Nokia 7.2 Android One Phone to Arrive with Circular Triple Camera Design, September Launch Confirmed

Nokia Leaked Smartphone Hands On

Nokia is expected to showcase and possibly launch a couple of new devices at IFA 2019. While we still do not have all the details regarding the handsets that will be launched there, a recent accidental leak by Nokia has revealed that one of these handsets would be the Nokia 7.2. The tweet was accidentally sent out by a senior ZEISS executive who deleted it immediately after that. The tweet reportedly talked about the Nokia 7.2 – an Android One handset that Nokia is reportedly set to launch at IFA 2019. The tweet allegedly also contained an image of the rear panel of the Nokia 7.2. This image was later tweeted out by young Indian leakster Ishan Agarwal. According to 9to5Google, the tweet was accidentally sent out during an interaction between a select group of media personnel and Nokia executives. 

We have embedded Ishan’s tweet below.

As evident from the image, the Nokia 7.2 gets a triple camera setup at the rear More interestingly, we see that the three cameras, along with the LED flash are all houses inside a raised camera bump. There is also a fingerprint scanner right below the camera module. Needless to say, the camera will make judicious use of ZEISS lenses. What we do not know yet, however, is the sensor and lens combinations of these three cameras. The latest also confirms that fact that an earlier unknown Nokia handset that was leaked earlier in July is the Nokia 7.2. Back then, a set of leaked images showed a handset with a similar camera bump and a large display with a waterdrop notch at the top. Back then, it was reported that the primary camera on the handset is a 48MP sensor.  

Take a look at the leaked images that were posted back then.

Anyway, it is still early days for the Nokia 7.2, and it is plausible that we would only be able to get more details about this handset when Nokia officially announces this handset at IFA 2019 which is set to start from September 6.
