HMD Global event: How to watch Nokia 7 Plus unveiling from anywhere

HMD Global has finally launched the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 6 (2018) in India, nearly a month after they were officially unveiled during MWC 2018. The Nokia 7 Plus pre-booking starts on April 20 and the sale starts on April 30 at a price of Rs 25,999. It includes 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256GB via microSD card). Protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass, the Nokia 6 comes with a 16-megapixel camera.

The Nokia 6 (2018) sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) IPS display covered with Gorilla Glass 5 for protection against scratches.

The Nokia 7 Plus, is the plus-sized variant of the standard Nokia 7 model which was announced previous year. We will continue to keep track of the developments surrounding the launch of new Nokia smartphones.

Finnish upstart company, HMD Global today announced the next iteration of Nokia smartphones in the Indian market.

It will be available starting April at a global average retail price of 749 euros. The latter is expected to come out at an event on April 4 alongside the Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus, and Nokia 8110 4G. There is an 8 MP frontal sensor which comes with f/2.0 aperture.

Nokia 8 Sirocco is packed with impressive specifications and features, including a stainless steel and glass body, edge-to-edge pOLED 2K 5.5-inch dual curved display, Nokia Spatial audio, Zeiss-branded dual camera lenses (13MP+12MP) with 2x optical zoom, Android Oreo, and a Snapdragon 835 processor. It receives power from 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support.

The Nokia 6 2018 is cast from a single slab of 6000series Aluminum giving the phone unbelievable strength, making it one if, if not, the strongest smartphones worldwide. On the camera front, there is a 16-megapixel rear shooter with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, dual LED dual-tone flash, and can shoot videos in 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second.

Nokia 7 Plus comes with enhanced "dual-sight", dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics. The overall design is quite interesting, especially the design of the phone's front side, as it's mostly white, but there's a black piece included above the display, in the upper-left corners, where the phone's sensors are located. Although HMD Global recently launched the Nokia 8 and the Nokia 8 Sirocco, they did not fare well on the expectation of an all-round flagship phone.

Nokia 7 plus has dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics, 12MP wide-angle primary camera and a secondary 13MP camera that delivers 2x optical zoom. "As the value market leader in feature phones, we understand the barriers and challenges people face when it comes to the step up to a smartphone which is why we've made our most accessible smartphone ever".

The company claims that the device can withstand up to 2 days with its 3800mAh battery pack. You'll get access to all of Go's optimisations and the whole suite of Go apps. The phone will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo OS out-of-the-box.

Its connectivity options include 4G, VoLTE, 3G, HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth and USB Type-C.
