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.
