    How much difference between construction of Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 Back Design Mat Finish Glass compared to Nokia 8.1?

    No any.

    What factored in the decision in making the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 extremely similar in design? The only way to tell the difference between the two phones are the color options, and the presence of frosted glass back and ZEISS logo on the camera module for 7.2.

    Why not recycle the Nokia X71 that was released exclusively in China and Taiwan for the new generation 7 line?

    Why did you use glass as the material of the back cover? As the crash tests of a smartphone on Youtube showed, one not-so-high drop is enough that it crashed to smithereens.

    Why the removal of fast charging? Battery issues? Seems like a strange update to the 7.1

    Why not include NFC in India? Is this to reduce cost or are there regulatory reasons?
    Cheers :)

    I don't understand the reluctance of HMD to provide mid and high-range phones with removable batteries, and the 6.2 and 7.2 continue this trend. If the battery was user-replaceable we'd be able to buy two batteries and be able to use our phones to the full, not try and run them economically in case we forget to charge them overnight. Please can you explain this strange design decision?
    Cheers :)

    Do the 6.2 and 7.2 support exFAT on microSD cards greater than 32GB in capacity, as required by the SD association? https://www.sdcard.org/developers/overview/capacity/

    The Nokia Lumias pioneered great display technology with the ClearBlack and PureMotionHD+ screens. How does PureDisplay compare to those?
    Cheers :)

    Please can you say which of the "RECOMMEND", "SHOULD" and "OPTIONAL" requirements in the Android 9 compatibility definition document the 6.2 and 7.2 support? https://source.android.com/compatibility/9/android-9-cdd.html
    For example, OMTP headsets? My Nokia N8 headset is still the best smartphone bundled headset I've had, and I've had a Lumia 925 and Nokia 8 as well.
    Cheers :)

    Do the 6.2 and 7.2 support Super Sensitive Touch, otherwise known as Glove Mode, like the Lumias used to? If not please can you explain this backward step, which seems very strange for a phone which has Nordic design roots where the weather is generally colder than other places and therefore people tend to wear gloves more often?
    Cheers :)

    How did the green cyan color come about? A bit unusual color for a phone, but really beautiful to look at.

    Sir, why have you fixed the battery size at 3500 mah. I was really hoping 7.2 to have 4000 mah or more, but was disappointed. Many new phone buyers among my friends are not buying Nokia phones for this reason while we all are huge Nokia fans.

    On Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H the Nokia 7.2 is sold with 128gb of storage, but is listed as only having 4gb RAM. However, the Nokia website it states the phone comes in 64gb/4gb and a 128gb/6gb variants. Which is correct? I am purchasing the device in America, and is the 6gb ram not available? Also, is the Ice color coming to North America?

    Hi Miika,
    Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to answer our questions.
    The camera bump design is a change from all previous HMD phones, because it is round and not linear down the central back line of the phone. What is the reason for this change? Will we see this new design continued in future HMD phones?
    Cheers :)
