Nokia has been teasing the launch of a new smartphone in India since some time now. The launch event is slated to commence today at 11:30 AM and the company might be gearing up to announce the Nokia 5.2, Nokia 6.2 and/or the Nokia 9 Pureview(₹ 13999 at Tatacliq) smartphones. While it isn't confirmed that the smartphone maker will announce three new phones, it is surely a possibility since a launch event is happening today in Italy as well. Additionally, going by the teasers Nokia India is posting on its Twitter page, it is more likely that the Nokia 5.2 or the Nokia 6.2 will be announced in the country.
HMD Global may announce a global variant of its Nokia X71 smartphone that was announced in Taiwan a couple of months ago. The handset could be called the Nokia 6.2 and is expected to feature the same specs as the Nokia X71. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and comes with 6GB RAM. It is expected to launch running on Android 9 Pie and thanks to Google's Android One programme, it should receive regular software updates for up to two years after launch. The phone was recently spotted on Geekbench where it scored 1455 on the Single-Core test and 5075 on the Multi-Core test. In comparison, the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 powered by the same chipset scores 1642 and 5796 on the same two tests respectively.
The Nokia X71 features a 6.39-inch Full HD+ PureDisplay that has punch-hole design. The front camera is placed at the top-left edge of the display. USP of the Nokia 6.2 is expected to be its triple-rear camera setup. The handset is said to come equipped with a 48MP sensor made either by Sony or Samsung. The other two should take on wide-angle photography and depth sensing tasks. The device could feature 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card. The battery on it is said to be a 3,500mAh unit with an 18W fast-charging setup.
The Nokia 9 PureView comes equipped with a 5.99-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It sports a P-OLED display that supports HDR10 with 2K resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It comes equipped with an under-display fingerprint sensor as well. Under the hood, the smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which is coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The phone runs on Android 9 Pie and is backed by a 3320mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3 and USB Power Delivery, along with 10W wireless charging. The phone does not have a 3.5mm jack. The handset is rated IP67 for water and dust resistance.
In terms of optics, the Nokia 9 Pureview sports five 12MP cameras on the back. Three of the five cameras feature monochrome sensors while the other two are RGB sensors. There’s an additional ToF depth sensor and a dual-tone LED flash in the module. All five sensors sport fixed focal length of 28mm and the smartphone clicks an image from all five cameras simultaneously. Nokia claims that the cameras deliver a 12.4-stops of dynamic range for a more detailed image. On the front, the Nokia 9 Pureview gets a 20MP camera with f/1.8 aperture lens, which supports 4-in-1 pixel binning.
