    Nokia 7.2, 6.2, 2720, 800 hands-on review


    Nokia just announced a handful of devices and we were there to spend some brief moments with them. Two Android midrangers lead the way, but there are also a couple of feature phones that are nice throwbacks to simpler times.

    Nokia 7.2 specsSpeaking of fights, the Nokia 800 Tough could take some serious beating. It's got MIL-STD-810G compliance, an IP68 rating ans is waterproof for up to 30 minutes under 1.5m of water. It's not exactly a stunner, and boots KaiOS as opposed to Android, but still has Facebook, Whatsapp, Google Assistant and whatnot.

    We'll start with the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2, two visually very similar handsets, each with a 6.3-inch LCD in a dual-glass package. They both have triple cameras on their backs with different main modules and shared 8MP ultra wides and 5MP depth sensors. The more upmarket 7.2 is equipped with a 48MP Quad Pixel (or, you know, Quad Bayer) cam while the 6.2 packs a conventional 16MP unit.
