Nokia 7 Plus is out of the rumor mills. The phone was announced at the MWC 2018 and just like it had been leaked before launch, you get a flurry of premium features, including a dual Carl Zeiss camera on the back, an 18:9 display and best of all, it is part of Android One.
The phone rocks a premium build molded from a solid block of 6000 series aluminum with subtle curves and ceramic-like finish, giving it one of the best looks on a phone yet while at the same time ensuring you don’t lose grip of it, the company claims.
