Nokia 6.2 rumor lists specs, reveals possible pricing & announcement timeline

Nokia 6.2 rumor lists specs, reveals possible pricing & announcement timeline
The Nokia 9 PureView

The original Nokia 6 landed in January 2017 and its successor, the Nokia 6.1, debuted twelve months later. Consequently, the announcement of this year’s Nokia 6.2 was first expected to take place in January but rumors later mentioned an introduction at MWC 2019 in February.

Fast forward to the present day and Nokia’s new 6-series smartphone is yet to be unveiled. But thanks to a new rumor we now know when it might be announced, how much it could cost, and what specs it may offer. 
Snapdragon processor, three rear cameras, and more

Kicking things off with a look at the smartphone’s insides, earlier reports mentioned the presence of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 632. However, according to the newest info, HMD Global’s next phone will adopt the older yet more powerful Snapdragon 660 that was used inside last year’s Nokia 7 Plus.

Accompanying the chip as standard should be 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The latter should be expandable via microSD cards and if users are looking for a slightly snappier experience, a variant with 6GB of RAM will reportedly be made available too.

In regards to the Nokia 6.2’s external design, it’s suggested the smartphone will be a slightly smaller version of the China-only Nokia X71. Specifically, a 6-inch AMOLED display complete with a cutout and a Full-HD+ (2280×1080) resolution is listed. Paired with this should be a rear vertical camera setup that’s home to a 20-megapixel main snapper, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

Other features should include stock Android 9 Pie pre-installed as part of the Android One program and a 3,300mAh battery.
Nokia 6.2 announcement, release date, and price

According to the latest rumors, HMD Global will announce the Nokia 6.2 at some point next month alongside the physically identical Nokia 7.2. An exact release date hasn’t yet been revealed but it’s suggested the Nokia 6.2 will retail at 1199 Yuan and 1499 Yuan in China for the 4GB and 6GB variants respectively. These prices equate to €156 and €195 if converted directly, but the final retail prices in Europe will probably be slightly higher, perhaps in the region of €179 and €219.

Love the design language of the Nokia 6 series, so I'm eager to add the 6.2 to my collection as a back up phone.

Hmm this looks interesting. The 6.1 was a mediocre phone but this looks like a good step up. That 6GB of RAM should be more than enough and with the 660 this should be very snappy unlike its predecessor. Now we just have to see if Nokia will actually release it in the states or will we just continue to get the foodstamp phones.

The Nokia 6 series is HMD’s best selling line, as told by HMD themselves. That’s far from “mediocre”, and the 6.1 is clearly part of the 6 Series. Performance on the 6.1 was decent too. HMD also sells a few phones here in the United States that aren’t “food stamp” phone: Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7.1 and their most powerful and overall best smartphone, the Nokia 9 Pureview, are all available here in the U.S. Some people just like to complain for the sake of complaining and attacking something without fact checking first.

The 6.1 was a a well built phone but it unfortunately was not the snappiest experience. Fact. Performance was less than stellar on the 6.1 and some people just need to get over it and stop second guessing everyone. Nokia has the awesome 7.1 and the Nokia 9, but there's nothing wrong with wanting something later.

The hardware design of the Nokia 6.1 is better than many smartphones above its price range, and it has good performance for the specs it has. Fact. Those that say otherwise when it’s clear that they have never owned the phone need to get over it and stop second guessing everyone. HMD has the awesome Nokia 7.1 and the better by far Nokia 9 Pureview, and I’m sure the Nokia 6.2 will follow suit and join its older Nokia 6 series siblings and be available in the U.S.

The Nokia 6.1 could have been a great experience, but it wasn't and some people still can't get over it without shedding the tears of salt. Its performance was not as good as it could have been and that's a fact that many people have shared on Amazon and Best Buy. The Nokia 6.2 sounds like it could be a better experience.

The Nokia 6.1 has been a good experience, but some people can’t get fort the fact that it was without being triggered into a frenzy. It’s performance was better than what some that have never had or used the device are saying, and that’s a fact shared by many reviewers. The 6.2 will of course be a better experience, and will be a better experience some competitors like the Pixel 3A, through user experience since Nokia branded smartphones have less issues than the Pixel line on a whole.
