  • Nokia 7.1 Gloss Steel dual cameras

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

The 5.84-inch Full HD Plus (2280 x 1080) HDR10-ready display looks bright, colorful, and incredibly sharp.

Why it matters: Quality mid-range devices offering a solid user experience are more plentiful than ever. It can support HDR 10 and also convert SDR to HDR in real time.

HMD hasn't been overly eager to bring its Nokia-branded handsets to the United States but that changes with the Nokia 7.1, a solid mid-ranger that looks to punch above its weight. The phone will ship and hit store shelves on October 28.

The battery is a 3060mAh unit and since it supports fast charging over its USB-C port, it can get 50% of its charge in just 30 minutes. If you're in the market for an affordable Android device, the Nokia 7.1 is one to keep on your radar.

United States ends diplomatic visas for UN same-sex partners
The memo on the policy change, dated July 12, updates an earlier diplomatic note concerning the definition of family members. Former UN ambassador Samantha Power blasted the decision on Twitter, calling the move "needlessly cruel and bigoted".

While the Nokia 7.1's specifications may not give a Galaxy S9 or LG V40 ThinQ sleepless nights, on paper at least, HMD is counting on smarter camera tech to give the phone an edge. 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.

There is 64GB of inbuilt storage on the Nokia 6.1 Plus, expandable via microSD card (up to 400GB).

The camera comes with features like True Life HDR, Bokeh mode, Pro Camera mode, Livestream functionality, and Bothie. Still, it's a little odd to see an inclusion of an old-generation processor inside the Nokia 7.1.

The company also announced the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds which comes with a charging case. Pre-sale begins October 5th and will be available from Amazon, Best Buy, and BH Photo, with sales beginning November 4th.

While the phone will not ship with Android 9 Pie, HMD does talk about it in the press release and all of the features it will bring. The phone isn't coming to India for now and will be eyeing its buyers in the Europe first up with pricing set at 299 and 349 Euros. As for the software, the handset is running Android 8.1 Oreo, but since it belongs to the Android One lineup, there are several benefits to this. The base model of the handset that won't be sold in the US will start at €319 in Europe, whereas the more powerful one should feature a €349 price tag.
