With 5.5 inches display, 4GB RAM and 16MP camera, Nokia’s first Android model will give a tough competition to the already established Smartphone brands like Samsung, Sony, Lenovo and other industry players. According to industry sources, its unique design and display features are some of the stand-out factors. However, soon after launch the brand is expecting a shortfall in sales, due to certain not-so-good specifications.

Some other camera features include touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, and HDR. Using the camera, users can capture videos worth 1080p@30fps. The phone’s secondary camera is 8MP and gives a picture quality of 1080p. Its dual amplifiers and Dolby Atmos technology accounts for louder sound.
The phone is also equipped with other extraordinary features. It has fingerprint, gyro, proximity and compass sensors. The phone allows multiple messaging formats from SMS and MMS to Push Mail, Email and IM. It runs on HTML5 browser and comes with in-built tools like document viewer, photo and video editor.

With the above features and some new technology, Nokia’s Android debut is a mid-range phone, costing yet to finalise.

The curved back and the rounded edges increase the aesthetic value of this brand new smartphone greatly and also make it highly convenient to use. Moreover, the 2017 version of A7 will also be available in different colours ranging from black, pink, and blue to Gold. One of the major disadvantages of the 2016 version of A7 was its availability in peach black colour which used to tip off most of the customers but by making the new version available in different colour options, Samsung has solidified the success of this 2017 rendition.
