Nokia 7 Keynotes:
Nokia 7 is the first device made by HMD having the glass body, it’s front and rear is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3
It also has the 7000 series aluminum alloy frame.
HMD Global promised monthly android security updates to this device also. Though the device comes with android nougat out of the box it can be upgraded to android oreo.
Nokia OZO audio technology helps this device to capture every bit of the sound.
It also has the ZEISS optics with the 16MP sensor coupled with f/1.8 aperture. Though it is offering only single camera still ZEISS is a pretty heavy name behind Nokia. So on paper, we expect the camera to be a good one.
The Nokia 7 is featuring “Dual-sight” technology, with the camera being able to take “bothies” as marketed by HMD Global.
