Separately, as we inch closer to the launch, the Nokia 7.2 4GB RAM variant has been spotted passing by Geekbench after the 6GB RAM option. This means the phone could be available in two memory variants – 4GB and 6GB options. It managed to score 1597 in single-core test and 5204 in multi-core, in-line with the 6GB model. The handset runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and could be a part of the Android One program. The Nokia 7.2 is expected to be powered by either Snapdragon 660 SoC or the Snapdragon 710 chipset, coupled with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display that might have HDR10 support.
The recent live images leak revealed the Nokia 7.2 would have a waterdrop notch to accommodate the selfie snapper. At the rear, there is a triple camera setup with LED flash arranged in a circular module. While it isn’t confirmed, the Nokia 7.2 could have a 48MP primary sensor, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a depth unit. A 3,500mAh battery with fast charging support is expected to fuel the phone. The recent price leak from two online retailers in Chile suggests the 4GB RAM variant of the Nokia 7.2 price could be $249 (about Rs 18,000), while the 6GB RAM model is listed at $274 (roughly Rs 20,000). Since this isn’t from a reliable source, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt.
