Leaked renders show upcoming Nokia 7+ with Android One, plus cheap and cheerful Nokia 1

Under the stewardship of HMD Global, the revival of Nokia-branded phones continues apace. The company seems intent on filling out its Android lineup with every number one through ten, and the next devices rumored to be joining the ranks are the Nokia 7+ and the Nokia 1. Thanks to serial leaker Evan Blass, we now know what they're going to look like.

HMD's recent Nokia devices have been well supported and well received – check out Rita's Nokia 8 review, for example. The Nokia 7 was only announced in October, but it seems a plus version is already on its way, likely to be debuted at MWC 2018 in Barcelona at the end of the month.

Verizon Moto G4 Play gets Android 7.1.1 Nougat after being stuck on 6.0.1 for a long time

Motorola's excellent track record with updating devices fell by the wayside as it became part of Lenovo and started releasing more device variants than anyone can keep track of each year.

Then the unlocked international variant started getting Android 7.1.1 last month and now the Verizon one is following suit.

Android 7.1.1 is rolling out in an OTA to the Verizon Moto G4 Play and it takes the device from build MPIS24.241-2.35-1-17 to NPI26.48-38.
