Nokia eyes to 'revitalize' brand in China

Nokia is definitely going all-in with the Android platform, having already released a handful of devices.

HMD Global, the brand behind the revival of Nokia-branded smartphones, has announced the launch of its fifth smartphone of the year, the Nokia 7. The phone also includes the Bothie feature, which allows you to take photos using both the front and rear camera simultaneously. It comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD display and a rear mounted fingerprint scanner/Home button.

Around back there's a 16MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, an f/1.8 aperture, and dual tone flash. Nokia has made 64GB as the standard storage option, but included a microSD slot just in case. The selfie lens gets its hands on 1.4um pixels, an aperture of f/2.0, and an 84-degree field-of-view. Neither company has said if the Nokia 7 is going to see the light of day outside of China, unfortunately.

Before the Nokia 7, there was the 8: HMD false a little timeline of technology, but this can be explained by the fact that, technically, the new Nokia, 7 is a notch below its predecessor.

Nokia, which used to be the No. 1 handset brand globally a decade ago, sold its smartphone business to Microsoft, which then sold the brand to HMD Global past year.
