Nokia 7.2 launches with Android One and high-end design

The Nokia 7.2 was revealed this week in Charcoal, Cyan Green, and Ice. This might be the most extravagant launch of an Android One smartphone since the launch of Android One – what with the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass over 6.3-inch FHD+ display with “PureDisplay” tech inside. This smartphone looks the part of a far more expensive phone, to be sure.

The cameras on this smartphone include a 48MP 1/2″ Quad Pixel sensor, a 5MP depth sensor, and an 8MP sensor with ultra-wide lens – along with an LED flash. Those cameras sit in a very nicely designed circular backside camera array that sits above a single fingerprint scanner.

The front of this smartphone has a drop notch with a single camera. This camera is a 20MP Quad Pixel shooter for all manner of selfies and such.

This smartphone will launch with Android 9 Pie in the Android One program. That means its pretty much just pure Google-made Android, no wild skins or modifications made by Nokia or HMD Global in any major way. That also means you’ll get quick updates to the latest version of Android when the time is right – or so we would hope.

The Nokia 7.2 has a non-removable 3500mAh battery inside and is 5V/2A charge compatible. Two versions (and three different colors) are set to be released, one with 64GB internal storage and 4GB RAM, the other with 128GB and 6GB RAM. Both have microSD card slots with support for up to 512GB more data storage.

Connectivity in the USA includes GSM and WCDMA with a variety of bands for 3G, and 4G LTE – so it should work pretty well with most any carrier you’ll choose inside North America. This device is also set to be available internationally, in Latin America, India, and throughout EMEA.

Throughout Europe this device will cost around EUR 249 (roughly Rs. 19,800). In the USA the phone will cost the same as the original Nokia 7.1 at approximately $349 USD. This phone will be released near the end of September, 2019.

Above you’ll see a presentation video for this smartphone via HMD Global, the people who currently make Nokia-brand phones. This is just one of several Nokia smartphones (and other mobile devices) launched this week at IFA 2019.
