HMD Global led Nokia is expected to be switching to a new design with the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus, which is rumoured to feature an 18:9 aspect ratio with bezel-less design. While these are still rumours, we think this device will be launched as a revamped version of Nokia 7 with better hardware.
IT Home has leaked that the upcoming smartphone will be sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio display, which could be the first from Nokia. The device was spotted last year with the Nokia camera app unpacked and showcasing the name of the phone.
