HMD Global has announced the availability of the Nokia X20 in Kenya. This is one of the latest from the company and is available in stores locally for Ksh 40,000.
The Nokia X20 comes with a 6.67-inch display with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels. Under the hood, the phone is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor that has been paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. Powering this phone is Android 11 out of the box.
Gopher Ogembo, Senior Business Manager Kenya & East Africa HMD Global said: “Quality and refinement are hallmarks of the new X-series. With three years of Android TM upgrades, and three years of monthly security updates you can now keep your phone for even longer. With our most accessible 5G phone to date and aspirational and purposeful features, from the new Dual Sight multi-camera mode to watermarking and colour grading tools, you can enjoy capturing and sharing life’s precious moments using lightning fast 5G.”
For the cameras, the Nokia X20 has a 64MP quad rear camera setup held in a circular module. Besides the 64MP sensor, the camera module also has a 5MP ultra-wide angle lens, 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro lens. The Nokia X20 has a 32MP front facing camera for all your selfies and video calls.
Providing all the power to the Nokia X20 is a 4,470 mAh battery with 18W fast charging. For this price, I was expecting at least 33W fast charging as there are cheaper phones that support such speeds. HMD could have a better job here to be honest.
