Nokia 7 Plus launching May 2 and comes with free Google Home Mini

There was a load of phones trying to wow us at MWC 2018 this year, but one that stood above the rest was the Nokia 7 Plus. AC's Andrew Martonik best described the Nokia 7 Plus as a "Pixel 2 for the frugal set" during his hands-on with it, and now it's been confirmed that the phone will launch on May 2.

The Nokia 7 Plus carries a price tag of £349.99, and for that price, you're getting a phone with a two-tone metal build, dual cameras from Zeiss, a 6-inch 18:9 display with slim bezels, and Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. As if that wasn't enough, the Nokia 7 Plus also packs a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,800 mAh battery. Oh, and it's an Android One phone — meaning it'll get software updates nearly as fast as Google's Pixel line.

Along with the May 2 release date, Nokia's also said that pre-ordering the 7 Plus from its website will allow you to snag a Google Home Mini for free (a value of £49). As long as you make your purchase on Nokia's online store and do so before May is over, you'll be eligible for this promotion.

You can't order the phone from Nokia's site quite yet, but if you don't care about the Home Mini and just want to make sure you get the 7 Plus ASAP, pre-orders are live on Amazon right now.

  • Will it also follow Google's new policy of 3 years of OS updates?
  • The Nokia 7 Plus would be a alternative if I didn't have my heart set on a Pixel 2 XL as I want to be first in line for updates and want 4 years of software updates rather than the 2 you get with the Nokia 7 Plus with it being an Android One phone.
  • Hi Beno, I like this phone. A 3800mamp battery with a 660 processor & 4gb's & 64gb's of storage. Not bad, but I thought the price should have been at 400.00. I still like the price of the Nokia8 for 383.00 on Amazon. The copper model which is my favorite. Anyway, the 7plus has very good specs. Plus I like the direction HMD is going with their latest offerings. No notch!
  • I'm definitely getting a 7 plus. I Like the idea of the free Google home mini but I'd probably sell it as my house is full of echos.
  • Actually. A few other sites are stating "selected retailers" so maybe not limited to direct sale from Nokia?
  • Is this a 4 carrier compatible device or strictly GSM?
  • Amazon listing says it doesn't ship to the USA.
  • It's not even USA LTE-compatible. You'll only get HSPA connections.
  • Would be nice if you mentioned not in the USA
  • I imagine seeing the price in pounds would give that away or at least make one question it.
  • it should have been mentioned on the "headline" so I wouldn't click on the article.
  • Not coming to the US correct? I just ordered a Pixel 2 because this wasn't coming to the US so if that changes I might too.
  • Waiting to see it, Nokia 7 plus!
  • I can't wait for the Nokia 9!! It's between that and the OnePlus 6 to be replacing my 3T, but it's so awesome to see Nokia's back in the game and I would love to see them turn into a big Time Force in the industry again. But my high hopes do pretty much depend them continuing to use stock !
  • You're not in the US, right?
  • I was onto Nokia live chat about something else and asked about this offer. They denied all knowledge of this offer. Said it wasn't official. That said the last time I contacted them they gave me wrong info so......
  • Does anyone know if this phone is coming to the US?
  • Amazon has it!
  • Nokia, PLEASE release your AndroidOne phones in the US. With ZTE seemingly exiting the market, you have an opportunity here. Axon 7 & 7 mini users are starting to look for replacements now that it seems like we might be abandoned.
