Nokia 7 Plus Smartphone Hands-On Review

Nokia 7 Plus Specs, Release Date, Price - Everything You Should Know

Little more than a year ago, a Finland-based HMD Global planned to resurrect the iconic Nokia brand. Since then HMD Global launched 11 flagship devices and sold more than 70 million of them. But right now we are talking about Nokia 7 Plus which is loaded with improved features i.e. 18:9 screen and dual camera.

However, it diminishes below the Nokia 8 and new Nokia 8 Sirocco which was launched together with the Nokia 7 Plus at MWC 2018. But a 6-inches FHD+ display is the main attraction here, dominating the front of the phone.

All in all, Nokia 7 Plus is well equipped with dazzling features and it looks to steal the hearts of all those users want to buy a big screen phone on a budget. Here’s everything you are hunting for, such as release date, prices, specifications and Nokia 7 review.

Nokia 7 Plus Release Date

The company has announced its latest Nokia 7 Plus at MWC 2018. Though the Nokia 7 Plus release date in Australia is May 2, 2018, but it’s available for pre-orders right now.

Nokia 7 Plus Price

The Nokia 7 Plus price in Australia will set you back around AU$549. The most interesting thing is that if you buy Nokia 7 Plus within its first month of release, you will get a gift (Google Home Mini) inside the box (the UK only). Whereas Australian audience will get a phone just.

Nokia 7 Plus Design and Display

 An 18:9 screen is the main attraction in Nokia 7 Plus along with bezel-less design. The overall frame of Nokia 7 Plus is machined from a single block of aluminum while the back panel has been coated with six layers of ceramic feels paint. The 7 Plus maintains its thickness at 8mm making it fairly a heavy phone. Sadly, we have not been given a weight yet.

A 6-inches Full HD+ IPS LCD display looks great. The display is crisp and bright and provides an excellent viewing experience when watching movies and playing games thanks to Nokia 7 Plus rumors. Despite it’s not quite as punchy as its AMOLED rivals.

Nokia 7 Plus Camera

The Nokia 7 Plus comes with a dual 12MP camera configuration. It sports a pair of Zeiss camera and the second camera is designed to give you 2x optical zoom. As compared to Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 Pro, it’s a lower specs camera, and we are doubtful that the zoom lens might not be as good in low-light as the main camera.

Interestingly, Nokia 7 Plus’ camera supports Nokia signature bothies as well as full pro features for those wanting a little more control. A 16MP front-facing camera, on the other hand, doesn’t look extremely competitive but features a low-lit shooting which could result in some good quality selfies.


The Nokia 7 Plus is backed by a good hardware at its price point. The phone is loaded with Snapdragon 660 which has performed better in benchmarks as compared to the Snapdragon 630. The Nokia 7 Plus also boasts a 4GB of RAM making it capable enough to handle your daily chore and delivers a smooth and fantastic user experience without showing a sign of lag.


There is a 64GB of onboard memory inside the Nokia 7 Plus along with a microSD card slot in case you want to expend a memory.

Other than that, HMD’s biggest performance is two-day battery life. The company is pretty confident in its estimates and while we cannot make it confirm, it’s not an unreasonable claim. A 3800mAh battery gives you an average of a one-and-half day of battery life on a single charge. Additionally, the 7 Plus is being supported by Quick-charging which means a full charge doesn’t take more than 95 minutes to fill up the phone from zero to 100%.

Final Words

A premium design, a big screen, a promise of exquisite battery life and the reasonable price tag makes Nokia 7 Plus an enticing proposition. We would be happy to see if it goes on sale sooner than April, so it can challenge Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra. Altogether, you can consider Nokia 7 Plus as your next flagship smartphone if you’re looking for a big screen which won’t break your bank.
