The company just debuted the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, two mid range devices which share a lot in common.
The Nokia 6.2 is the more affordable version, starting at €199 and packing either 3 or 4 GB of RAM alongside the Snapdragon 636 processor, 32 or 64 GB of storage that can be extended via microSD and a 3,500 mAh battery.
It comes with a 6.3-inch HDR display and Android Pie, as part of the Android One program, features a fingerprint reader, headphone jack and Google Assistant button.
What sets it apart from other midrangers is the focus on photography.
The Nokia 6.2 sports a triple rear camera with 16 MP + 8 MP ultra-wide lens + 5 MP dept sensor arranged in a circle.
A premiere for Nokia, the Nokia 6.2 comes with a long-exposure Night Mode for low-light photography. For selfies, there’s an 8 MP sensor with f/2 aperture.
Then, starting at €299, comes the bigger brother, the Nokia 7.2.
When we say bigger we mean just in terms of internals, not the screen.
The Nokia 7.2 shares the same 6.3-inch Full HD+ display protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and shares the same profile as the 6.2 – 159.88 x 75.11 x 8.25mm and 180 grams.
It also keeps the same 3,500 mAh battery, the 3.5 mm jack and the USB-C port.
Now let’s see what sets it apart.
For one, the Nokia 7.2 ships with 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage. Then, it swaps the Snapdragon 636 for a Snapdragon 660.
The cameras receive a major upgrade as well, on both front and back.
You have a 20 MP selfie camera with live beautification, de-noising in low light and a “super portrait” feature for an impeccable bokeh effect.
On the back, the Nokia 7.2 upgrades to a 48 MP primary sensor with f/1.79 aperture and Zeiss optics (a signature Nokia move by now), an 8 MP wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and the 5 MP depth sensor.
Here, HMD Global also emphasized the low-light performance, saying that the Nokia 7.2 goes down to 12 MP for better night-time shots and takes up to 20 images to find the perfect exposure.
The Nokia 7.2 and the Nokia 6.2 will both launch at the end of September but only the 7.2 will reach US shelves.
The Nokia 7.2 will be available in charcoal, ice, and cyan green, while the 6.2 will offer just ceramic black and white ice.
While their finish looks like a metal and glass combo, HMD actually used a high-tech polymer composite frame that retains the toughness of metal but keeps the weight down.
