HMD Global has stopped all the rumours about Nokia 7 Plus by revealing the device officially at MWC 2018. Nokia 7 Plus is the first smartphone to have the 18:9 aspect ratio Full HD+ display after the relaunch of the Nokia brand by HMD Global. Nokia 7 Plus packed a 6 inches full HD+ IPS LCD panel with a very premium design and build quality. HMD Global has used the materials like glass(in front), 6,000 series aluminium, copper edges, coated with ceramic paint to give the phone an absolute premium look and feels. The software update is one of the most discussed topics of the Android smartphone. There are many brands who are barely providing any Android upgrades to their phones luckily HMD Global is not one of them, it’s really great to see that the company is maintaining the dignity of the brand name “Nokia” by making such a beautifully designed and premium build phones.
HMD Global is providing regular software upgrades to their smartphones. Nokia phones are among the Android devices that received the fastest software and security updates lately. But Nokia 7 Plus will get the Android updates even faster because HMD Global has joined the Goole’s Android One program that means Nokia 7 Plus will receive all Android updates on priority and it will be bloatware free and a phone with pure Android. Nokia 7 the predecessor of Nokia 7 Plus has a 16 MP single rear camera but HMD Global has made the prime upgrade in the camera of Nokia 7 Plus by adding a dual rear camera. Unlike its predecessor, Nokia 7 Plus has a dual rear camera a 12 MP standard and a 13 MP telephoto sensor whereas the front-facing selfie camera has a 16-megapixel sensor.
