During the event, Nokia confirmed the first wave of Android Pie updates should hit its phones this month.

The base 3GB/32GB configuration will start at €319 (Kshs 37K) and the 4GB/64GB one will be €349 (Kshs 41K).

In India, we've seen them launch the 6.1 Plus and the 5.1 Plus that are priced at Rs 15,999 and Rs 10,999 respectively.

For a sub-£300 phone, the Nokia 7.1 has the specs you might expect.

Nokia's big re-do may only be in its second year, but its phone lineup already covers every possible price bracket. It'll be available at Amazon, Best Buy and B&H starting at $349, with pre-sales launching on October 5, and the phone available on October 28.

Theresa May grooves to ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' at Tory Conference
Due to her somewhat stiff dance moves, many compared the prime minister to a robot. The latest example of this comes courtesy of the UK's Prime Minister Theresa May .

The Nokia 7.1 is the latest addition to Nokia's Android One family, which includes the mid-range Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 Plus, and the high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco. There might be some confusion in the naming scheme of the handset as the Nokia 7 launched in China only last year and the first global model in the "7" series was the Nokia 7 Plus that came earlier this year. It's paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM, and 32GB/64GB of internal storage with support for microSD cards of up to 400GB. Since its an Android One device, the Nokia 7.1 will get three years of monthly security patches and two years of OS updates.

Those, however, are hardly HMD Global's only Android phones in the market.

Besides, the company has also launched two new audio accessories - the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and according to HMD Global, the LCD panel can get noticeably bright. The USP of the device is its 5.84-inch screen with a Full HD+ (1080X2280 pixels) resolution and a notch on top. That's not all, you'll be able to enjoy higher contrast (1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) even with standard content, as the smartphone is able to convert normal videos to HDR ones real-time.

It also has an eight-megapixel front-facing camera and features Nokia's "bothie" pictures, which use front and rear cameras with a new slider to adjust the split screen. Unfortunately, those looking for wireless charging won't find it here - despite the Nokia 7.1 sporting a glass back. Backing up the entire package is a 3,060mAh battery with fast-charging support. In terms of optics, the Nokia 7.1 sports 12MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5MP Monochrome sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

The Nokia 7.1 features a 3060mAh battery that can be charged via Type-C USB port and fortunately, the smartphone supports fast-charging that takes the battery life from 0-50 percent in 30 minutes. On the front of the phone is an 8-megapixel selfie snapper.
