GinGas, 05 Feb 2018What is benefit of 2:1 screen? YouTube videos are 16:9. For reading news should be better 4:3.... moreThe benefit is for the phone companies, not for users. They can sell phones with smaller screens (and thus cost less) and mislead users to think that the screens are actually big.
I have an S8 that my employer gave me that I don't want to use because of its 18:9 screen. In theory its 5.8" screen is larger than the 5.6" screen of my 16:10 Note Edge (which is still my main phone), but in practice the S8 screen feels tiny in comparison and has a pointless aspect ratio. So annoying that this is becoming the norm.
Other manufacturers make 18:9 screen phones with slim bezels, but Nokia still hass those huge bezels. The phone is just ugly, and the bezels are actually bigger than in other manufacturers' regural 16:9 screen phones.
Just take a look at Huawei/Honor-phones with 18:9 screen phones. They are beautiful.
Nokia 8 is now available for less than $450 in India. So this might cost around 370$. Original Nokia 7 is still not available world wide
FPS on the back? No deal for me.
And if someone ask where to put it - look bottom bezel for first, can be side mounted as Sony etc...
On the back is most inconvinient place for me.
Honestly, this will be my secondary phone if this is indeed true and remarkable. Right now, I have still the Nokia 6 with me.
That design of the Nokia 7+ reminds me of the Nokia 9 or whatever it is then. Look at the back carefully and also see the previous renders and leaks of Nokia 9.

AnonD-241270, 05 Feb 2018No, if this came in a 280-350 range of price i see myself buying one of this. If they came ... moreOriginal Nokia 7 is already around 300. This will cost as low as 350. Sub-300 is really unlikely.
sadh, 05 Feb 2018Damn. If this is well-priced, it will sell like a hot cakes. I expect this beast costs around ... moreNo, if this came in a 280-350 range of price i see myself buying one of this.
If they came around 400 or more, better waiting for OP6 or others because if you add 80 to 100 you can get better those days.
AnonD-625621, 05 Feb 2018Good going by hmd... but they need to put better sw on their cameras and atleast give a basic ... moreThey already have their file manager pre installed and it works quit well

2:1 gives you less screen area.
HMD is responsible for the specs.
I still wonder ppl say:
- Please Nokia, do this. Do that....
