HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced that the Nokia 7 plus smartphone, running on Android Oreo, is now available to buy from selected retail outlets for KES 46,000.00 from 24 April 2018.
A smartphone with striking design, the Nokia 7 plus combines innovative imaging capabilities and powerful performance for up to two days with one charge. With enhanced Dual-Sight, highly sensitive ZEISS optics and Pro Camera mode, the Nokia 7 plus captures images that are true to life, no matter the lighting. Selected by Google to join the Android One family, the Nokia 7 plus offers a pure, secure and up to date Android experience.
Flagship design and performance
The Nokia 7 plus smartphone stands out of the crowd with its unique ceramic-feel coating achieved through a 6-layer paint system that ensures improved call quality and signal as well as better grip. It brings a great tactile feel and is comfortable to hold while elegantly hiding antenna lines. Precision machined from a single block of 6000 series aluminium, the Nokia 7 plus comes with anodised edges, contrasting with the body to add a stylish two-tone touch.
Its gently curved back and slim edges give you a big-screen experience in a comfortable, neat package. The vivid 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display makes the Nokia 7 plus perfect for browsing, social media consumption, gaming and entertainment with more content in the same width as a traditional 5.5-inch display device. And with 4GB of RAM, it is fast enough to take on those of us always doing two things at once. The high-contrast polarised screen delivers an outstanding viewing experience even in the brightest of conditions, so you can enjoy your favourite content wherever you are.
To enable you to capture and enjoy more content for longer, the Nokia 7 plus is backed by the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660 Mobile Platform. It’s been optimised and integrated for maximum performance and battery life, even when you are broadcasting your #Bothie videos live on Facebook or YouTube. Optimised to extract every bit of juice from the already powerful 3800 mAh battery, the Nokia 7 plus delivers an amazing 2-day battery life.
True to life imaging
Combining innovative optical hardware and imaging algorithms, the Nokia 7 plus captures moments into photos that are true to life. Dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics combine an ultra-sensitive 12MP wide-angle primary camera for impressive performance in both low-light and extra bright conditions and a secondary 13MP sensor that delivers 2x optical zoom for the moments when you wish you were closer. The Nokia 7 plus boasts Pro Camera mode which lets you take pictures like a pro by giving you quick and easy manual control over advanced camera settings like white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed and exposure. You can see the impact of your adjustments in real time before you snap to achieve your perfect photo with just one take and no need for filters.
Introducing, for the first time on a Nokia smartphone, artificial intelligence led imaging features, making your already great selfies even better. And with masks you can have more fun with your camera and even add them to your #Bothies.
With its impressive 16MP front-facing camera with ZEISS optics, the Nokia 7 plus adapts to low light conditions by increasing light sensitivity to guarantee picture-perfect selfies. Enhanced Dual-Sight harnesses the front and back cameras simultaneously to capture the ultimate #Bothie and keep it safe with unlimited photo and video uploads to Google Photos. Three microphones capture immersive 360° Nokia spatial audio to match your 4K video, helping transport your audience to the centre of the action and creating content worthy of the big screen.
