Nokia, under the umbrella of HMD Global, has come up with a new mid-range Nokia 7 bridging the gap between its high-end device Nokia 8 and mid-range devices like Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.

The Nokia 7 comes with a 5.2 inch IPS LCD display with a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top.

Nokia 7 is going to be available for purchase in China starting October 25 for $377 and $408 for the 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants, respectively.

One thing both handsets have in common is Nokia's new Bothie feature. The rear camera supports video recording up to 2160p at 30fps.

Nokia 8 was launched in India at Rs. 36,999 and is available for sale via both Amazon India and the offline stores across the country.

The company unveiled the Nokia 7 smartphone yesterday in China. Nokia 7 comes running Android Nougat out of the box but the company has promised the Oreo update soon.

The Nokia 7 specs include Qualcomm's Snapdragon 630 and 4 or 6GB of RAM. Also, the smartphone features 64GB of storage and 128GB MicroSD spot. The Nokia 7, in addition, comes with IP54 certification which makes it splash-proof (but not water-proof). Of course then you'll have to go through all the trouble of downloading an extra app, while the Nokia 8 gives you a dedicated toggle to activate the feature from the camera app itself.

Nokia, which used to be the No. 1 handset brand globally a decade ago, sold its smartphone business to Microsoft, which then sold the brand to HMD Global past year.

The Nokia 7's 16MP Zeiss primary shooter is capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps and utilizes OZO audio to capture 360-degree high-fidelity sound. Also, the cameras can combine into Dual-Sight camera mode which enables you to snap images from either side of the phone. The phone comes with a USB Type C port and a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support. It comes with fingerprint sensor under its home button.
