Creativity is key with ZEISS Optics and powerful AI

Nokia 7.2 combines a highly sensitive 48MP sensor with Quad Pixel technology to create beautiful images in all conditions. Three new and exclusive ZEISS bokeh styles are featured, including portrait mode that recreates how ZEISS lenses produce high visual impact and signature blur with the ZEISS Modern, ZEISS Swirl and ZEISS Smooth modes. AI-powered night mode allows for photography in low light, combining image fusion and explosion stacking to deliver excellent low light performance.

Breath-taking PureDisplay and HDR upscaling

Featuring PureDisplay technology with a dedicated Pixelworks visual processor, Nokia 7.2 upscales video content to HDR quality in real time with up to a billion shades of colour, higher contrast and expanded dynamic range for video and high brightness at 500 nits. Combined with local contrast enhancement, the screen is easy to view even in brighter conditions.

Timeless Nordic design heritage meets engineering excellence

True to its Nordic roots, Nokia 7.2 features a seamless finish from polymer composite twice as strong as polycarbonate and half the weight of aluminium. The phone features a gently curved design, with Corning® Gorilla® Glass protecting both the front and the back. A multilayer coating system with vacuum metallisation and a light diffusing satin glass provides bright aesthetics, a smooth finish and durability.
