HMD Global’s strategy for India involves having a Nokia phone at every price point, and the new Nokia 7.2 will try to take care of the sub Rs 20K segment, replacing the Nokia 7.1.
Nokia 7.2 specifications
Staying true to Nokia’s philosophy of offering high-end and durable designs, the Nokia 7.2 is made of a polycarbonate composite, and is covered on both sides with Gorilla Glass. On the front, we get a 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution. This display can output content in HDR, bringing an extended dynamic range, better contrast and vivid colours.
Internally, the Nokia 7.2 is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset with the Adreno 512 GPU. RAM options include 4 and 6GB, while storage is set to 64GB but can be expanded via microSD. As with all Nokia phone, the 7.2 is a part of Google’s Android One program, meaning it is first in line for the upcoming Android 10 update.
The other key talking point is the new set of cameras. On the back, the Nokia 7.2 has a triple camera setup, consisting of a primary 48MP, an 8MP ultra-wide and a 5MP depth sensor. This is the first Nokia phone to sport three cameras on the back, and all of them include ZEISS optics. The front camera is a 20MP shooter.
The battery is rated at 3,500 mAh and supports 10W charging over USB Type-C. The headphone jack is still present.
