Nokia branded smartphones appear at its first ever IFA show and HMD introduced a couple of skilled Android mid-rangers – the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2. The duo are almost the same phone, with the 7.2 being the Pro model with better cameras and faster chipset.
The Nokia 6.2 has the same 6.3-inch 1080p+ screen as its sibling, complete with HDR10 support. The same 3,500mAh battery with 10W charging is the same as well. In fact, if not for the lack of ZEISS branding, you’d be hard-pressed to tell these two apart.
As far as the camera, the triple camera switches to a 16MP main sensor – it can still do image fusion and stacking for HDR and Night mode, but there’s no pixel binning. The 8MP ultra wide-angle (118°) and 5MP depth sensors are almost identical, save for the ZEISS lenses. The selfie camera was also demoted and has an 8MP sensor.
The other major change is the chipset – the Nokia 6.2 uses a Snapdragon 636. Like the 660, it has a CPU with a 4+4 configuration of A73 and A53-derived Kryo cores, however they run at a lower clock speed. The GPU has been scaled back as well.
Both the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 move away from polycarbonate and aluminium, the most common choices for a phone’s chassis. Instead they use a polymer composite, which HMD says is twice as strong as polycarbonate while weighing half as much as aluminium. Gorilla Glass 3 is used to protect both the screen and the back from scratches.
