Nokia recently launched a couple of new smartphones in India, one of which was the Nokia 7 Plus. The Nokia 7 Plus is a great smartphone but misses onto one feature. The smartphone does not support LTE on both the sim-slots. Interestingly, Nokia will soon roll-out an update enabling users to get LTE networks on their 2nd SIM as well.
Juho Sarvikas, CEO of Nokia, replied to a tweet by Siddhartha Sharma saying, "Thanks Sid for the awesome review and don't worry, 2nd sim will support LTE shortly!" However, shortly here might mean that the Nokia 7 Plus users will have to wait for a few weeks until Nokia officially rolls out the update.
