Unlike the Nokia 1, which is said to run Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition), the Nokia 7 Plus is expected to be an Android One smartphone.

We now get to the recent China launches that are expected to make global debuts at the Nokia MWC 2018 event, the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 3310 4G. The biggest design change HMD Global has made since the 2017 iteration of the Nokia 6 is the placement of the fingerprint sensor, bringing it to back panel (as seen below). The company has also dropped the capacitive keys that were seen on its predecessor, but retained the 16:9 display aspect ratio. It has a metal unibody design that is made of 6000 series aluminium.
