Here’s a live shot of the Nokia 7+ in the wild

After a press render of the Nokia 7+ surfaced earlier this week, an in the wild shot of the phone has appeared showing what we can expect to see when the phone is unveiled officially at Mobile World Congress.

The Nokia 7+ photo first surfaced on a Portugese Android Facebook group before showing up on V-Tech. The phone is set to be unveiled alongside the Nokia 1 – rumoured to run Android Go – as well as an updated Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 handsets next Sunday in Barcelona.

The Nokia 7 will feature a rear finger print sensor and dual 12MP/13MP rear camera setup with Zeiss optics as shown in the render. A curved 18:9 display ratio display with a rumoured FHD+ (2160×1080) resolution with small top and bottom bezels that contain a 16MP selfie camera will feature on the front of the handset.

Internally, the rumour mill suggests a Snapdragon 660 processor will power the phone and a microSD card slot should also be included.

Software wise, the Nokia 7+ will, according to Evan Blass (@EvLeaks) who tweeted the above renders, apparently be offered in an Android One config. The major difference between the usual stock Android build offered by HMD Global on their Nokia handsets and Android One is that Google generally controls the software experience whereas HMD build and test Android for their stock handsets.

We’ll be checking the Nokia launch out next week in Barcelona so stay tuned for all the launch info.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Why does it have a fingerprint icon on the front?

Ausdroid Reader

That’s pretty much standard on most phones that run almost stock Android. It’s on my Moto Z Play too. Someone if I’m wrong but I think it indicates you need to unlock the phone using the fp sensor

@JamieS5555 is correct. it is the standard symbol on Android that indicates that (atleast 1 ) fingerprint is set up on the phone to be able to unlock it. If you don’t have a FP scanner or it is not set up, you will see the Padlock Symbol ( either locked or unlocked) ..

Examples from Sony

Interesting to note that Samsung S8+ Nougat shows a Padlock instead of the fingerprint on the same screen. I would prefer to see a fingerprint there.
