A big Nokia phone announcement is happening on June 6th
CAD-based renders of what could be the Nokia 6.2

After previously announcing plans for an event in India on the same day, HMD Global has now sent out invites to a separate event happening in Milan, Italy on June 6th. The company hasn’t specified its plans, but all rumors point towards the global debut of two important phones – the Nokia 5.2 and Nokia 6.2.

As their names indicate, the devices will succeed last year’s Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 6.1 respectively and, as such, will represent the latest mid-range offerings from the brand. Unfortunately for us, very little is known about the Nokia 5.2 at this stage. However, previous leaks about the Nokia 6.2 do give us a pretty good idea of what will be on offer.

Much like the China-only Nokia X71 that was announced last month, the Nokia 6.2 is expected to arrive equipped with a punch hole display paired with minimal bezels and a small chin. According to leaked details, though, the diagonal of the display will shrink slightly to 6.2-inches, coincidentally matching the name of the phone.

Over on the rear, the Nokia 6.2 is set to adopt the brand’s usual glass build and vertical camera setup. In this particular case, two individual sensors paired with an LED flash and a fingerprint scanner are rumored.

Rounding out the smartphone’s package will apparently be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 632 paired with 4GB of RAM and stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box. Ultimately, pricing remains to be seen, but the internal details match those of the Motorola Moto G7, one of the best budget devices around.

Looking forward to adding the Nokia 6.2 to my collection. Really liking the design on that one.

Boring Nokia!! Why are you releasing the same phone over and over again?! Let’s have some innovation please!!

Then don't buy it, clear as day, go overspend on some LG with a display that can't hold up for more than two years.

LG phones have a tendency to not hold up to well. That probably explains why they depreciate faster than a bad president's approval ratings.

They tried that and well it failed at doing the thing it was supposed to be innovating. The view isn't as pure as you think.

They didn’t fail at innovating with the Pureview. It has features concerning its cameras that other smartphones do not, like that amount of information captured with each photo. That’s a lot better, than say, releasing the same old phone with dumbed down specs like the Pixel 3A/3AXL, lol.

You're the only one who name dropped the Pureview lol. You're getting defensive about the Pureview again. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. If a bigger battery, headphone jack, same camera as the Pixel 3 is considered dumbed down, then you have questionable standards which is funny considering the Pureview is a massive disappointment.

Lmao you literally mentioned “View” and “pure”. Everyone knows what you were referring to. The statement was as transparent as a ghost. You’re getting aggressive against the Pureview again, and it show. It’s you that don’t know what you’re talking about, because if issues continuing to crop out out of the gate as well as literally releasing the same old phone as the phone with dumbed down specs compared to the Pixel 3 is what you think is good, with issues in tow, then you have questionable standards. And a Pixel fan can’t talk about disappointment, because that’s what the entire Pixel line has been thanks to the beyond poor QC from Google.

Those renders look fantastic. Let's hope the final design follows suit. The only thing that would put a phone like this over the top for me would be an oled display...

Don’t they, though? HMD has some of the best designed smartphones around. Other design teams like Google’s Pixel design team need to take notes from them.

I have to agree - for the most part I definitely like Nokia's design language more than Google's.

Yeah, if there was an HMD/Nokia Mobile designed Pixel (minus the plethora of bugs, lol) I'd be hard pressed not to pick one up.

Yup, and I'd suggest Google buy HMD Global to get that done. Oh wait, I forgot, look what happened to the last company that took over Nokia's phone division... ;)

Lmao or look at what happened to the last phone company that Google bought, lol.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Motorola. Lol, In that case the Finns should be wary of anybody knocking on their door with a Google logo on a briefcase.

"(minus the plethora of bugs, lol)" You mean like the Pureview?

Pureview doesn’t have nearly as many issues as the Pixel line. Every Pixel that Google has released has had a plethora of issues. You’re getting defensive about the Pixel again, btw.

I actually like the design of the 6.1 I had. That black and copper look was fantastic. I only wished that it had better specs otherwise I would have kept it.

I agree, that copper trim look was fantastic. And if the new 6.2 comes out with a higher end 6 series SD then it will definitely give the Pixel 3a a run for it's money. Especially if priced cheaper. - Pros for the Nokia will be screen real estate, sd card slot, and hopefully less bugs. - Pros for the Pixel are Oled display, and camera quality. Just some of my thoughts anyway.

Subie, I love the design language of the Nokia 6 line. It’s my favorite from HMD, design wise. Glad I actually own both the Nokia 6 and Nokia 6.1. I’m looking forward to adding the 6.2 to my collection. Nokia branded smartphones routinely have less issues than the Pixel line. That’s a documented fact, so I expect that to hold true with the 6.2. Just my honest thoughts on the matter. ;)

Bang on the money MG. I also like what they've done with the 7 line.

I have to say, the design looks great and it sounds good on paper. I see some comparisons to the Moto G7 which is a good phone itself although Motorola support is atrocious. I don't see this replacing my Pixel 3A XL though since it has far more band support than this device will.
