Short description Nokia XR20

This is a smartphone on Android 11 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 2 modules (48 MP Wide, 13 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Nokia XR20 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there), dust and water protection.

Important update: this model is updated to Android version 12.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Nokia XR20 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Nokia in July 2021. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Nokia XR20 works on Android 11 and updated to Android 12. And this is very good, we advise you to pay attention to this smartphone and to study its characteristics in more detail.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Nokia XR20 is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. In addition, this model works in the fifth generation networks (5G), and this means that the speed of mobile Internet will be as high as home Wi-Fi (maximum 100 Mb/s). And there is another plus — the smartphone’s battery will be slower to use up the charge and your phone will work longer until the next charge. We have collected all smartphones with support for 5G networks on a specific page in the catalog, so that it is more convenient for you to choose and search for a new smartphone.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Nokia XR20. There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a cutout in the form of a small hole for a selfie camera. The case is protected from water and dust, you can safely use your smartphone in a few extreme situations (for example, during rain or in the bathroom, taking a shower). On the front side of the case is located huge IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.67″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 4 630 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (48 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide) was received by Nokia XR20. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 8 MP Wide. Today this is a weak camera. If you are looking for a good camera phone to take pictures of yourself, then be sure to look selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Nokia XR20 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 480 5G (8 nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. You are only available 128 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Nokia XR20: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Nokia XR20 is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Nokia XR20 will begin in August 2021 at a price of $555. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
