Nokia 7

The Nokia 7 is a mid-range phone with hardware to suit. A key feature is its 'bothie' camera - as seen in the Nokia 8 - which lets you simultaneously capture images from the front and rear cameras.

The rear camera is actually a dual-lens model, with one 16Mp lens and another rated at 5Mp.

The design is in line with the rest of the Nokia Android phone family, with a 7.9mm-thick 7000-series aluminium frame with diamond-cut edges. There's also a 5.2in full-HD IPS display and a built-in fingerprint scanner.

The Nokia 7 will be available in Gloss Black and Matte White.
