HMD has not only plonked a relatively large sensor of 1/2” on Nokia 7.2 but has also used pixel-binning to deliver smaller final images condensed from the 48MP sensor.

This takes forward the strong Nokia PureView imaging heritage that used big sensor size and pixel-binning to deliver great imaging quality on Nokia 808 and later on Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520 and Lumia 930.

While we have not seen enough imaging samples captured with Nokia 7.2 so far, it seems that the triple camera can really live up to expectations as is evident from the only sample posted by HMD on Twitter.

There is also a dedicated Night Mode that can go up to 10 secs when handheld and up to 20 sec on the tripod. It will be interesting to see the results here again.
