Nokia 7.2 gets triple camera system
The latest handset from Nokia packs a 48MP triple camera system with Zeiss optics, as well as a PureDisplay screen.
HMD Global, maker of Nokia phones, has announced the Nokia 7.2, the first Nokia smartphone to combine a triple camera and PureDisplay. It features a 48MP triple camera with Quad Pixel technology and Zeiss Optics. It also introduces 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 more AI-powered features such as night mode, users can get more creative with their photography. Building on the strengths of its predecessor, Nokia 7.2 combines PureDisplay technology and always-on HDR.
Shaun Durandt, GM of HMD Global Southern Africa, says: “With the Nokia 7.2 we aim to push the limits on what consumers can get from one of our popular Nokia 7 series smartphones. The Nokia 7.2 offers consumers advanced tools to express their creativity. Everything from the Zeiss Optics, exclusive Zeiss bokeh modes and powerful AI imaging, to its breath-taking PureDisplay technology, makes the Nokia 7.2 a device that truly stands out. In combination with the beautifully patterned satin glass back, Nokia 7.2 packs design innovation and stunning imaging performance, with a two-day battery life, into a smartphone for aspiring creators across the world at a truly incredible price.”
Nokia 7.2 is the first in the Nokia smartphone portfolio to feature a triple camera set up with Zeiss Optics. This is a combination of a highly sensitive 48MP sensor with a Quad Pixel technology main camera with ZEISS Optics, an ultrawide camera and a depth camera. The Quad Pixel technology combines four pixels into one for enhanced images in most conditions.
The new bokeh styles include a portrait mode, which uses powerful image processing to recreate the way Zeiss lenses produce high visual impact. These blur effects are called Zeiss Modern, Zeiss Swirl and Zeiss Smooth modes. Add beautification to improve skin tones for instantly shareable portraits. AI-powered night mode allows users to capture the moment in low light, combining image fusion and explosion stacking to deliver good low light performance.
It comes with an ultrawide camera, which has a 118-degree field of view that means users can fit a lot more in one shot. The selfie camera also features Zeiss optics with a 20MP.
With a dedicated Pixelworks visual processor, Nokia 7.2 upscales video content to HDR quality in real-time, with up to a billion shades of colour, higher contrast and expanded dynamic range. This means users can enjoy more contrast and deeper colours when watching TV shows, compared to other displays.
Crafted from polymer composite that is twice as strong as polycarbonate and half the weight of aluminium, the device is light, yet super strong and rigid.
Nokia 7.2’s light-diffusing satin glass back honours the Finnish glass making heritage and results in a premium finish. Using a multilayer coating system with vacuum metallisation, the result delivers bright colours, a smooth finish and offers durability.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, the device offers balanced performance, making sure the phone is ready when users need it the most. The Nokia 7.2 also comes with the signature two-day battery life promise.
As part of the Android One partnership, Nokia 7.2 is Android Q ready and will receive guaranteed monthly security updates for three years and OS updates for two years, so it is claimed to get better performance over time.
Pricing and availability
The Nokia 7.2 comes in Charcoal and is available at Vodacom stores on 20 November from R6,299.
