“The Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 clear cases show the phones will have circular camera module, fingerprint sensor on the back, and a dedicated hardware key that may be used to fire up Google Assistant”
Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 are expected to launch at HMD Global’s IFA 2019 event in a matter of a few days and right ahead of the unveiling, some live images of the clear cases for the said handsets have leaked on the internet and revealed their designs in their entirety. Notably, the clear case images show a circular (keyhole-shaped to be more precise) cutout for the camera module and suggest that the handset will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a feature that cannot be taken for granted with modern smartphones.
Probably the most interesting aspect of the freshly leaked images, shared by popular tipster Roland Quandt, is that the same case has been marked for both Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, which suggests that both these handsets will share a similar design, which was also indicated by earlier leaks. Quandt said in his tweet that there will be a fingerprint sensor on the rear and the case looks thick. Apart from the volume rocker and power keys, the live images of the clear case indicate that there will be another button on the handset, which could be customisable or be used just to launch Google Assistant.
The Nokia 6.2 is expected to flaunt a 6.4-inch full-HD+ display and is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage for the base model. On the other hand, Nokia 7.2 might ship with Snapdragon 710 SoC, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage. A 3,500mAh battery is said to fuel the Nokia 7.2, which can be wrong if the new information is anything to go by.
These handsets could also be a part of the Android One program and are likely to run on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Since these specifications are based on leaks and rumours, we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt. Apart from Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, the brand is also expected to launch the Nokia 5.2 at the event, and the handset is expected to come with a relatively underpowered Snapdragon 632 processor. All these smartphones are expected to come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.
