Nokia Mobile, or better HMD Global, went crazy yesterday. It launched not one or two but six smartphones at Thursday’s big event. The phone in the spotlight, however, is the Nokia X20. The Nokia X20 is the company’s first affordable 5G phone and while this isn’t big news for you, it is for Nokia loyalists. HMD has so far bypassed discussions about specs and the Android experience should weigh much more than that. But this time, things seem to be changing. HMD realizes the needs of the market and 5G is what will move it forward in the race.
The Nokia X20 is the high-end phone in the lot. HMD calls it a premium phone, but its specs aren’t that premium. However, we still cannot rule out a few positives from the Nokia X20. Outside of 5G, you have three years of promised Android upgrades and that’s something customers should be happy with. There are a few smartphone manufacturers that promise timely updates and Nokia is one of them.
