When HMD Global launched the Android smartphones at MWC 2017, the company had promised that it will provide timely security updates, and two major software updates. Unlike Qualcomm which helps simplify a firmware update for phones that rely on their chipset, MediaTek never offered any help at all hence explaining why the update arrived on the Nokia 3 8 months after Oreo made its debut.

As for camera optics, the 7 Plus comes with a dual camera setup featuring a 12 MP camera sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 13 MP telephoto camera sensor with a f/2.6 aperture for 2x optical zoom.

Over 60% faster than its predecessor, it now offers enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, a more compact screen-to-body ratio, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo.

Display: 5.5-inch (2560×1440 pixels) pOLED display, sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, 700 nits brightness. You can click goofy selfies as well with the 5 MP Front Camera. The Sirocco is fuelled by a 3260mAh battery. The front-facing unit gets a downgrade with a 5 MP unit as opposed to the 13 MP PDAF unit on the older Nokia 8.
