Nokia 7.2 now available for pre-order in the US
HMD Global's most recent mid-range Android smartphone, the Nokia 7.2 is finally available for pre-order in the United States. The device popped up on B&H Video's store last week, but customers couldn't order one and the retailer didn't have a launch date at that time.

Starting today, you can pre-order the Nokia 7.2 for $350 via B&H Video, but your phone won't ship until September 30. Best Buy lists the Nokia 7.2 as well, but you can't pre-order one yet, so you'll have to come back later if you don't like ordering stuff from B&H Video.

The Nokia 7.2 is available in two colors – Charcoal and Cyan Green, but customers who pre-order one will also receive 3 months of unlimited talk & text, as well as 8GB data per month on the Mint mobile network for free ($60 value).

If you plan to buy the Nokia 7.2, you should know that while the phone comes unlocked, it's only compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. Sadly, the device will not work with Sprint and Verizon.

Here are all the highlights of the Nokia 7.2: 6.3-inch fullHD+ display, triple camera powered by ZEISS optics, 2GHZ octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, fingerprint sensor, and 3,500 mAh battery.

Awesome. This is one gorgeous looking smartphone. Both the Cyan and the Charcoal colors look great. This is a great, competitive price too, which puts it right in competition with the Pixel 3A line. I’m looking forward to the reviews of performance, camera prowess and the like, but the winner by far in the design/build quality category is the Nokia 7.2. The extra ROM is a welcome addition, as is the 3500 mAh battery. I’m eager to see what camera optimizations HMD and Zeiss have been working on together for this one. This will no doubt be the 2nd best Nokia branded smartphone available stateside (after the Nokia 9 Pureview), and I will be adding it to my smartphone collection.

Well the company have been showing seriousness about their products since her resurrection few years ago. Spec wise they have shown serious fights with other OEMs but the network cat for downlink and uplink are still below acceptable normos compares to others. Cat 6 is very low and this is disadvantage for network download and upload capabilities.

Agree that they have been showing seriousness when it comes to putting out smartphones. As far as network downlink and uplink speeds go, that's not something the average user is going to even be aware of, much less concerned with.

Galaxy A70 has a better processor at almost the same price

True. But the 7.2 will undoubtedly have better and longer software support through full OS and security updates.

P. S. Apparently you're not allowed to have an opinion on Nokia devices.

OneLove123, Apparently you’re not allowed to point out the strength of any smartphone brand around here without someone getting insulted.

Apparently you can’t post the truth without triggering someone.

I guess that means the alpha is triggered since as you can see you can't have an opinion without an aggressive approach from overzealous fanboys.

I guess it means that the one shedding tears like mxyptlk does when he’s sent back to the fifth dimension after being outwitted by Superman is a flash-in-the-pan overzealous fanboy that can’t stand for anyone to have an opinion they don’t agree with so they go on the attack, as you can see.

I guess you have to resort to projecting and deflecting when you're put on the spot. Amazing how people continue to make stuff up just to further their bs agenda but I should have realized that is what geek does.

As you can see, some people have to resort to changing the facts to suit your false narrative, as they are only ones deflecting and projecting. Amazing how people have to make up BS in order to further their agenda, but that’s clearly what 5th dimension imps do.

While I am disappointed that once again Nokia is leaving out carrier support for Sprint and Verizon much like how Motorola does, I am still glad to see that the 7.2 is looking awesome and will definitely be the best Nokia phone ever available in the US. Definitely going to consider copping this jawn.

It’s great to see HMD continuing their push into the U.S. market, proving those wrong that said they’d leave the U.S. market out. The 7.2 is definitely the best Nokia branded smartphone available in the U.S. market after the Nokia 9 Pureview. Can’t wait to get this.

Nokia is slowly starting to get more presence in the US market with better phones that aren't just foodstamp phones. The 7.2 will easily be the best Nokia phone available in the US just for the fact that it has a FPS, headphone jack, and a micro sd card slot. Those three are important features to some users.

Hmm interesting that Nokia doesn't support Band 71 with the 7.2. Just thought I'd share that since the Pixel 3A XL does.

HMD has had its presence increased in the U.S. for some time now. That’s evident by their smartphones being on two U.S. carriers, and they have a wide range of smartphones from the low end like the Nokia 2V to top of their smartphone range in the Nokia 9 Pureview available in the U.S. market. With the Nokia 9 Pureview easily being the best smartphone they offer worldwide (including the U.S.), the 7.2 is undoubtedly their second best option in the U.S., with the 8.1 being their 2nd best smartphone overall. And with HMD launching the 7.2 with a headphone jack, a *physical FPS (they all have FPS of some type) and an SD card slot, it’s interesting to see Google launching its Pixel 4 range without any of the above. I’m wondering what will be said about that by those that favor Google, but bash other smartphones for lacking those things now that Google is launching a smartphone without them?

Another thing that midrange Nokia branded smartphones offer is IP53 splash resistance. While obviously not as good as IP68 water resistance, it’s still a good thing to have. Thought I’d mention it since other smartphones in that range rarely offer it, and I don’t recall the Pixel 3A line even offering it.

Amazing how some people are so threatened by choice despite complaining about not having enough choices with Huawei getting rightfully banned. There are more than two carriers in the United States. As for the best Nokia phone available in the US, that is a matter of OPINION, not fact. I don't give a rat's arse about what specs the Pureview has. If it doesn't do what the consumer wants, then it is not the best. End of story. The 7.2 will be the best Nokia phone available in the US imo because it has a physical FPS and a headphone jack along with a micro sd card slot. I don't have to deflect like some people are doing by taking potshots at other OEMs just because they are bothered by the facts.

I think having support for Band 71 is more important than worrying about a fee numbers that won't really matter when it comes to coverage.

It’s incredible how people feel so threatened by others posting verifiable facts about smartphones simply because the facts don’t line up with their narrative, like some do here over the plethora of issues that Google has been having with its Pixel line, for example. There are more than two carriers in the U.S. that Nokia branded smartphones can and are used on, and even with them being able to be used on T-Mobile and AT&T, as well as being sold by Verizon, just to name three. It’s a FACT that the best Nokia branded smartphone available in the world, not just the U.S., is the Nokia 9 Pureview. This is evident by the superior specs, features, and performance. The facts don’t care about what one doesn’t give a rats arse about. That’s why they are the facts. And the Nokia 9 Pureview does exactly what every other Nokia branded smartphone does performance and camera wise, and MORE, which is what the consumers care about. That’s also what makes it the best Nokia branded smartphone available today. End of story. The 7.2 will be the 3rd best Nokia branded smartphone available, after the Nokia 9 and Nokia 8.1. Its very hypocritical to say that one smartphone will be better than the other because of a headphone jack, physical FPS, and micro sd card slot, when said individuals favorite OEM is removing such things on their upcoming flagship. Using that logic, said individuals have to keep that same energy and say that smartphones that possess those things are better than it, but that won’t happen. It’s also hilarious that said individuals claim that others deflect by taking potshots at other OEM’s, when the same individuals were just yesterday seen attacking OEM’s like OnePlus because someone they don’t agree with uses their products. They are too disturbed by the facts.

I think having physical attributes that will come in very handy to the everyday user like those *few numbers are important than worrying about a band that won’t protect your smartphone from everyday mishaps that can damage it beyond repair.
