#Nokia 7 coming this week with ZEISS optics?! *UPDATED*

Camera with ZEISS branding teased by HMD China

UPDATE: Nokia 7 officially announced.

Official: This is #Nokia 7


Original article

 

After VTechgraphy found an interesting teaser of HMD’s upcoming event in China that in a clever way indicated about a potential launch of Nokia 7, Finnish Soumimobiili.fi spotted a new teaser on Nokia’s exclusive TMall online store. In a split of a second, when the homepage of Nokia’s store loads, a camera module with ZEISS branding and dual-flash pops up and disappears. The appeared camera is not the one found on Nokia 8, and it’s not a “dual camera” so it cannot be from the rumored Nokia 9. The only logical explanation – Nokia 7.

At the same time, the well-known source from Baidu Nokibar’s forums, that published sketches and leaked photos of HMD’s devices before, that turned out legit, published a sketch of the Nokia 7 with some rumored specifications. He says that he is not sure about the fingerprint sensor location on the 7, where he puts it on the back. About the specifications, he mentions: 5.2-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 630 and ZEISS optics.

Previous rumors suggest that the 7 could come in 3 memory configurations: 3GB+32GB, 4GB+32GB and 4GB RAM + 64GB of internal storage. Other features allegedly include “bothie”/Dual-Sight option, and maybe OZO Audio, based on the previous teaser with Nokia OZO VR camera in the background.

HMD’s China event will start at 10am local time on the 19th October, and there we could see the new Nokia 7, and probably Nokia 8 for the Chinese market. Maybe HMD will surprise with even more.

What do you think? Does the 7 look good on the sketch? Tell us down below. πŸ™‚

    WTF fingerprint put on the back ? Why ?

    • Because that is much more easier/natural way to reach. πŸ™‚

      • Julian

        Lol, it’s completely unreachable if it’s laying on the table. Heck, even in my hands it seems I’d probably not be able to reach it without readjusting.

        • Double tap to wake up solves partially that problem…

          • But you need to key in the PIN/pattern and waste some battery on keeping the touch sensors running.

          • Sure, that’s why I said partially. You could remove the lock, though, but then what’s the point of a fingerprint sensor.

  • Stinger

    This is GREAT news! I really think now that they will introduce the 7. That single Zeiss camera says it all. I’m betting that the 7 will be their best-seller.
    Great job Nokiamob! Great, great job.

    • Viccky Maurya

      Even I have similar kind of feeling that Nokia 7 will be the best seller…. πŸ˜€ Lets see…

  • bong Labador

    Great job nokia i hope this nokia 7 has better ,louder and bigger loudspeaker with OZO audio

  • Viccky Maurya

    Looking forward to Nokia 7….

  • The amount of space available in front.. Fingerprint Sensor in back doesn’t make much sense.

    Lack of Dual Lens might make some people off

    Feels like HMD is all about 3000Mah battery.

    To me Nokia 6 looks the best of all phones launched yet but let’s wait how 7 ends up looking

    • Muerte

      Well, in my opinion a proper “single camera” with excellent lenses and optics is better than mediocre dual camera.

      Hopefully HMD has invested a bit in the sensor and the optics, in order to improve the low-light photography as did some Lumia phones in the past, not to mention 808 and other beasts.

      For me the cameras in the new Nokia-lineup have been…well industry standard, nothing spectacular so far. I know they can do better.

      • I was just saying it in the sense of like it might be turn off for a few.

        Surely A Single lens camera “If Great” is much better than mediocre dual Lens.
        For Example :- Pixel 2 kills it with single lens.

        But i doubt it’ll be any better than Nokia 8
        It depends like maybe Nokia 7 in its price range(Whatever that’ll be) will be the best.

  • WOW πŸ™‚

  • Nokia 5 shares the design with Nokia 8.
    It seems like Nokia 7 shares the design with Nokia 9. πŸ™‚
    Premium looking phones at all price points. πŸ™‚
    Only disappointment imo is the placement of fingerprint scanner. The bottom bezel could have been used in a better way. πŸ™‚

    • Viccky Maurya

      Absolutely…. And this should come with Android 8.0 out of box.

      • DK

        Can we expect Nokia 2 also???

        • Don’t think so, but who knows. Google said Android Ho wild one ready early 2018, and the 2 will probably run on it.

    • Stinger

      The fingerprint scanner placement doesn’t really bother me. If it’s too hard to reach I’ll just stick to using a pin or pattern to unlock.

  • d@__@b

    on-screen buttons > physical/capacitive

    • Romandi

      Tried both i think both have their period and cons

  • Lawrence Jerome Braganza

    I believe there will two launches, one nokia 8 variant with more memory and ram and the other will be nokia 7.

    I strongly doubt bothie and ozo audio for nokia 7 though. I am not a great fan of finger print sensor at the back, hope in reality its not.

  • marty farrell

    If the 7 is not out soon I am aboard the Pixel2 express for the next two years. I have waited too long…wanted a pure strong Android.

    Nokia/HMD…come on now…

    • The 7 will be below the Pixel’s price point. Maybe the 8 would be a better alternative to Pixel. If you’re from US, then it’s tricky because of availability.

      • marty farrell

        HMD has focused on the rest of the world. Here in the US is a massive market for a superior mid-range pure Android.

        Motorola has been releasing multiple phones blocking HMD’s sales, lower price points, better coverage and better specs.

        HMD can beat them in the mid-range…I maintain…again…that the Nokia brand can dominate that range in the US…perhaps the world.

        We shall see soon.
