While we reported first via our sources and then via retailer listings about Nokia 7.2 and 6.2 sharing the same design/dimensions, we also made an educated guess that Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 may be Nokia X71 variants with slightly different internals. But now a render of a clear case has appeared online and the source of rumor has claimed it to be Nokia 7.2 render.
The clear case render reveals the same design as of Nokia Daredevil aka TA-1198. It has the same camera module and it seems that design is also the same as the Nokia Daredevil prototype.
We would, however, suggest you take this rumor with a pinch of salt. First of all the renders look like fan-made and not from a genuine retailer listing.
Update: It can be a real deal as we just came to understand that Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 are indeed codenamed Daredevil and Star-Lord. Read more here.
The Nokia 7.2 should come with the highest possible configuration out of Nokia 5.2, 6.2 and 7.2. So, Snapdragon 660 doesn’t really fit the bill. Nokia X71 comes with Snapdragon 660 and we can expect Nokia 7.2 to run Snapdragon 710 or a newer processor.
Also, while Nokia X71 has a punch-hole display, we can expect Nokia 6.2/7.2 to come with a similar design. We have seen many cases/cover listings in the past that claim that Nokia X71 and Nokia 6.2 have the same design. So, Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 should have a design like the Nokia X71.
The Nokia Daredevil prototype has a tear-drop notch and looks like a fit candidate for Nokia 5.2, sharing design elements with Nokia 2.2, 3.2 and 4.2. It won’t make sense for HMD to go for a design downgrade in case of Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 as compared to Nokia X71.
Thanks Reni & Sahil for the tip. Cheers!!
