HMD Global, the company behind Nokia-branded phones, announced yesterday that the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 220 4G are headed to Australia later this week.
Both devices will be made available via the usual retail channels here in Australia.
The Nokia 6.2 is the follow-up to the Nokia 6.1, and will be the first 6-series smartphone to premiere a triple camera and PureDisplay technology, bringing HDR entertainment and advanced cameras.
It also brings with it the Google Assistant dedicated button, a convenient way to access Google Assistant any time. This feature has been introduced a lot of the current Nokia devices, and it’s a welcome addition.
The Nokia 6.2 also comes with HMD Global’s guaranteed monthly security updates for three years, and OS upgrades for two years – it’s a notable feature that Nokia users enjoy, and something that has pleased us in the Ausdroid office.
