The 7.1 is the new Nokia smartphone. Makers HMD Global say it will offer users as one of the best screens ever seen on one of its devices..
The new Nokia 7.1 comes with what the firm calls PureDisply screen technology. This supports high dynamic range (HDR) and a high contrast ratio. All of which means details are clear in both dark and light colours.
As a comparison, the million-to-one contrast ratio is the same as the new iPhone XS and XS Max. But it is being used on a lower resolution display.
The display itself is a 5.84-inch full HD+ screen. The new Nokia smartphone also houses dual rear cameras with Zeiss Optics. This continues the phone firm’s partnership with the camera experts.
The 7.1 also runs on Google’s Android One operating system. This unmodified version of the OS is cleaner and comes with fewer pre-loaded apps.
Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer at HMD Global, the licensee for Nokia phones, said: “Almost two-thirds of videos around the world are viewed on mobile. (This) is why we’ve introduced our PureDisplay screen technology. To give everyone a premium viewing experience on a smartphone.
“The Nokia 7.1 even offers real-time SDR to HDR conversion, meaning you can experience HDR quality entertainment, event when your content is not.
“We believe the best camera is the one you carry with you, so we’ve designed a new imaging experience powered by Zeiss Optics, featuring rapid auto focus thanks to the two-phase detection technology to capture your own incredible HDR photography.
Since making a return to the mobile market last year with HMD there has been a wide range of new Nokia smartphone. Prices range from less than £100 to around £700. The firm has also introduced revamped versions of two of its classic mobile phones – the 3310 and the 8110.
Now there is another device to add to that line-up. The 7.1 will go on sale later this year.
