Why it matters: The 7.2 is the first Nokia smartphone to feature a rear-facing triple camera system comprised of a 48-megapixel primary shooter with Quad Pixel technology, a 5-megapixel depth sensor and an 8-megpaixel ultra-wide lens with an 118-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture, all of which sport Zeiss optics.
HMD Global at IFA 2019 in Berlin earlier this month announced two mid-segment smartphones, the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, the latter of which is now available to pre-order in the US.
Quad Pixel technology combines four pixels into one to create what Nokia calls “stunning images in all conditions.”
The front-facing shooter is a 20-megapixel part with f/2.0 lens that’s capable of recording 1080p at up to 30 frames per second.
Elsewhere, you’ll find a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen with PureDisplay technology and always-on HDR that’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage that’s expandable via microSD card slot. The screen is coated in 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass so scratching should be reduced to a minimum.
The handset ships with Android 9 Pie although Nokia said it is Android 10 ready and will receive guaranteed monthly security updates for three years and OS updates for two years.
