HMD Global is widely expected to launch the Nokia 6.2 in India on June 6. While it was speculated that the Nokia 6.2 will the global variant of the Nokia X71 that was launched in Taiwan, it seems that might not be the case. A new tip by Twitter user Nokia Anew suggests the Nokia 6.2 will not be a rebranded Nokia X71. The same source also claims to reveal the Russian pricing of the Nokia 6.2.
The Nokia 6.2, based on what we know so far, will come with a punch-hole display and a LED notification light power button, which is why it was expected to be a rebranded Nokia X71. However, it has also been reported that the Nokia 6.2 will come with dual cameras and a Snapdragon 632 chipset rather than triple cameras and Snapdragon 660 SoC as the Nokia X71.
A separate tweet by the Nokia Anew account also mentions that the Nokia 6.2 will cost 18,990 Rubles, which translates to around Rs 20,000 in India. That being said, HMD Global typically prices its device more aggressively in the Indian market so we expect the Nokia 6.2 to fall well under Rs 20,000. To recall, the Nokia 6.1 was launched starting at Rs 16,999, which means the Nokia 6.2 could launch around the same price.
HMD Global has been pretty discreet about its upcoming launch, leading to many speculations and rumours about what the Nokia phone could be. One thing that seems pretty certain, however, is that the next Nokia phone will come with a dedicated Night mode in the camera app to offer brighter and sharper low-light pictures.
HMD Global is holding simultaneous events in India and Italy on June 6. Currently, the Nokia 6.2 is on top of the list of likely launches, but the company may have a few surprises up its sleeves as well. HMD is yet to bring the Nokia 9 PureView and Nokia 1 Plus as well, so we may hear something about these phones on June 6.
