HMD Global is expected to introduce the upgraded version of the Nokia 7, dubbed as the Nokia 7 Plus, at the Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month. The upcoming device will be sporting a Snapdragon 660 chipset and a dual-12 MP + 13 MP-Zeiss-rear cameras.

The Finnish tech company HMD Global has been prepping a couple of devices for us at the Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month. For instance, we are expecting to see the Nokia 9 flagship phone get unveiled at the trade show. Its lower-end sibling, the mid-range Nokia 7 Plus, will also show up at the event. The Nokia 7 Plus, which is an upgraded version of the Nokia 7 launched last October in China, is expected to arrive in markets across the globe upon its launch instead of being China-exclusive just like its predecessor. Also, the phone has been in the rumor mills lately, leaving almost nothing to the imagination.

Although we already saw a lot of leaks, the latest one we came across with is the most complete and maybe, the most accurate, among all. We are talking about the marketing images of the Nokia 7 Plus recently unearthed from a Chinese website, showcasing the device in all its glory and revealing its full specs sheet. Going by the photos, the Nokia 7 Plus seems to be the first-ever Nokia-branded phone with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The aluminum-clad device sports minimal top and bottom bezels and almost non-existent side bezels. There's a vertically-placed dual-rear-camera module with an LED flash on its side and a fingerprint scanner below it.

Regarding the specs, the Nokia 7 Plus is said to sport a 6-inch display with a Corning Gorilla Glass on top. Under the hood, it might have a Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with Adreno 512 GPU and 4 GB of RAM. There will be a 64 GB of internal memory storage on board. On the camera front, it is expected to feature a dual-12 MP + 13 MP-Zeiss-rear-camera setup and a 16 MP selfie shooter. It will run on Android 8.0 Oreo as its platform.
