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.

The new Nokia will be available in two finishes - Gloss Midnight Blue and Gloss Steel, both of which feature "dual-anodised diamond-cut coloured edges", which we think is marketing speak for "shiny and metallic-looking".

The Nokia 7.1 has been officially unveiled at a launch event in London, promising improved Zeiss optics, a attractive viewing experience and a new generation of Nokia design. Called the Nokia 7.1, it has arrived as the first Nokia smartphone to utilise its PureDisplay technology. The display is HDR10-compliant, and has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Under the hood, the Nokia 7,1 is powered by a Snapdragon 635, and up to 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM.

There is 64GB of inbuilt storage on the Nokia 6.1 Plus, expandable via microSD card (up to 400GB). What that means is that consumers will receive a handset with Android 8.1 Oreo that will be upgraded to Android 9 Pie shortly following its release (in November, to be exact) and will also receive an Android 10 Q upgrade by early 2020.

It is an entirely different phone to the existing Nokia 7 Plus, which is still on sale.


The Nokia 6.1 Plus bears a dual rear camera setup, with a 16-megapixel primary sensor featuring an f/2.0 aperture and 1-micron pixels, while the secondary 5-megapixel monochrome sensor sports a f/2.4 aperture and 1.12-micron pixels.

Among the features, the 12 MP/5MP dual cameras promise fast and accurate autofocus and HDR photography even in low light, as well as studio-style "bokeh" shots, picture-in-picture capabilities and a mode that lets you use the front and back cameras simultaneously. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port.

The 3,060mAh battery should provide upwards of a day of use, but we'll be sure to test this when we get our review sample.

The Nokia 7.1 will open for preorders on October 5th in Europe and the United Kingdom, where it will be priced from £299. HMD says that the global average retail price will be €319 for the 3GB/32GB variant and €349 for the 4GB/64GB variant. 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). However, the company does have an event scheduled for October 11, where it may launch the 7.1 in the country.

These earphones come with a headband that sits comfortably around the user's neck.
