The phone adopts the rounded design we saw on earlier announced Nokia phones, with a screen with teardrop notch and a shiny backside covered in Gorilla Glass 3. The phone has a dedicated Google Assistant button and LED notification light inside the power button.
The back of the 6.2 features a camera ring that holds the triple camera configuration. The backside looks really well made in Ceramic Black and Ice color. The camera configuration comes with a 16MP f/1.8 main camera, 8MP f/2.2 118 degree wide angle camera and a 5MP depth sensor. The primary camera has an 8MP f/2 sensor. The camera comes with AI features for adjustable bokeh styles and night mode with image fusion and exposure stacking.

The SoC of choice is Snapdragon 636 in combination with 3GB or 4GB LPPDDR4x RAM and 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of e-MMC5.1 internal storage. It supports Dual nano-SIM and has a dedicated SD card slot. The battery capacity is 3500mAh, charged via the Type C port on the bottom with a charger output of 10W.
You can connect your wireless gadgets via Bluetooth 5.0 and your wired headphones via the 3.5mm headphone jack. The device comes with NFC, but not in all regions so be sure to check the local Nokia pages before buying.
