HMD Global launched the Nokia 7 Plus smartphone in India earlier this month, and the pre-bookings for the phone started today. We already brought you the unboxing of the smartphone, here we have the camera samples from the phone. The Nokia 7 Plus packs a 12-megapixel primary rear camera with f/1.75 aperture, 1.4µm pixel size with ZEISS optics, dual-tone LED flash along with a 13-megapixel secondary camera with telephoto lens, 1.0µm pixel size, f/2.6 aperture with ZEISS optics to capture the depth information for portrait shots and also offers 2X loss-less zoom. It also has a 16-megapixel camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture and ZEISS optics.
The Camera UI is simple with toggles for front or rear camera, flash, HDR, Timer, PIP or Dual capture mode and settings on the left. There is also Panorama, Pro mode (to adjust white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation) and Live Bokeh.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shots came out well and the HDR shots were better. Macro shots were good as well. 2x loss-less zoom is useful when you want to get close-up shots. Since this has a telephoto secondary lens, you can’t capture close-up bokeh images using dual cameras, and it says you are too close. You also get a warning when the condition is too dark when you capture bokeh images. It detects people clearly compared to objects and sometimes it is hard to focus. Low-light images are decent, and there isn’t much noise, but images are underexpose a little. Pro mode offers better results in low-lighting conditions. Images with flash are decent and the flash is not overpowering. Thanks to dual-tone flash, it helps to maintain skin tone, but some images have a yellowish tint. Front camera is good for selfies, but the portrait selfie is not perfect since it blurs out things like hair.

It can record videos at maximum 4K resolution at 30 fps. It doesn’t have OIS, but has auto EIS, which works only in 1080p mode, which is good. It doesn’t support 1080p 60 fps recording, which is a bit disappointing. There is also slow-motion recording at 1080p resolution. Since it has three microphones and supports Nokia OZO Audio, audio is crisp. Check out the video samples below.
The camera stands out from the rest, thanks to ZEISS optics and fined-tuned camera software. The phone is available for pre-order Nokia mobile shop and offline stores at Rs. 25,999, will be available for order from Amazon.in soon, and it goes on sale from April 30th. We will bring you the complete review of the Nokia 7 Plus soon.
