HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced Nokia 7 Plus has been selected as the Consumer Smartphone of the Year by the Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) for its striking design, powerful performance and impressive imaging capabilities.
The EISA Awards are judged by the world’s largest independent panel comprising over 55 of the most respected specialist magazines and websites.
“The Nokia 7 Plus was designed to deliver everything we stand for as a company so we are absolutely thrilled to see that it resonates with industry experts. We strive to create smartphones with the perfect blend of power, photography features and stylish design across all price points. With the Nokia 7 plus now recognised by such an esteemed association as EISA, we are proving that it is possible to deliver world-class style and substance in one powerful device,” said Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global.
The Nokia 7 Plus is armed with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. While the Qualcomm 600 mobile platform isn’t flagship, when combined with Adreno 540 GPU, it’s a CPU that’s 20 per cent faster than its predecessor with add-ons including LTE and AI components.
The smartphone runs on Android One OS – a variant of Android bereft of bloatware and customised skins found on Huawei and LG phones. It relies on Google’s first-party apps such as Photos, Calendar and Play Music rather than stock ones built by Nokia.
On the back of the Nokia 7 Plus is a dual-sensor array comprising a main 12MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture along with a 13MP sensor with an f/2.6 aperture. Both cameras are the result the partnership with Zeiss.
