The brand posted the news on ints official Twitter handle, which says one more thing to surprise us later in September, with emphasis on the letters “Pro 2”. Though the teaser don’t mention any specific device, it is likely to be a higher/pro variant of the Realme 2 with a more powerful chipset like Snapdragon 660 or 636 and with 6GB RAM. Also it is supported by the fact that it will be released a month after the the Realme 2, which was launched three months after its predecessor Realme 1.
Madhav Seth, Chief Executive Officer of Realme India revealed the company is preparing more devices that will be priced below Rs 20,000. The list includes Realme 3, Realme 4 and Realme 5, which will be launched in a phased manner before March 2019, which leaves approximately 7 month time frame. Also he added that a smartphone under the Android One program may also be launched.
The Pro variant of the Realme 2 shouldn’t differ much in specifications, but it might be receiving a processor upgrade as the one in Realme 2 didn’t impress anyone.

The teaser also reveals that the device will be launch on September 24 at 2:00 PM IST, where it will be revealing the pricing information.
It is also to be noted that the teaser reveals the hashtag #GameOn, which was previously reported to be that Nokia is working on a gaming phone, so that actually was a teaser for this phone and not a gaming phone.

The Nokia X7/7.1 Plus feature a similar design to that of the Nokia 6.1 Plus. It appears to have a glass body with a metal frame sandwiched in between. Though the previous leak suggests the handset will not have a notched display, the official renders show a notched display, a narrow one like the Nokia 6.1 Plus.

There is a circular fingerprint sensor placed below the cameras and the company logo following it. Also a Android One branding can also be seen clearly. The volume and power button are placed on the right side.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus is rumoured to be powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset likely to be coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Rumours also point to a larger battery with support for fast 18W charging. It is expected to come with the latest Android 9 Pie and be priced around Rs 25,000 approx. Since HMD takes a gap between the launch of the Chinese and International variant. The Nokia 6.1 Plus was launched three months after the Nokia X6. Following this schedule, the Nokia 7.1 Plus may be launched sometime towards the end of this year.
