Just as expected, HMD Global announced new devices at its first appearance at Europe’s best electronics show, IFA, taking place in Germany. Nokia announced a total of five devices, including the Nokia 6.2, Nokia 7.2, two KaiOS devices, and feature phone. However, the Nokia 5.2 did not make an appearance at the show.
Nokia 6.2 takes over from the Nokia 6.1 launched last year. The Nokia 6.2 features a triple camera setup on the rear with a circular camera bump. The triple rear camera setup is made of a 16 MP, f/1.8, (wide) snapper, 8 MP, f/2.2, ultrawide sensor and a 5 MP camera for depth sensing. Main camera features include a LED flash, panorama, and HDR.
Despite the device having a 3500mAh Li-Po battery, Nokia promises 2-days of battery life. The Nokia 6.2 has a 6.3-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2280 pixels presented in a 19:9 ratio (~400 PPI density). The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and has HDR10 support.
Other specs include; 32GB/3GB RAM or 4/64/128GB, Snapdragon 636, USB type C, Bluetooth 5.0, 8 MP, f/2.0 selfie camera and 10W fast charging support.
The Nokia 6.2 will hit the shelves in October with a base price of €200 (approx. Ksh 23,000)
The Nokia 7.2 features a similar display size and type like the Nokia 6.2. Under the hood, the Nokia 7.2 packs an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 paired with Adreno 512 GPU.
The rear features a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary snapper + 8 MP, f/2.2 ultrawide sensor + 5 MP, depth sensor. The selfie camera is a 20MP shooter housed in a water-drop notch. The device is also powered by a 3500mAh Li-Po battery with 10W fast charge support.
Since Android One is HMD Global’s norm, both the Nokia 7.2 and 6.2 feature Android Pie based on Google’s stock ROM. For the Nokia 7.2, it comes in two memory options; 4/64GB or 6/128GB.
The Nokia 7.2 will hit the shelves this month. Pricing starts from €300 (approx. 34,500 ) for the 4/64GB variant
Nokia 2720 Flip
Nokia also announced a new KaiOS smart feature phone. It sports a classic flip-back design like old-feature phones. However, with KaiOS under its hood, the Nokia 2720 flip has digital applications like Google Maps, WhatsApp, Facebook, and you can even install more.
Specifications include; 2.8” QVGA internal display and an external 1.3” display for keeping tabs with notifications, T9 keypad, LTE & WIFI support, 4GB ROM, 2MP camera and Bluetooth 4.0. Price starts at approx. Ksh 10,000.
Nokia 800 Tough
Nokia 800 Tough is a kind of Nokia 3310 gimmick device for its toughness. The feature phone boasts an IP68 rating. Specs include; 2,100mAh battery, VoLTE & WI-FI support, Dual SIM, Bluetooth 4.1 and 4GB internal storage.
The price will start at €110(approx. Ksh 12,600) which is too much for a KaiOS device.
Nokia 110 follows up on the Nokia 105 feature phone with some improvements over the predecessor like support for 32GB microSD card.
