Nokia appears to be the late next company which will partner with Google, for an Android One phone. Evan Blass leaked a couple of press render photos of the Nokia 7+ Android One today on Twitter.
The phone has an 18:9 display, and if we were to guess the size, based on recent devices we’d say the Nokia 7+ possibly has a 5.99-inch screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. There are very minimal bezels, and no buttons on the front panel, though there is a Nokia branding on the top right edge, next to the selfie lens.
HMD Global’s Nokia phones already run on Stock Android and the updates for the devices have been fairly quick, so an Android One partnership could make it even better. And obviously the device should have the latest version of Android Oreo, out of the box.
Moving to the back panel, the Nokia 7 Plus has dual rear cameras with Carl Zeiss lenses, an LED Flash and a fingerprint scanner. Now, if a recent benchmark on Geekbench is to be believed, the Nokia 7+ will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, with 4GB of RAM.
The vertical mount of the cameras, and the rim of the fingerprint sensor have a metallic border. There is a Nokia branding and an Android One branding on the back panel. If you notice the top of the back panel, you can see a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left edge (your right).
Based on the date seen on the display in the render of Nokia 7+ Android One, that could be when the device may be announced. But since the Mobile World Congress 2018 starts on February 26th, we think that could be the actual launch date, but it may still be February 25th in some parts of the world depending on the timezone of the region.
