Nokia X10 and X20 Launched; 5G Snapdragon Chip, Three Years of Android Updates, and Long Battery Life

HMD released six new phones from three lineups at their big launch event yesterday. The Nokia X-series is a mid-range 5G line that features Nokia X20 and Nokia X10. The two phones offer three years of guaranteed stock Android upgrades and security patches.

Nokia X20

The X20 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 at its heart, powered by a 5G modem and a 4470 mAh battery. The phone promises 2-day battery life, and the phone’s 18W support cuts down on charging times. Pure Android11 runs on the X20 straight out of the box.

The shell has a glossy finish that comes in Midnight Sun and Nordic Blue. Its camera array is encased inside a donut-shaped housing, a thumbprint scanner is merged with the power button, and a 3.5mm audio jack is found at the bottom.

HMD partnered with ZEISS Optics for the X20 camera system that features a 64MP camera, a 5MP wide-angle lens, and a pair of 2MP macro and portrait sensors. The front camera is 32MP embedded inside a hole-punch cutout.

Finally, Nokia X20 uses a 6.67” IPS LCD that delivers a full HD resolution and fills a 20:9 aspect ratio. It goes on sale later in May, starting from €350 (~ Rs. 63,000.)

Nokia X10

The X10 shell comes in Forest and Snow colorways. Its display has an O-hole in the center and identical dimensions to the X20. In a similar vein, the 5G processor, battery, and charging features are shared between the two phones.

The quad-camera on the Nokia X10 is led by a 48MP sensor, also co-engineered with ZEISS. A 5MP ultra-wide and two 2MP sensors for macro and portrait photography round off the setup. Its front camera is 8MP.

Nokia X10 offers NFC support, a side-facing fingerprint scanner, a basic IP52 rating, and a dedicated button for summoning the Google Assistant. It hits store shelves in June and will start from €310 (~ Rs. 56,000.)
