Nokia 7.2 Kenya
Nokia 7.2 Family

HMD Global has announced that the Nokia 7.2 is officially on sale in the country. It is available both in retail stores, and at Safaricom Shops. It comes in two color options: Cyan Green and Charcoal grey.

The announcement comes two weeks after both the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 pre-orders opened.

In an official press release, the company says of the Nokia 7.2: [This] is the first Nokia smartphone to combine a triple camera and PureDisplay. The device features a powerful 48MP triple camera with Quad Pixel technology and ZEISS Optics. Nokia 7.2 also premiers a range of ZEISS bokeh styles, exclusive to Nokia smartphones, that recreate the way legendary ZEISS lenses produce high visual impact and signature blur. Alongside even more AI-powered features such as night mode, fans can get even more creative with their stories. Building on the strengths of its predecessor, Nokia 7.2 combines stunning PureDisplay technology and always-on HDR, with timeless Nordic design to redefine what fans should expect from this smartphone segment.

At the price, the phone feels very expensive, and doesn’t really immediately show value for money – except maybe for the HDR10 display. How HMD will try and convince people to buy a phone with a Snapdragon 660, 4GB RAM, and a meagre 3500mAh battery for over 33K remains to be seen. There’s currently many more competitive devices that sell for much less, or even for the same price range but with better specifications.

What are your thoughts on the Nokia 7.2? Would you buy it for KES. 34,000?

  1. Just bought a Nokia phone 5.1plus it’s so disappointing it hugs all the time and it lost its selfie camera and the main Cera in just two weeks ,never again will I go for nokia

  2. I wish the camera had the OIS. Another let down is the 3500mah batt.For that price,the batt should be around 4000 mah. Let me wait for 8.2

  3. For that chipset, battery, plastic frame, rear fingerprint…NO. it is a ripoff. With their flagship products they did well 5,6,7and 8 series. But now they seem to have no charm going forward considering the competition.

  4. Perhaps they are banking on the Nokia & Zeiss brand coz otherwise, a Redmi Note 7 from Xiaomi packs the same camera and processor for as little as 21k

  5. Awesome design, it feels good on hand. Quite an improvement from its predecessor, the Nokia 7.1. The ultra wide camera doesn’t take really good shots and has focus issues. About the chipset, Snapdragon 660 is good for a midranger but at least an upgrade would be better from a 2 year old chipset. Overally, it’s a good all round phone for its price. One of the best Android One devices in the market currently.

  6. The problem is they are launching a phone with 2016 tech in 2019 and expect to sell. They need to know that Nokia as a brand lost its appeal ages ago. They will have to rebuild the name & at this rate they won’t at such price points for almost outdated tech on phones

  7. The 3500mAh battery power is actually a downgrade considering its predecessors, Nokia 2 for instance, had a 4100mAh battery power! The plastic frame is also a rip-off, since the entry sets were mostly Aluminum. Plus HMD Nokia is still sluggish in improving the RAM, which is always the least announced feature in their packaging, when selling or displaying specs.
