HMD Global Launches the new Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2

Nokia 7.2

As promised and expected, HMD Global has launched two brand new smartphones at its event at this year's IFA 2019 in Berlin and these are the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 devices. Both devices sport a lot similarities, even in physical design and the new and unique circular rear cameras arrangement. But as you can already guess in the naming, the 7.2 offers a more upgraded experience most especially in the camera department.

Both of the devices offer PureDisplay technology which provides higher contrast and wider dynamic range making it much better selection over regular LCD display panels. The Nokia 7.2 and 6.2 have 6.3-inch Full HD+ display panels and each is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Fingerprint scanner for each of the devices is mounted on the back, still no in-display print reader here but that is absolutely fine.

Right out of the box, both of these phones will run Android 9 Pie. Thankfully though, these are still part of the Android One program which means two major Android software updates are guaranteed. And HMD Global has already confirmed that the upcoming Android 10 will definitely arrive on these smartphones. Also, the smartphones have their own dedicated Google Assistant Button, the same 3500mAh battery packs that the company promises to last up to two days on a single charge, FM Radio, 3.5mm audiojacks and the usual connectivity features.

The Nokia 7.2, the more high-end of the duo, is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor and will come with more than one RAM and storage solutions. On the other side, the Nokia 6.2 will be equipped with Snapdragon 636 and will also be coming in multiple RAM and storage options.

While the two have triple rear camera setup, the 7.2 sports a much higher and more powerful 48MP main sensor with ZEISS Optics, ultrawide and depth sensors. The 6.2 has 16MP as primary camera also with Ultrawide and Depth sensors.
