The Nokia Series
A few years ago, the most popular smartphones in the world were Nokia devices and a few years later, they almost went extinct.
This could be attributed to so many reasons which include their focus on developing mostly feature phones running on the Java OS and Lumia phones on the Windows OS.
When this popular brand decided to use the not so popular and generally accepted mobile Windows OS for their smartphones, this came with a price that led to their set back.
Now, the new Nokia series work with the Android OS, a sooner step Nokia should have taken with their first smartphone given the flexibility of the OS over the Windows OS.
Also, unlike smartphone manufacturers like Apple, Samsung and even Google that release device whose namings are in an increasing order format, the reverse is the case with Nokia.
As usual, they're always trying to be unique!
First came the trio Nokia 3, 5 and 6, later on, the Nokia 8 and now, the Nokia 7 and Nokia 2 as a duo.
Despite these random releases, one can be said to be better and more expensive than the other judging from its naming number.
Equally, as one moves serially from one device to the next, their specs get better.
That being the case, the Nokia 7 is next highest speced in the series and the Nokia 7 price is higher than the Nokia 6 but lesser than the Nokia 8.
The Nokia 7
The Nokia 7 was first launched in March 2017 in an event in China, and then later in Delhi, India coming shortly after the release of the Nokia 8.
It is the fifth smartphone from Nokia in 2017, the sixth being the Nokia 2.
The specs of this midrange device have been said to be comparable to those of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017).
The most spectacular feature of the Nokia 7 tagged 'bothie' camera, is its ability to capture images with its rear and front camera at the same time.
Other Nokia 7 specs that have given it an advantage in competition with other midrange devices are given below.
