Today, HMD Global has launched its first rugged 5G smartphone the Nokia XR20 in the new XR series, as expected. It is a waterproof smartphone with an IP68 rating and has a sleek casing that is made to the MIL-STD-810H military standard, 1.5m drop protection, and can be submerged to depths of 1.5m for 30 minutes. The company says that this phone was built for conditions far harsher than the rough and tumble of everyday life.
This phone has the same 6.67-inch FHD+ punch-hole displays as the X20 but comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection for better durability. It runs on the Snapdragon 480 5G processor with up to 6GB RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, and works on Android 11 with 3-years of software upgrades as well as security updates.
It has a dual rear camera setup where a 48MP primary camera with ZEISS Optics, along with a 13MP ultra-wide camera, and on the front side has an 8MP punch-hole camera. It features stereo speakers, OZO spatial audio, and all-new SpeedWarp mode with super-stabilization that lets you fast-forward to the key moments. It is powered by a 4630mAh battery that supports 18W fast wired charging and also supports 15W wireless charging.
