HMD today has announced their latest Nokia branded smartphone which is the Nokia 7.1 and it has some juicy specs for a relatively "budget" smartphone.

The inclusion of a display notch will likely be as polarizing Android consumers as other cutout-equipped devices proved to be, though the mass market already clearly signaled it doesn't consider notches to be a deal-breaker, as evidenced by the excellent commercial performance of recent flagships from Apple and Huawei.

Looking at everything it offers, the Nokia 7.1 offers a compelling mid-range experience at an attractive price point.

While the new Nokia 7.1 has a 3.5mm headphone jack, HMD unveiled a couple of wireless headphones for those who want to go untethered.

DisplaySpeaking of the face, the Nokia 7.1 sports a 5.84-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080 px) display which not only adapts its brightness, but also its color tones for different situations, in an effort to keep the screen easily visible.
