Nokia Teaser

A prematurely launched ad on Google recently revealed the price of the upcoming Nokia 6.2 ahead of HMD Global’s launch event in the country on June 6, i.e. tomorrow. According to some rumors, the Nokia 6.2 is likely to be a global variant of the Nokia X71 that was launched in the Chinese market in April this year. Nokia India has now released a new teaser on its social media pages, revealing a device featuring a waterdrop notch display. Even though we cannot be completely sure, it is possible that the device teased by Nokia India could be the Nokia 5.2.

Nokia 5.2 May Debut at HMD Global’s Launch Event in India Tomorrow

The latest teaser released by Nokia India shows the silhouette of a smartphone featuring a waterdrop-style notch at the top. HMD Global has so far launched only two smartphones with a waterdrop screen: Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2. Since both smartphones are already on sale in India, we can be sure that the device teased by HMD Global is an all-new smartphone. Some rumors have claimed that HMD Global may debut the Nokia 5.2 alongside the Nokia 6.2 at its June 6 event, so it is certainly possible that the device seen above may actually be the Nokia 5.2. While the Nokia 5.1 wasn’t launched in India, HMD had launched the Nokia 5.1 Plus in India in September last year at INR 10,999. We can expect the Nokia 5.2 to be priced somewhere around INR 12,000. Unfortunately, there is no information available currently regarding the possible hardware specifications of the Nokia 5.2.

Nokia 6.2 Expected to Cost INR 18,999 in India

As mentioned above, a user came across a Google ad campaign for the Nokia 6.2 recently, revealing the smartphone’s Indian pricing. According to the ad, Nokia 6.2 will be priced at INR 18,999 for the 4GB RAM variant. The Nokia X71, however, comes only in a single configuration with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage in China. In case HMD Global launched a 6GB RAM variant as well, you can expect it to be priced slightly above INR 20,000.

Even though the specifications of the Nokia 6.2 have not been confirmed yet, it is rumored to be largely similar to the Nokia X71. The Nokia X71 is equipped with a 6.39-inch punch-hole IPS LCD PureDisplay with Full HD+ resolution and runs on a 14nm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor. It features a 48MP + 8MP + 5MP triple-camera setup at the rear with Zeiss optics and 4K video recording. The handset has a 16MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture. Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh non-removable battery with support for 18W fast charging. On the software front, the Android One smartphone runs on stock 9.0 Pie OS.
