HMD Global – a company licensed to use the Nokia brand – took advantage of IFA 2019 (Technology Fair in Berlin, Germany) to present five new Finnish-brand equipment, two smartphones and three traditional mobile phones.
A successor to Nokia 7.1 launched last year, Nokia 7.2 is notably highlighting its camera system, consisting of three Carl Zeiss lenses: a 48 MP main sensor, an 8 MP wide-angle sensor and a 5 MP depth. In addition to using Quad Pixel technology to get better photos in low light, one of the key advantages of Nokia 7.2 is the Zeiss Swirl, Zeiss Modern and Zeiss Smooth modes, which allow you to recreate the bokeh effect of professional Carl lens cameras Zeiss – and although the device only has a depth sensor at the rear, these modes can be used with both the rear and front cameras.
The device also has a 6.3 inch screen with Full HD resolution and HDR support, which allows you to show more vivid colors and have a higher contrast between them. The screen also has a water drop notch, which is where the front camera 20 MP of the equipment. The smartphone is made of aluminum covered with a type of polymer that is stronger than polycarbonate but lighter, ensuring that Nokia 7.2 is much tougher. Both the display and the device have Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
On the hardware side, the device uses a Snapdragon 660 processor, has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. It also has a dedicated side button for calling Google Assistant, USB-C input, 3.5mm headphone jack connector and biometric reader. All of this is powered by a 3500 mAh battery.
The smartphone also comes standard with Android 10 (the latest version of the operating system) installed, and is part of the Android One program, which ensures that it will receive security updates for three years and, for the next two, will also receive the latest updates. Android system version updates.
Another interesting feature is “Ambient Mode”, which turns the smartphone into a smart speaker, leaving the microphones always open to receive voice commands from the user.
Nokia 6.2 has the same external specifications as 7.2 – same screen size, same notch, same protective material – and the difference between them is basically in hardware.
The smartphone uses a Snapdragon 636 processor, plus 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage and biometric reader, all running on the same 3,500 mAh battery as Nokia 7.2. It also comes standard with Android 10.
The main difference between the two models is in the main rear camera, which in Nokia 6.2 is only 16 MP (the other two lenses are exactly the same as Nokia 7.2) and the lack of a headphone jack.
The Nokia 2720 is a model made for those who like more traditional mobile phones.
The model is a kind of “hybrid” between a traditional mobile phone and a smartphone, with 4G connection and working with the KaiOS operating system, which allows access to some services and apps like Google Maps, Google Assistant, WhatsApp and YouTube.
None of the 2 screens of the device (internal 2.8 inch used for main navigation, and external 1.3 inch used to view notifications received with the phone closed) have no touch function and all navigation (and messaging ) should be done by the physical / alphanumeric keypad as is standard on traditional mobile phones.
One of the main advantages of this equipment is its battery, which can last up to 27 days in standby mode. It is also possible to end a call just by closing the phone, giving that dramatic touch that has been lost on today’s smartphones.
Nokia 800 Tough
Not only is this equipment IP68 rated (completely impervious to dust and continuous immersion in water), it also meets MIL-STD-810G military test criteria, which means it is not only resistant to exposure and climate change (sun, rain, snow, thermal shocks caused by a sudden change in temperature) but even more extreme conditions such as continuing to operate in environments where shootings and bomb blasts occur.
Because it is rubber-edged equipment, it also means that it has great fall resistance – specifically up to almost 2m in height.
Like the Nokia 2720, the 800 Tough also uses the KaiOS operating system. As it is a mobile phone to be used in extreme conditions, the buttons are easy to use even with gloves, and the battery can last up to 43 days in standby mode.
The latest model announced by HMD at IFA was the Nokia 110, a very basic mobile phone. In addition to making calls
