While hardcore fans are still waiting for the top of the line Nokia 9 to be made official, HMD Global threw them a curve ball this week and announced the mid-range Nokia 7 for the Chinese market. The mere existence of Android phones bearing the famous Finnish brand is apparently not enough; Nokia is once again touting its Dual-sight camera (aka "bothie") as a unique selling point. Other notable specs are as follows:

Snapdragon 630 processor
5.2 inch FHD LCD display
4 or 6 GB RAM / 64 GB storage plus microSD (or dual SIM)
16 MP rear camera with PDAF, Carl Zeiss optics
5 MP selfie cam with autofocus
3,000 mAh battery with USB-C charging port
Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Courage (headphone) jack

The 7 will be available starting October 24th in either black or white, with either 4 or 6 GB of RAM and priced at either ¥2,499 or ¥2,699—which works out to about $377 or $407 USD. Will a version of this phone ever wash up on North American shores? You'll have to ask HMD Global about that.
