Additionally, all three have been updated to work on modern 4G cell networks, so you won't have to worry about not being able to get a signal like you would if you dug out an old feature phone from your closet. We're pleased to see that the Nokia 7.2 is also an Android One phone.

The Nokia 7.2 (image above) brings a powerful 48MP main, quad-pixel camera with ZEISS optics, working in tandem with an 8MP wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. These phones will also receive guaranteed security updates for three years and OS upgrades for two years.

The Nokia 6.2 release date is set for October, when we expect it to be relatively widely available around the world.

Flip to the front and there's a 6.3-inch Full HD+ PureDisplay on both phones with a waterdrop notch at the top for the front camera (20MP on the 7.2; 8MP on the 6.2). Nokia 7.2 will be available in two variants of 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. Past year we saw the come back of iconic Nokia 3310 and then the Nokia 8110 (the "banana phone" from The Matrix). For the front, it is loaded with a 20-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. Additionally, the feature allows you to use the 7.2 as a digital photo frame while it's on the charger. It will run on Android 9.0 Pie. It comes pre-installed with WhatsApp and Facebook for being connected, and the Google Assistant can help you accomplish everyday tasks.

Nokia 7.2 features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch that houses the front camera.

It uses a LCD panel, which tends to be less color rich than OLED panels, but the Nokia 6.2 comes with the firm's PureDisplay technology which enhances the color and vibrancy of the screen.

Both phones exhibit similar design and build, with a central aluminium core and Gorilla Glass front and back, with a large, round, camera array on the rear.

Nokia 6.2 is powered by Snapdragon 636 processor and has a 3,500 mAh battery. It also supports Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1. Running Android 9 Pie, the handset is confirmed to get Android 10 in future. Both devices should be announced in the Indian markets by 11 September.

The Nokia 800 Tough is a rugged 4G phone that is water and dust proof. The phone is also MIL-STD-810G compliant and will survive at temperatures between -20°C and 55°C. The phone is pretty bulky with big buttons and anti-slip grip.

Nokia Power Earbuds come in Charcoal Black and Light Grey colors.

It means the Nokia 6.2 is nicely future proofed for the coming years, and HMD Global is now the fastest manufacturer when it comes to rolling out new Android software to its entire fleet. On the left you get another key, which is programmed to launch Google Assistant, but you can change this in the settings to launch an app of your choosing. With a 1.3-inch display outside to display notifications, caller ID etc, you can answer calls just by flipping it open.

The device runs on a Qualcomm 205 Mobile platform with 512GB and it has KaiOS as its operating system. It also has a 2-megapixel camera with flash. The Nokia 2720 Flip will be available in Ocean Blue, Black and Pink, and will be available in September. It also comes with legendary snake games along with four try-and-buy games. It packs 4MB of ROM and RAM. Other similarities include the 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage, expandable by up to 32GB via microSD. While owning a smartphone often feels like a requirement, feature phones (or dumbphones if we're being crude) still serve an important role as alternatives to the pricey mini-computers in our pockets.
