In a separate report, The first render of the Nokia 7.1 Plus was recently leaked, courtesy My Smart Price, and suggested the upcoming device will sports a glass design packed within a metal frame. The renders further revealed that the device will feature a narrow display notch, ultra-thin bezels on side edges, and a bottom chin with Nokia‘s logo on top with the volume rocker and power button sitting on the right edge.

In the camera department, The device gave us a peek on the dual rear cameras setup stacked vertically at the centre with LED flash module and ZEISS branding. Just below it houses the fingerprint sensor. you can also see the Nokia logo, and the Android One branding.

We assume, HMD Global will announced both the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 7.1 Plus at October 4th launch event schedule in London. because if you Look closely at the both pictures which surfaced online and the one which appeared on TENAA looked very much similar. while, the one which was leaked earlier this week in render appeared a lot different. we have listed the difference below which we spotted and no other publication has mentioned yet. Yes, we could go wrong but our theory suggest, if the one leaked earlier by MSP is Nokia 7,1 plus as reported, then the one which is spotted on TENAA has to be Nokia 7.1 Plus. because, both the devices seems different from each other.

First of all, the one listed on TENAA comes with a notch-less display, while the one leaked in a render comes with a notch display. also, the earpiece and selfie camera module on the notch-less display is positioned at distance. while, the one with notch display reveals front camera sensor, and earpiece close to each other.

Moving towards the back, The one listed on TENAA reveals the dual cameras setup slightly smaller in length, with the LED flash module on the left, and a fingerprint sensor surrounded by a ring. while, the leaked render reveals the dual cameras setup standing taller, beneath which sits the LED flash module, and fingerprint sensor.

Overall, it seems HMD Global is definitely going to announce Nokia 7.1 or Nokia 7.1 Plus at the launch event which is good news for fans.
