Nokia has announced the third smartphone in the revamped X-series of smartphones. The new XR20 is based largely on the X20 that was launched back in April. Nokia has mostly worked on X20’s design and made it more durable. Here, we will be taking a detailed look at the new Nokia XR20, its specs, features, and expected price in Nepal.

Nokia XR20 Overview:

Design and Display

The ‘R’ in the Nokia XR20, we believe, indicates the phone’s rugged design. Though it features the same 6.67-inch FHD+ panel as the X20, XR20’s display is more durable, thanks to Gorilla Glass Victus protection. This screen boasts a brightness of up to 550 nits and can be used with wet hands and gloves.

Nokia XR20 has a ruggedized body with the MIL-STD-810H certification. It weighs around 248 grams and is 10.64mm thick. XR20 is IP68 rated against dust and water damage, while the Gorilla Glass Victus protection carries on to the back of the phone as well.

Performance and Software

Under the hood, Nokia XR20 packs Snapdragon 480, which is Qualcomm’s cheapest 5G-ready chipset yet. It is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

On the software front, the phone runs on Android 11. Nokia has committed to providing three years of OS upgrade and an additional year of security updates, just like Samsung.

Camera

At the back, Nokia has reduced the camera count from four to two. Fortunately, it’s the 2MP sensors that it has gotten rid of. You 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 resembling an “X” shape inside the squarish camera bump. To note, this is a deviance from the circular bump on other Nokia phones we’ve seen lately. Upfront, there is an 8MP selfie shooter inside the punch-hole cutout.

Rest of the specs

Fueling the phone is a 4,630mAh battery, which supports 18W fast charging. It even supports 15W wireless charging. Nokia is including a wired charger in the box as well, which is absent on the X20.

There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics. Also, Nokia has included a user-programmable button on the top. Apart from all this, Nokia is promising 3 years of warranty on XR20.
