Nokia 7.1 unveiled
- The Nokia 7.1 mid-range smartphone has been revealed with a starting price of €319 (approx Rs 27,000). European sales of the device begin immediately, but we have to wait for it to launch here in India.
- The phone has a 5.84-inch FHD+ notched display with 19:9 aspect ratio and HDR10 support. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 636 SoC with 3/4GB RAM options.
