A renown tipster on Twitter just offered a plausible explanation about the confusion surrounding the upcoming Nokia 7.1 Plus smartphone. A tweet from Roland Quandt popped up that can be interpreted in two ways – that the phone is going to be launched as the Nokia 7.1 without the Plus version or that there are actually going to be two smartphones coming to the 7-series.
Nokia 7.1 (4/64GB) Blue or Steel, 399 Euro. No Plus in that name.

Given the contradicting rumors about the Nokia 7.1 Plus’ front panel lately, our bet is on the second one. We’ve seen two shots of the Nokia 7.1 Plus’ front panel without a notch and two renders that depict it with a notch.
It would only make sense that we were looking at two different devices the whole time, assuming the Nokia 7.1 comes without a notch while the Plus variant features one. The Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 5.1 Plus both came with the popular screen cutout, which has lead us to believe the Nokia 7.1 Plus will follow suit.
In any case, the Nokia 7.1 will come in Blue and Steel colors packing 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The asking price of the handset will be 399.
