The US market is mostly driven by operators, but love the idea of having Nokia phones offered in the biggest tech stores there. Best Buy listed Nokia 7.2 in its offer not long after B&H did. The phone that Best Buy will be selling is the same one we saw at B&H, with 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The model specifically aimed for the US market is TA-1178, or the Single-SIM variant. The price is set at $349.99 which is 99 cents more than what is B&H selling, but somehow I don’t think that will be a trouble for all the US Nokia fans willing to try their revamped 48 MP camera boosted with ZEISS lenses and software.
Best Buy didn’t mention when will the device be available, but just stated it is coming soon.
It is strange to see the 4/128GB configuration offered for the US market, but 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM is more than enough to power this device smoothly. Yes, 6GB of RAM does sound better, but we’ll see what differences will a test of both models show.
