Nokia 6.2 could arrive this month with display hole and Snapdragon 632

The original Nokia 6 arrived in January 2017 and was succeeded just over a year later by the current-gen Nokia 6.1. And now, according to one tipster, a new version could be just around the corner.

Expected to launch as the Nokia 6.2, the upcoming smartphone’s external characteristics are said to include a large 6.2-inch display that boasts hole-in-display technology. Presumably, this panel will be similar to the one found on the upcoming Nokia 8.1 Plus, albeit with slightly thicker bezels.

In addition to the display, the smartphone reportedly features a dual 16-megapixel camera setup on the rear which will be combined with OZO Audio support. Essentially, this means that multiple microphones will be combined with acoustic algorithms to enable audio capture with immersive 360º spatial surround sound.

Moving on to the internal, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 632 is to be expected alongside either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Storage configurations remain unconfirmed at the moment but a 64GB model is extremely likely. Similarly, stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box as part of the Android One program is to be expected.

According to the source, the Nokia 6.2 will make its debut in late January or early February. Initially, sales will be limited to China but availability should expand to Europe and the US soon after. 

As per usual, it’s worth taking this leak with a pinch of salt. It is worth noting, however, that HMD Global itself recently signaled the incoming release of a new model by lowering the price of the Nokia 6.1 to €159 in certain European markets.

While notches don’t bother me, the “All-Screen” design with very minimal bezel with no notch has been growing on me. The hole in the display won’t bother me as long as it’s done for functional purposes.

I don't like the pinhole gimmick going around. I did like the 6.1 as I thought it was a well built phone, but it was marred by 3gb of RAM and only 32GB of storage leading to some lag and stuttering. There's no reason why the US market shouldn't get the 64GB model. Just my thoughts on the matter.

The 6.1 lagged due to Sd 630 and not due to Ram/Rom. But the 632 has A73 cores so it might not lag as much.

Yeah well I still prefer to have the better storage option. The added memory helps despite the contrary.

Those of us that have actually used the the Nokia 6.1 know that it performed quite well with only 3gb of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. The fact that it was Android One and no bloat was a great factor in this. Some people are just actually exposing their own insecurities about OEM’s that they favor when they say the contrary. Some people also don’t understand that OEM’s push the bulk of their resources where they are most profitable, and put the best of their products where they are most profitable. This is just business 101, and I can’t understand why some take it so personal when a market that an OEM is less profitable in doesn’t get the same products as one that they are more profitable in. Just my thoughts on the matter.

I agree with what you’re saying, man. That sd 630 isn’t going to perform like a SoC that is more powerful. I think that’s where it gets confused as lag. It’s moving along, but it’s just not moving like something that can go faster due to it having more power. The storage is more than adequate for an android one phone. But it’s like you say, if you really used it before and know about, then you already know this. The business 101 part is just common sense if you know business.

Thanks. You understand, and I'm sure even though you've only been here a short time that you can see exactly what's going on.

So just because it's Android One means that I can't say that it deserves more storage? That's just ridiculous. It doesn't matter what Android platform it's on, but more storage and RAM is always going to be better and that's a fact.

What he said was absolutely correct. Being that there is no bloat on the Nokia 6.1, 3 gigs of RAM is more than adequate. You're just trying to make an issue where there is none, and complain for the sake of complaining.
