Amazon India has created a dedicated page for its upcoming Great Indian Festival. This page has a banner for an upcoming smartphone from Nokia – the Nokia 6.2. And the banner reveals that the device will launch in India on the 11th of October and go on sale in the country the same day. Unfortunately, the e-commerce website hasn’t revealed the price of the smartphone yet. In Europe, the Nokia 6.2 costs EUR 199 for the base variant, which converts to around INR 15,000. And you can expect the device to come with the same price tag in India.
The Nokia 6.2, as most of you might know, made its debut at the IFA 2019 in Berlin, alongside the Nokia 7.2 smartphone. The Nokia 6.2 comes as the successor to the Nokia 6.1, which is currently on sale in India. The device brings some major upgrades over its predecessor, including a larger display, improved rear camera setup, and a larger battery pack. Speaking of which, here are the complete specifications of the smartphone.
Nokia 6.2 Official Specifications
The biggest upgrade Nokia 6.2 brings over its predecessor is in the display section. The device has a 6.3-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution, instead of a 5.8-inch unit in the Nokia 6.1. There is also HDR 10 and always-on feature this time around. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection is carried over from the last generation device.
While the Nokia 6.1 had a dual-camera setup at the rear, the Nokia 6.2 comes with a triple-camera configuration. There is a 16MP primary camera with PDAF, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. Weirdly enough, Nokia has lowered the resolution of the front-facing camera in the Nokia 6.2, compared to the one in its predecessor; it is an 8MP unit, instead of a 16MP sensor that is in the Nokia 6.1.
Every smartphone nowadays features a more powerful processor than the one in its predecessor. Well, that is not the case with the Nokia 6.2. It has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC that is in the Nokia 6.1. This chipset is quite outdated, and smartphones that cost half of what the Nokia 6.2 does come with chipsets that pack twice the power. Anyway, the Nokia 6.2 comes in three configurations internationally – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 128GB storage. Similar to other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 6.2 is also an Android One device, and it comes with Android 9 Pie OS.
The Nokia 6.2 has a 3500mAh battery pack, which is 500mAh more than the one in its predecessor. The device supports 18W charging. However, I doubt if it will ship with an 18W charger in the box. The Nokia 6.2 comes with a USB Type-C port, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, and Bluetooth 5.0. There is also a 3.5mm audio jack onboard.
