Nokia X7 launched: A bargain you’ll only find in China (for now)

HMD Global has announced the Nokia X7, the latest mid-range smartphone in the X series of phones in China.

Regional pricing will start at the rough equivalent of $245 (1,699 yuan) for a 4GB RAM/64GB ROM configuration, going up to CNY 1,999 ($290) and CNY 2,499 ($360) respectively with 6GB RAM and either 64 or 128 gigs of internal storage.

You get an 18W fast charger to fill half of the 3,500mAh battery in just 30 minutes. The camera supports optical image stablisation.

The Nokia X7 comes features a 6.18-inch display that runs at a resolution of 2246×1080 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. In terms of optics, the Nokia X7 will be offering 12MP + 13MP dual rear cameras and a 20MP single selfie camera. The screen comes with DCI-P3 wide color gamut and support for HDR video playback. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC with octa-core CPU, and Adreno 616 GPU. You might be able to get the same piece of hardware elsewhere later-we expect it to launch as the Nokia 7.1 Plus outside China. All variants will come with support for microSD cards of up to 400GB capacity. The long-awaited Nokia X7 is widely expected to launch as the Nokia 7.1 Plus in the worldwide market, and had been leaked multiple times before the event. The dual camera system includes a 13-megapixel primary IMX363 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 1.4 micron pixels, and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor. The smartphone is available in Black, Purple, Blue, and White colour options. Additionally, the cameras are backed by AI which will detect scenes and adjust the settings accordingly.

Climate change is threatening world’s beer supply
Only the highest quality grain - less than 20 percent - is used to make beer, with most of the rest used as feedstock. Decreasing yields would leave less barley for beer production, as its use as food and cattle feed takes precedence.

The notch of the smartphone houses a 20-megapixel selfie camera, an earpiece and other sensors. There is also AI portrait mode and studio light effects too.

Moving onto the connectivity options, it has Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

This dual-SIM smartphone comes laden with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and it will receive Android 9 Pie update at a later date.
