performance while keeping power consumption down. The screen comes protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Depending on the area in Europe, the Nokia 7.1 will be available anywhere between 299 to 349 Pounds (approx Rs 28,000 to Rs 33,000).

The hint of copper trim around the edges provides a subtle beauty, and it really feels like the Nokia 7.1 has been created to accessorize with whichever outfit you're wearing. The base model features 32GB of internal storage, while the 4GB RAM variant features memory that has been bumped up to 64GB.

The Nokia 7.1 has been officially unveiled at a launch event in London, promising improved Zeiss optics, a lovely viewing experience and a new generation of Nokia design.

Nationwide Emergency Alert Test Set for Wednesday
The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is created to warn Americans in the event of a national emergency. They're working to make sure the system can support delivery of messages in more languages in the future.

The Nokia 7.1 will receive three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates, as guaranteed in the Android One programme.

"The Full HD+ 5.84" and 19:9 screen ratio display will automatically adjust brightness and contrast to ambient lighting conditions. This allows for the Bokeh mode to be activated with the Nokia 7.1, allowing the user to snap images with a background blur effect.

The global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB and €349 for the 4GB/64GB. The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel affair with an f/2.0 lens and a fixed focus, though it offers a wide field of capture amounting to 84 degrees, which should make it great for group selfies. A 3,060mAh battery with fast charging capability keeps the whole package alive. Not quite because right in the middle of its presentation, HMD laid out its timetable for rolling out Android 9 Pie. In terms of optics, the Nokia 7.1 sports 12MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5MP Monochrome sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

The True Wireless Earbuds offer ultimate portability. However, the specs are not as good as the Nokia 7 Plus, which launched in February of this year.

Available in Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel color options, the Nokia 7.1 will begin rolling out in select markets in October. It's got a respectable mid-range feature set with an aggressive price tag, and its aluminum frame should help to give the Nokia 7.1 a more premium feel. Already, HMD rolled out the Pie update to its best smartphone till date- the Nokia 7 Plus, and it has changed the device drastically.
