HMD Global brought more phones than most IFA 2019 exhibitors – a total of five, including two Android One smartphones, two KaiOS phones and a feature phone.
The Nokia 7.2 is the leader of the pack. It’s the first Nokia with a triple camera and the first with a 48MP sensor available in the West (only the China-only X71 came before it). That’s several more megapixels than the 808 PureView had, not to mention several more cameras.
The Nokia 6.2 is very nearly the same phone, complete with HMD’s polymer composite build that’s tougher than polycarbonate, but lighter than aluminum. The HDR10 screen promises to bring to life even SDR content.
The Nokia 2720 Flip shows that you can teach an old form factor new tricks. Flip phones all but disappeared as smartphones took over, but this isn’t your ordinary flip – it runs KaiOS and features Google Maps, WhatsApp, Facebook and more apps.
The Nokia 800 Tough is the stuff of memes – “Nokia 3310 is indestructible” memes. While the old phone never had official durability ratings, the Tough boasts IP68 and MIL-STD-810G badges. Both it and the Flip feature GPS receivers, which also sets them apart from feature phones of old.
Finally, the Nokia 110 is an upgraded Nokia 105 – and we’re talking some major upgrades here, considering this is a $20 phone. It has a card slot so it can play MP3s (up to 32GB), there’s a camera (the most basic 320 x 240px camera) and some games pre-installed (Snake is free, Doodle is a demo).
