IFA 2019 | The Nokia 7.2 offers a 48 MP triple camera with ZEISS optics and a PureDisplay always-on HDR screen for €299
We've been expecting Nokia to introduce a 48 MP mid-range phone for quite sometime and now, it is finally here. The Nokia 7.2, codenamed 'Daredevil', is HMD's first dabbling with the 48 MP sensor that has become the staple of many Android smartphones this year. The Nokia 7.2 also features ZEISS optics and a dedicated Pixelworks visual processor for driving the always-on HDR FHD+ display.
The Nokia 7.2's circular camera array is comprised of three sensors — a 48 MP "super-sensitive" 1/2-inch quad-pixel sensor with an f/1.79 aperture, a 5 MP depth sensor, and an 8 MP f/2.2 wide-angle (118°) lens. The camera is aided by AI features for low-light photography and portrait shots are further enhanced by ZEISS bokeh filters in an attempt to recreate the characteristic blur of these lenses. The teardrop notch in the display houses a 20 MP f/2 front-facing camera.
Powering the Nokia 7.2 is the highly power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. The Snapdragon 660 is fine for the majority of mobile applications on the CPU side of things, but the Adreno 512 is not a GPU behemoth by any stretch. Therefore, HMD has included a Pixelworks co-processor to drive the always-on 10-bit HDR display and upscale standard dynamic range content. The Pixelworks co-processor also works to enhance the image quality based on ambient light conditions.
The Nokia 7.2 will be available from September-end in Cyan Green, Charcoal, and Ice color options. RAM and storage options include 4 GB/64 GB and 6 GB/64 GB priced at €299 and €349 respectively.
