Nokia 7 officially unveiled – good looking mid-ranger at a decent price

- Adrian Ungureanu

HMD Global sent invites a couple of days ago for an event in China and most of rumors suggested that Nokia 7 is going to be unveiled with this occasion. A smartphone that wasn’t mentioned in recent rumors at all and most of them were talking about Nokia 2 and Nokia 9.

But indeed, the smartphone unveiled was Nokia 7, a new mid-range phone with new and improved looks that comes at decent prices for its two variants. HMD Global went for glass panels on the front and back, a redesigned camera module, like the one we’ve seen the latest renders of the yet to be unveiled Nokia 9, metal frame and fairly decent specs which you can check bellow.
