In the USA, you'll get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage while some markets will get a cheaper model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

In terms of photography, the Nokia 7.1 features a 12MP f/1.8 camera and 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor together with ZEISS optics on its rear. As for the connectivity, it includes USB Type-C port, OTG support, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Global Positioning System and NFC.

The device starts at $349 in the United States and £299 in the United Kingdom, where you'll also be able to buy a 32GB model of the device.
