On Wednesday, October 18, HMD Global took the wraps off the #Nokia 7 in China. This is likely to fill in a long-missing gap as far as Nokia smartphone lineup is concerned.

Multiple reports about the Nokia 7's specifications, features, price, and other details have surfaced online since the device's hotly anticipated launch. Let's take a gander at the shreds of information about the new Nokia smartphone that are currently doing rounds online.

Specifications, price, and other details

Housed in a glass and aluminum body, the Nokia 7 features a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display (1080p x 1920p). Under the hood, the device packs the Snapdragon 630 chipset, which is paired with an Adreno 508 GPU and an octa-core CPU.

The device is currently up for grabs in a couple of versions. One version bearing a price tag of ¥2,499 (about $377 USD) has 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, while the second version comes with 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage and is priced at ¥2,699 (about $407 USD).

The phone comes with a rear-mounted 16MP camera with a f/1.8 aperture, and a 5MP front shooter equipped with the Dual-Sight feature identical to the #Nokia 8. The feature enables users to take picture and videos using both the rear as well as the front camera at the same time. These one-of-a-kind dual-sided pictures and videos are dubbed as "Bothies." It remains to be seen whether or not that name will garner popularity among smartphone enthusiasts.

The Nokia 7 is backed by a robust 3000mAh battery. Unlike a slew of other popular handsets, the device will not get rid of the standard 3.5mm earphone jack.

While the handset will come running on Android Nougat, the Finnish manufacturer and marketer of Nokia-branded phones say that the device will soon be upgraded to Google's latest mobile OS, Android 8.0 Oreo.

Aside from the Nokia 7, a report from ValueWalk suggests HMD Global could debut two potential new Nokia smartphones with each bearing their own level of appeal.

Update version of Nokia 8

The popular handset maker was reportedly prepping to launch a radically overhauled version of the Nokia 8. The device recently received FCC (Federal Communications Commission) certification, which is mandatory for devices slated to hit the store shelves in the United States.

The updated iteration of the Nokia 8 will boast more RAM and internal storage. Previously surfaced reports indicated this device would hit the North American market. But, according to ValueWalk, it looks like HMD Global wants to launch the updated Nokia 8 in China before revealing it in North America.

A yet-to-be-revealed Nokia smartphone?

Aside from the handset’s updated version, HMD Global has been reportedly gearing up to launch an entirely new handset.

The company; however, does not have a reputation of keeping new phone launches under wraps.

It can be recalled that the Nokia 8 was spotted online months ahead of its official launch. Nevertheless, there's still a possibility that Nokia has an ace up its sleeve.
