HMD Global, the powerhouse manufacturer of Nokia branded devices, has announced the launch of the latest and newest line of smartphones, the Nokia X20 which comes with 5G connectivity for a sub $600 price. The device has been designed to withstand the hustle and bustle of everyday life, backed by Nokia mobile’s industry-leading three-year warranty.
The Nokia X20 comes with a 6.67-inch punched hole IPS LCD display (1080 x 2400), that is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G processor with an Andreno 619 GPU. To further back the performance, there is 6GB of RAM, along with 128GB of onboard storage which can be expanded to 512GB via MicroSD.
In terms of the rear camera setup, the Nokia X20 comes with a quad ZEISS Optics based camera set up with a 64MP wide main camera, 5MP Ultrawide, 2MP Depth Sensor and 2MP Macro lens. The front-facing camera is located in a punch hole in the middle of the front display which houses a 32MP camera which should be amazing for those insta, TikTok photos and videos.
The Nokia X20 comes with Android 11 right out of the box and Nokia has stated three years of security and Android firmware and security updates, alongside 1 free screen replacement within 3 months of purchase.
There are also NFC capabilities alongside Bluetooth version 5.0. Though, it’s unsure if the device comes with a 3.5 audio jack. It also comes with Nokia’s signature 2 day battery thanks to the included non-removable 4470 mAh battery and associated software to keep your Nokia x20 going and going.
Speaking on the launch of the Nokia X20, James Robinson, ANZ Country Manager, HMD Global has stated that:
“In Australia, we spend more than $155 million3 each year to replace broken and lost mobile handsets – a significant amount. That’s why Nokia phones go the extra mile when it comes to build quality and durability – undergoing tougher tests than the industry average5. And now, we’ve even introduced an industry-leading three-year warranty, making it easier for Australians to hold onto their phones for longer. No matter the price point, we want Australians to love, trust and keep their phone. The new X-series is an example of what a mid-range smartphone can offer, combining more premium features such as cameras with ZEISS Optics with unrivalled reliability, security and durability.”
The Nokia X20 can be pre-ordered from JB Hi-Fi online or your local JB Hi-Fi store for $599 and as part of the deal, those who pre-order the Nokia X20 will also receive a bonus Nokia Lite Earbuds via redemption. Other retailers such as JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks and the Nokia website will come online from June 3rd.
