The Nokia 6.2 is a Nokia branded Android smartphone announced on the 6th of September at IFA 2019[1] launching at €199 for the cheapest model and €249 for the more expensive one[2]

Notable Changes from Nokia 6.1[edit]

Cameras[edit]

The Nokia 6.2 has 3 cameras instead of 1, due to the addition of an ultrawide sensor which has 0.6x zoom of the main camera, and a depth sensor[3].

The phone also now has a dedicated night mode, which "helps improve low-light photography."[4]

Design/Exterior[edit]

The display is now a 19:9 aspect ratio rather than 16:9 and has smaller bezels, along with a dewdrop notch at the top[5]. The 6.2 also has a larger screen, 99.1cm²(6.2") instead of 82.6²(5.5"), a 20% increase in screen area.[6] Due to the taller but not wider screen, the 6.2 has a taller body while retaining an almost identical width and thickness[6]. The display is now HDR10 certified with 1 billion colours and real time SDR to HDR conversion[2][5] Another big addition on the Nokia 6.2 is the Nokia face iD, which is made by Truly Secure[7]. It is more secure than standard android face unlock[8] and can unlock the phone straight to the home screen, rather than a user having to swipe up after unlocking as was the case on the Nokia 6.1. A minor difference worth noting is that the 6.2 is a little bit heavier, 180g vs 172g[9]

The phone now comes with a "Multilayer coating for a smooth metallic finish."[5] and a "light-diffusing satin glass back." rather than the milled aluminium 6000 back found in the 6.1 and 6.[9]

Another change on the exterior of the phone is the addition of a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left of the phone which can be pressed to quickly activate the Google Assistant or held and released for the Google Assistant to start and stop listening. It can also be re-mapped in settings to open an app of your choice[10][11]

Internals[edit]

The 6.2 has a more powerful Soc, the Snapdragon 636 rather than 630[3]. The 6.2 comes with a 3500 mAh battery, while the 6.1 has 3060 mAh[3]. It now has 512 GB expandable storage rather than 128[3][12]. The only change made which would almost universally be considered a downgrade is the removal of fast charging, which means the phone charges at 10 Watts not 18[6]. It could be argued that fast charging is not needed as much now the phone has a bigger battery, however it's still a feature which could come in useful[Citation needed].

Models[edit]

The €199 model comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage, whereas the €249 GB model comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage,[2] a more expensive model with 4GB RAM + 128 GB storage will be available in some countries in the future[13].

The Nokia 6.2 comes in two colours, Ceramic Black and Ice.[5]

Reception[edit]

Reviews for the Nokia 6.2 are mostly positive.

Techradar said the Nokia 6.2 "The Nokia 6.2 looks to be a strong contender at the affordable end of the Android smartphone market.[14]

Gizmochina gave the phone an 8.4 out of 10.[15]

Trusted Reviews said "the screen looks great – especially for this price." and "With its three cameras on the back, nice-looking display and Android One software, the Nokia 6.2 looks like it could be a rival to the Moto G series and the likes of Redmi, Realme and Honor."[16]

GSMarena said the "colours looked nice and outdoor visibility was okay" and said it's "reasonably well specced for the segment it needs to fight in." They also commented on the charging, saying "We're not too thrilled about the 5V/2A charging capabilities - it'll take a while to fill those 3,500mAh batteries."[17]
