HMD’s Nokia 7 Plus, launched last February, is often touted by many as the best midrange handset in the market. It features a 6-inch Full HD+ polarised LCD panel in 18:9 aspect ratio fitted in an aluminum chassis. It also features a triple ZEISS lens, like the Nokia 8 and 8 Sirocco, and dual rear-facing camera. A pair of a 12MP regular sensor (f/1.75), and a 13MP telephoto (f/2.6) capable of Dual Sight (Bothie). It is also one of the first Nokia smartphones to include Nokia’s OZO Audio technology, and the Pro Camera.
The inside is no slouch either. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Android One branding may also have helped Nokia to take home the award. The Nokia 7 Plus is part of the renewed Android One-branded smartphones, which promises up to two years of OS updates. Currently, it is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo with pre-access to Android 9 Pie developers preview. HMD is yet to roll out an update for Android 9.0 Pie but should come soon as they didn’t miss a single update since. That sets it aside from other smartphones in its price category.
