Nokia’s new parent company, HMD Global, announced that the Black/Copper version of the Nokia 7 Plus with 64 GB of native storage space is now up for preorder straight from the Nokia website in the UK, retailing at £349.99 or about $490.
Other UK retailers, meanwhile, are expected to start taking preorders for the smartphone this week, on April 25. Those who preorder the Nokia 7 Plus directly from Nokia should expect to receive their new smartphone on May 2, based on the product listing.

As part of a new promotion at launch, the Nokia 7 Plus also bundles a free Google Home Mini smart speaker. This is a limited-time deal set to expire on June 14. To take advantage of this offer, Nokia 7 Plus customers will have to head over to the Nokia website starting on May 2 and enter their smartphone’s IMEI number to redeem the free speaker.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 6 also qualify for the same deal, packing a free Google Home Mini.
Nokia 7 Plus Specs
The Nokia 7 Plus features an 18:9 aspect ratio bezel-less display with 6-inch screen size with a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor under the hood . It has 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage space, expandable up to 256 GB with the help of a microSD card.The Nokia 7 Plus is also an Android One smartphone that runs Android 8.0 Oreo OS.
The Nokia 7 Plus further comes with a dual-rear camera setup consisting of a standard 12-megapixel camera and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, Carl Zeiss optics, and a 16-megapixel front-facing shooter.
A large 3,800 mAh battery keeps things up and running and should deliver a strong performance on a single charge and supports 18W fast.
In terms of design, although it’s not a high-end device with flagship specs, the Nokia 7 Plus sports a sleek look thanks to its aluminum build embellished with ceramic paint.
Here’s the full availability and prices.
• The Nokia 7 Plus is available on 2nd May for a RRP of £349.99 and comes in Black/Copper.
• A free Google Home Mini bundle is offered to all customers for the first month of sales.
• Pre-orders are available from Nokia.com from 18th April and other retailers from 25th April.
Along with the Nokia 7 Plus the firm also recently revealed its new 8110 feature phone.
The budget device sees the return of the classic 90’s slider design.
This allows users to answer and end calls via a simple flick of the case and it also means the keys are covered when the phone is tucked in your pocket.
The 8110, which was nicknamed the “banana phone” due to its curved shape, was a huge hit in the 90s with it immortalised in the classic Matrix movies.
4G download speeds, access to Facebook and a ridiculous 25-day battery life are also featured as is the all-important inclusion of the Snake game.
It’s worth pointing out that Amazon UK also lists the Nokia 7 Plus is available for preorder with an April 30 shipping date but it makes no mention of the Google Home Mini bundle. HMD Global has yet to announce which retailers will offer the promotional bundle, but more information should become available shortly.
