- HMD has launched its premium smartphone called the Nokia X20.
- The Nokia X20 brings a Snapdragon 480 processor with 5G support.
- The Nokia X20 is likely to be launched in India soon.
Nokia Mobile, or better HMD Global, went bonkers yesterday. It launched not one or two but six smartphones at the grand event on Thursday. The phone in the spotlight, however, is the Nokia X20. The Nokia X20 is the company's first affordable 5G phone and while that may not be important news to you, it is to Nokia loyalists. HMD has so far skirted around the talks on specifications and that the Android experience should weigh much more than that. But this time, things seem to be changing. HMD is realising the market needs and 5G is what will take it forward in the race.
The Nokia X20 is the highest-end phone in the lot. HMD calls it a premium phone, but its specifications are not that premium. However, we still cannot rule out a few things that are good about the Nokia X20. Apart from 5G, you have three years of promised Android upgrades and that is something customers should be happy about. There are a few smartphone companies that promise timely updates and Nokia happens to be one of them. Even though the specifications of the phone cannot be passed off as premium, the phone looks can certainly be. And on top of that, you have several features. Let us talk about them in this rundown of specifications, features, and price of the Nokia X20.
