Nokia XR20, the all-new rugged 5G phone from HMD Global is coming soon to India. An interesting thing to know about the XR20 is that it has a James Bond connection. The XR20 featured in the latest Bond film, aka ‘No Time To Die.’ This would be the really phone you see Lashana Lynch, who plays 00 agent Nomi use—show off—briefly. Product placements are not uncommon in the market and it certainly assists enhance popularity—and hopefully sales—when you associate with a well known and extended-operating franchise like this. Whether—or not—that implies anything to you is entirely subjective.
As for the solution itself, the XR20 was launched in Europe back in July at a beginning cost of 499 euros (roughly Rs 43,500). HMD Global hasn’t revealed the precise India launch date however but has confirmed that pre-bookings will get started from October 20. We can anticipate more information anytime now.
The XR20 has two essential USPs. One is its ‘military-grade’ durability. The phone is each IP68 and MIL-STD810H-certified. On the front, it has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. HMD Global goes so far as to contact it ‘life-proof,’ a phone you can apparently clean with soap and water, if you get it dirty. Needless to say, we can not wait to test that out. The other massive highlight of the phone is that it comes with 3 years of warranty along with assured Android OS updates and 4 years of safety patches.
Rest of the specs are mediocre at greatest although. The XR20 has a 6.67-inch 1080p show with a hole punch reduce-out. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 method-on-chip which is paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage. It has two cameras on the back with a 48MP major and a different 13MP ultra-wide-angle. On the front, it has an 8MP selfie shooter.
Rounding off the package are a 4,630mAh battery with 18W wired and 15W wireless charging, stereo speakers with OZO Audio and Android 11 application.
