Nokie phones now reinforced with Android One commitment

By shipping with Android Oreo out of the box, you’ll be able to enjoy the latest features, including Picture-in-Picture for multitasking, Android Instant Apps to discover and run apps with minimal friction, 60 fantastic new emojis and battery-maximising features like limiting background app use.
Introducing three new Nokia Android smartphones and expansion of the portfolio:
Nokia 7 plus: the flagship hero for everyone
Combining innovative optical hardware and imaging algorithms, the Nokia 7 plus captures moments into photos that are true to life. With enhanced Dual-Sight, dual rear sensors with ZEISS optics combine an ultra-sensitive 12MP wide-angle primary camera for excellent performance in both low-light and extra bright conditions and a secondary 13MP camera that delivers 2x optical zoom for the moments when you wish you were closer.
To enable you to capture and enjoy more content for longer, the Nokia 7 plus is backed by the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660 Mobile Platform. It’s been integrated for maximum performance and is optimised to extract every bit of juice from the already powerful 3800 mAh battery! The Nokia 7 plus delivers an amazing 2-day battery life.
Its gently curved back and slim edges give you a big-screen experience in a comfortable, neat package. The vivid 6-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display makes the Nokia 7 plus perfect for browsing, social media consumption, gaming and entertainment with more content in the same width as a traditional 5.5-inch display device.
Available in Black/Copper and White/Copper, the Nokia 7 plus will go on sale from 12 May 2018 at an RRP of SGD599.00 with GST.
The New Nokia 6: Nokia’s award-winning phone just got even better
Building on the success of its predecessor, the New Nokia 6 packs even more powerful performance and great new features in a more compact, durable body. Over 60% faster than its award-winning predecessor, it now offers enhanced Dual-Sight, ZEISS optics, USB-C fast-charging, a more compact screen-to-body ratio, Nokia spatial audio and pure, secure and up-to-date Android Oreo™.
The New Nokia 6 combines a unibody, made from a solid block of 6000 series aluminium, with an 11-hour two-tone anodising and polishing process. And by uniting a sculpted 2.5D display with damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the New Nokia 6’s compact and refined body is built to last.
Nokia’s engineers have integrated the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 Mobile Platform to deliver fast and smooth performance alongside great day-long battery life.
Available in Blue/Gold, the New Nokia 6 will go on sale from 12 May 2018 at an RRP of SGD439.00 with GST.
