This means the viewing experience gets to the next level due to its high contrast ratio, greater clarity and enhanced colors across all of your content.

The Nokia 7.1’s rear depth sensing camera with two phase detection and ZEISS Optics coupled with the HDR display together provides an advanced imaging experience. With this combination on a smartphone, it helps you capture those rare moments you want to keep with you.

A glass sandwich with a 6000-series aluminum rim. It’s a sturdy phone with a decent weight to it. The notch design is still not everyone’s taste. There’s a white version called Gloss Steel with copper detailing.

Debatably, Nokia could have not made the phone quite so glossy if it hadn’t opted for glass. This does make the phone feel more premium than it actually is. The mobile will be showcasing 12MP and 5MP dual sensor rear cameras with the power of Zeiss optics. The front camera will have an 8MP shooter for those crisp selfies. However, it is not clear on whether we will a telephoto photo lens in the Dual rare cameras. The fingerprint sensor will be functionally at the rear side of the phone.

  1. 2 questions: 1. Why are there 2 ethernet ports? This is not a criticism, but I don’t get the use case. I assume there is a reason that they manufacture them this way, but the reason is escaping me.2. This device looks like a gaming console. 4 of the usb ports could easily be used as controllers. While the specs look good and appropriate for what it is, is moving to a gaming-centered device a future goal?
