It has been a rather quiet year from Nokia, and we are glad to finally see Nokia 6.2 hitting the ground running as we speak. A year and a half has passed since its predecessor’s release, will it bear some good news for us?

Before we begin, let’s do a quick throwback to last year’s Nokia 6.1:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio or ~403 PPI density
  • Front glass, aluminium body (6000 series)
  • 2.5D curved display
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, Octa-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 508 graphics and 4GB RAM
  • 16MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, 27mm, 1.0µm, PDAF, Carl Zeiss optics, dual-LED dual-tone flash, panorama and HDR
  • 8MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12µm
  • 64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 128GB

  • Android Oreo 8.1 with Android One
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • April 2018 release date
  • 235 USD price tag

Nokia 6.1 had a lot going on for it in the mid-range segment, as the plain vanilla Android One was one of its highlights.

Now then, where will the Nokia 6.2 stand as we are nearing towards the end of the year? Check out its specs as per below:

  • 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2280 pixels, 19:9 ratio or ~400 PPI density
  • PureDisplay
  • Front/back glass (Gorilla Glass 3), plastic frame
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Qualcomm SDM636 Snapdragon 636 (14 nm) chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 processor, Adreno 509 graphics and 3GB/4GB RAM
  • Triple primary camera: 16MP with f/1.8 aperture, 27mm (wide), 1.0µm and PDAF + 8MP with f/2.2 aperture and 13mm (ultrawide) + 5MP with depth sensor, LED flash, panorama and HDR
  • 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1/4", 1.12µm and HDR
  • 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 512GB
  • Non-removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery
  • Android Pie 9.0 with Android One
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • October 2019 expected release date
  • 199 Euro or ~220 USD estimated price tag for the 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage variant and 249 Euro or ~275 USD estimated price tag for the 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage variant

As we glance through the Nokia 6.2, we can see there’s a lot of improvements here and there. Starting with the larger 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS screen and inspired by Finnish design, it fuses craftsmanship and quality materials in a perfect balance.

In terms of hardware, the Snapdragon 636 brings a nice update together with the fast Kryo octa-core processor, decent graphics and either 3GB or 4GB of memory.

Perhaps the star of the show is on its triple primary camera, to be exact the 16MP+8MP+5MP camera setup. You will be spending countless hours on it, and snapping away freely through the course of your daily life. Then there’s the 8MP selfie camera completing the package.

Battery-wise, the Nokia 6.2 gets a nice bump up in battery size with the 3500 mAh battery now powering up the smartphone. It should have no problem to supply enough juice to last it for a full of charge.

As for the software, it is good to know that it now comes with the latest Android Pie 9.0 operating system equipped with Android One. Everything will run more smoothly, as there won’t be any bloatware to slow you down. You can also look forward to the upcoming Android 10 and an additional three years of security updates – which further extends its shelf life.

Conclusion:

Nokia 6.2 is a nice upgrade for this year, and it does bring a host of improvements to keep us updated with the times. Large 6.3-inch IPS screen, great looks, good mid-range performance, great triple primary camera, decent battery size and the Android One operating system makes for a compelling package.

Nokia 6.2 is expected to be released very soon on October 2019 for an estimated price tag of 199 Euro or ~220 USD for the 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage variant and 249 Euro or ~275 USD for the 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage variant. It is said to be available in two colours, namely Ceramic Black and Ice.
