Nokia 7.2 with 48MP Camera, Snapdragon 660 SoC Launched in India: Price, Features, Specs


Nokia has sent a press release to the media earlier today announcing that the brand has launched the Nokia 7.2 smartphone in the Indian market. The Nokia 7.2 made its debut at the IFA 2019 event, and it comes as the successor to the Nokia 7.1 that was launched in India earlier this year.

The Nokia 7.2 is a massive upgrade over its predecessor. It features a larger screen, vastly improved rear camera setup, a more powerful processor, and a larger battery pack. Here are the complete specifications of the device, and its pricing and availability details for the Indian market.

Nokia 7.2 Price in India, Offers, Availability

Nokia has launched the Nokia 7.2 in India in two memory configurations. The first variant has 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, and it is priced at INR 18,599. The second variant packs 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and this costs INR 19,599. Both memory configurations will be available in two color options – Charcoal, and Cyan Green. All variant will go on sale in India starting 23rd September through Nokia’s official online store, Flipkart, and all major offline retail shops.

And when it comes to offers, the Nokia 7.2 comes with a plethora of them. People purchasing the Nokia 7.2 from Nokia’s official online store will get INR 2,000 worth gift voucher which they can use only on Nokia’s official online store. Those who purchase the device from Flipkart will get INR 2,000 extra off on exchange. And what about people purchasing from offline stores? Well, they can avail 10% cashback on the price of the device, provided that they make the payment through HDFC credit or debit cards. All these offers are valid till 31st October 2019.

 Nokia 7.2 Specifications

The Nokia 7.2 features a 6.3-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution. The display has HDR, as well as, always-on feature. Both features aren’t present in other similarly priced smartphones. However, in my opinion, people purchasing a smartphone under INR 20,000 need an AMOLED display rather than HDR and always-on feature. Anyway, the display comes with a V-shaped notch and Corning Gorilla 3 protection.

Nokia has put Snapdragon 660 SoC in the Nokia 7.2, which is significantly more powerful than the Snapdragon 636 that is in the Nokia 7.1. However, similarly priced smartphones feature even more powerful chipsets, such as Snapdragon 710, 712, and Snapdragon 730. This could be a deal-breaker for some. On the software part, the Nokia 7.2 has Android 9 Pie with stock UI. And like other Nokia devices, this one is an Android One handset too. Nokia says that it will provide Nokia 7.2 with two years of OS updates and three years of security updates.

When it comes to the camera, the Nokia 7.2 has three of them at the rear – a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. This is a massive hardware upgrade over the 12MP + 5MP rear camera setup that the Nokia 7.1 features. The Nokia 7.2 also features a 20MP front-facing camera, instead of an 8MP unit in its predecessor. The rear camera can record 4K videos, and the front-facing camera, as you might expect can record Full HD videos.

Nokia has equipped the Nokia 7.2 with a 3500mAh unit, which is larger than the 3000mAh unit in the Nokia 7.1. That being said, the battery capacity is still lower compared to other competing smartphones, such as Redmi K20 Pro and Realme 5 Pro, which have a 4000mAh battery. Other features of the smartphone include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, and dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, and triple SIM slot.
