Nokia 7 plus is the mobile product launched by HMD global which features Google’s new stock versions of Android One. This phone is slim in design, fast to work on and easy to use with guaranteed updates. With impressive battery life this phone comes without a glass back but with copper highlights around the matte black aluminium backing of the phone which does not look aluminium thanks to the six layers of ceramic-feel paint on the outside of it. This gives a certain elegance you don’t usually expect in a mid-range phone.

While the specs are definitely mid-range with the processor only being a Snapdragon 660 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage the performance does not suffer. Running Android One the interface is smooth and slick as you would expect from something so very close to stock Android. With Android One you are guaranteed to receive timely security updates with Nokia stating that the Nokia 7 Plus will receive three years of regular security patches and two years of OS updates.
