Shanghai, China, 19 October 2017 – HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced Nokia 7, a compact, design-led smartphone wrapped in 7000 series aluminium chassis with diamond cut bevelled edges. The pocketable beauty has a sleek glass finish including a 3D glass curvature back – the perfect storytelling accessory for style-forward users.

Beautiful, pocketable and compact, the Nokia 7, powered by the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 630 Mobile Platform, is packed with creative tools including; a ZEISS imaging experience with Dual-Sight technology, highly sensitive cameras to capture crisp imagery even in low light conditions and Nokia OZO Audio to record immersive sound.

Harnessing both front and rear cameras simultaneously directly from your camera app, the Dual-Sight technology creates the “Bothie” - a split screen visual for both photos and videos that simultaneously delivers both sides of the story.

With a bright LCD display the result is an amazing visual experience suitable for all conditions. Paired with the latest clean, secure and up-to-date AndroidTM Nougat operating system (upgradeable to Android Oreo), Nokia 7 is the ultimate luxury accessory.

Design-led, style-forward most useful luxury accessory

The Nokia 7’s 7000 series aluminium chassis adds strength and beauty with diamond cut bevelled edges, combining premium materials with stylish design and the craftsmanship you would expect from a Nokia phone. It also features a thermally formed, vacuum moulded Corning® Gorilla® Glass front and back to deliver a strong, pocketable smartphone with a sleek silhouette.

Nokia 7 brings you a bigger experience without the bigger handset thanks to the tightly packaged 5.2” screen and 7.9mm slim body. It also features an integrated fingerprint sensor, positioned on the back of the phone, and will be available in Gloss Black and Matte White.

Capture, share and playback truly unique content

Nokia 7 is packed with features that help you unleash your creative side including a China debut collaboration with ZEISS on Android smartphones. Nokia 7 ensures you capture those all important moments in the best possible light. The wide angle primary camera captures 4K video recording at 30 fps, meaning moments can always be captured in stunning ultra-high definition. And thanks to Nokia OZO Audio, which captures sound in incredible detail with playback on any device or web service, you can enjoy high-fidelity surround sound and re-live all your memories.

Say ‘Hello’ to Bothie - be less Selfie, be more Bothie

There are two sides to every story and the Dual-Sight feature of Nokia 7 is designed to help you create and share the full picture. Both front and back cameras capture wide angles and have great low-light performance for outstanding images in varying conditions. The 16 MP rear camera is equipped with powerful ZEISS imaging technology to enhance your storytelling experience.

You can share immersive content across your social channels that your friends and followers will aspire to create themselves. Content creators can capture truly unique #Bothies through the Dual-Sight functionality without having to leave the camera app.

Both front and back cameras are highly sensitive and deliver outstanding images in all conditions – even low light – meaning your pictures capture more light than ever before with stunning colour and clarity.

Designed to perform

Nokia 7 harnesses the fast and power-efficient Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 630 Mobile Platform, which has been seamlessly integrated to maximise performance and battery life, enabling features like Dual-Sight, leaving you free to immerse yourself in everything from crystal clear videos to lag-free gaming for longer.

Nokia 7 delivers a clean Android experience, with no skins or UI layers, to match its effortlessly chic design. It features the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1 operating system (upgradable to Android Oreo in the future). Monthly security updates help keep your Nokia 7 secure.

“To some people, a smartphone is purely functional, to others it’s a vital luxury accessory, a cannot-live-without partner that reflects so much of their personal style and lifestyle. Nokia 7 is a design-led style-icon that doesn’t compromise on functionality. We’ve packed in our latest innovations, like Dual-Sight, which gave rise to the Bothie phenomenon – a culturally relevant feature that has captured the imaginations of content creators around the world. Unique capabilities and iconic style encapsulate Nokia 7.”
