The new Nokia 7.1 comes to the United States of America, price starts at $349

Nokia 7.1 hands-on: A $350 success story

Built and designed by Finnish firm HMD Global these handsets are created to bundle high-end specs into an affordable, attractive package.

These two Bluetooth headphones will on sale alongside the Nokia 7.1, pre-orders start tomorrow.

HMD today has announced their latest Nokia branded smartphone which is the Nokia 7.1 and it has some juicy specs for a relatively "budget" smartphone.

And why shouldn't they? However, it unveiled the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia True Wireless Earbuds at the event.

Notch in the display? Dual-camera for blurred backgrounds in your portrait shots? The display is HDR10-compliant, and has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 3GB/32GB variant has been priced at 299 euros, whereas the 4GB/64GB variant has been priced at 349 euros.

Design Nokia smartphones are known for their attractive design. Nevertheless, the company never give it a miss when it comes to releasing a flagship (sort of) or even a budget Nokia phone in the USA market. It doesn't feel that premium.

Powering the phone is Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is clocked at 1.8GHz and works alongside 3GB of RAM. It's paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM, and 32GB/64GB of internal storage with support for microSD cards of up to 400GB.

City won 2-1 in Germany in the Champions League on Tuesday, with Silva grabbing the victor in the 87th minute. It wasn't the best of starts for Pep GUARDIOLA's City as they let in a goal in the first minute.

Democratic senator 'satisfied' with FBI investigation of Kavanaugh allegation
The White House noted that Kavanaugh wasn't arrested or charged and questioned the incident's relevance. Dianne Feinstein , D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the committee, agreed.

All standard connectivity options are included with the Nokia 7.1, ranging from 4G VoLTE to USB Type-C. 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. As the name suggests, they're not connected by a wire, working similarly to Apple's AirPods, and come in a case which is also capable of charging the earbuds.

HMD Global's latest smartphone is the Nokia 7.1. The smartphone will receive Android 9 Pie update next month.

Nokia is already rolling-out the major mobile OS update to other handsets in its line-up and promises the update is coming very soon to the Nokia 7.1 - but for a phone that's supposed to be so tightly linked with Google, it seems like a weird oversight.

HMD has also touted the camera capabilities of the new phone.

Best of all, the Nokia 7.1 runs Android One. Android 9 Pie includes features such as adaptive brightness, adaptive battery, refreshed user interface, app actions, Digital Wellbeing, app slices among others. And we're tempted to agree.

One of the highlights of the Nokia 7.1 smartphone is the presence of Carl Zeiss optics for the front and rear camera setup. It's said to bring a suite of AI-powered features to the phone. Unfortunately, we weren't able to vouch for this during our brief time with the device. The front has an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 AI-enhanced face unlock feature.
