Nokia introduces handset that costs less than 8000

On Thursday (5), HMD Global - a company licensed to use the Nokia brand - took advantage of IFA 2019 (Technology Fair held this week in Berlin, Germany) and presented five new Finnish-brand handsets, two smartphones and three more traditional cell phones. Thus, we bring here a summary of all that the company showed again at the event:

Nokia 7.2



A successor to Nokia 7.1, launched last year, the Nokia 7 .2 features its camera system made up of three Carl Zeiss lenses: a 48 MP main sensor, a wide-angle 8 MP sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor. In addition to using Quad Pixel technology to get better photos in low light, one of the main advantages of Nokia 7.2 is the Zeiss Swirl, Zeiss Modern and Zeiss Smooth modes, which allow you to recreate the bokeh effect of professional Carl lens cameras. Zeiss - and although the device only has a depth sensor at the rear, these modes can be used with both the rear and front cameras.

The handset also has a 6.3 inch screen with Full HD resolution and HDR support, which allows you to show more vivid colors and have a higher contrast between them. The screen also has a water drop notch, which is where the front camera 20 MP camera. The smartphone case is made of aluminum covered with a type of polymer, which is stronger than polycarbonate but lighter, ensuring that Nokia 7.2 is much tougher than its weight supposes. Both the screen and the case also have Gorilla Glass 3 protection, which protects against scratches caused by, for example, putting it in the same pocket of keys and coins.

On the hardware side, the device uses a Snapdragon 660 processor, has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. It also has a dedicated side button for calling Google Assistant, USB-C input, 3.5mm headphone jack connector and biometric reader. All of this is powered by a 3500 mAh battery.


The device also comes standard with Android 10 (the latest version of the operating system) installed, and is part of the Android One program, which ensures it will receive security updates for three years and, for the next two, will also receive the latest updates. Android system version updates.

Another interesting feature is “Environment Mode”, which turns the smartphone into a smart speaker, leaving the phone's microphones always open to receive voice commands from the user.

The Nokia 7.2 will be sold in Charcoal, Cyan Green and Ice, and will be available from September 29 for a price. $ 349 ($ 1,430 at today's price).

Nokia 6.2



The Nokia 6 .2 has the same external specifications of 7.2 - same screen size, same notch, same type of case, even protective material - and the difference between them is basically the hardware, which is slightly lower than the Nokia 6.2.

It uses a Snapdragon 636 processor, plus 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage and a biometric reader, all running on the same 3,500 mAh battery as the Nokia 7.2. It also comes standard with Android 10, so there are no differences in the software field either.




The main difference between the two models is the main rear camera, which in Nokia 6.2 is only 16 MP (the other two lenses are exactly the same as Nokia 7.2) and the lack of a headphone jack.


The device will only be available in Charcoal (Charcoal) and Ice (Ice) colors, and will be launched in early October for a price of US $ 228 (R $ 934).

Nokia 2720



The Nokia 2720 is a model made for those who like more traditional phones and do not give up having a flip handset.

The model is a kind of “hybrid” between a traditional mobile phone and a smartphone, with 4G connection and working with the KaiOS operating system, which allows access to some services and apps like Google Maps, Google Assistant, WhatsApp and YouTube .

While allowing access to these services, using them is not one of the easiest tasks. since neither of the two screens of the device (the internal 2.8-inch used for main navigation, and the external 1.3-inch used to view notifications received with the device closed) are not the largest and do not have touch function, since all navigation (and messaging) must be done via the physical / alphanumeric keypad as is standard on traditional mobile phones.



But both the keys and the font of the text that appear on the screen are quite large, so even without the touch function it's easy to navigate the menus of the device. One of the main advantages of this handset is its battery, which can last up to 27 days in standby mode - as the device does not have to run as many features as a normal smartphone would. Plus, of course, you can end a call just by closing the phone, giving that dramatic twist that has been lost on today's smartphones.

The Nokia 2720 will hit stores in September, will be available in black and white and is expected to cost around $ 97.

Nokia 800 Tough



Now if you need a real tough phone, the Nokia 800 Tough may be what you are looking for. This device not only has IP68 degree of protection (ie it is completely impervious to dust and continuous immersion in water), but also meets MIL-STD-810G military test criteria, meaning that the device not only It is resistant to exposure and climate change (sun, rain, snow, thermal shocks caused by sudden temperature changes) but even more extreme conditions such as continuing to operate in environments where shootings and bomb blasts occur.

Because it is rubber-edged equipment, it also means that it has great fall resistance - specifically up to almost 2 m high in concrete.



Like the Nokia 2720, the 800 Tough also uses the KaiOS operating system, which lets you access some apps like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and WhatsApp . As it is a cell phone for extreme use, the buttons are easy to use even with gloves, and the battery can last up to 43 days in standby mode.

The company has not revealed exactly when the Nokia 800 Tough hits the market, but the handset is expected to have a sale price of $ 119.

Nokia 110



The latest model announced by HMD at IFA was the Nokia 110, a very basic cell phone from the basics. It's a cell phone like the ones that existed in the 1990s and early 2000s. Besides making calls and sending SMS messages, the only thing you can do with the device is enjoy some games like the classic Snake and Doodle Jump. and use it as an MP3 player and can put up to 32 GB of music in it.

The Nokia 110 arrives in stores in September in blue, pink and black and is expected to cost about $ 20.
