Nokia has announced the third smartphone in the renovated X-series of smartphones. The new XR20 is based mainly on the X20 that was released back in April. Nokia has mostly worked on X20’s design and durability. Here, Let’s have a detailed look at the specs, features, and expected price of the new Nokia XR20 in Nepal.
Nokia XR20 Overview:
Design and Display
Talking about the design, We believe that the ‘R’ in the Nokia XR20, indicates the phone’s rugged design. Though it flaunts the same 6.67-inch FHD+ panel as the X20, XR20’s display is more durable, thanks to its Gorilla Glass Victus protection. This screen boasts a brightness of up to 550 nits and the smartphone can be used with gloves and wet hands.
Nokia XR20 has a ruggedized body along with the MIL-STD-810H certification. Nokia XR20 weighs around 248 g and is 10.64mm thick. Nokia XR20 is IP68 rated against dust and water damage, whereas the Gorilla Glass Victus protection carries on to the backside of the device as well.
Performance and Software
Under the hood, Nokia XR20 comes with Snapdragon 480, which is Qualcomm’s cheapest 5G-ready chipset till now. On the software, the phone boots on Android 11. Just like Samsung, Nokia has committed three years of OS upgrade and an additional year of security updates.
In terms of memory, It is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and internal storage of 128GB.
At the rear, Nokia has decreased the camera count from four to two. Fortunately, it’s the 2MP sensor that it has gotten rid of. However, smartphones still get the Zeiss-branded dual-camera setup consisting of a 48MP primary and a 13MP ultrawide sensor.
The two sensors, along with the LED flash are diagonally arranged inside the squarish camera bump resembling an “X” shape. Notably, this is an abnormality from the circular bump on other Nokia smartphones we’ve seen lately. On the front for selfies and video calls, the device comes an 8MP selfie shooter inside the punch-hole cutout.
