The Nokia X20, HMD Global’s latest 5G device is now available in the Kenyan market. The company says this device pushes the boundaries of what mid-range smartphones can do.
The phone is available at Safaricom Shops, Mobile Hub, Anisuma and Jumia Online shopping. Pricing starts at KES 40,000 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. There’s also a variant with 8GB RAM.
The new X20 joins the G-series and X-series already introduced. HMD says these devices push the boundaries of what the industry can offer by coupling premium features with unrivalled reliability and durability.
There’s a 64MP quad camera setup at the back, using ZEISS optics. At the front there’s a 32MP selfie camera.
The phone runs Android 11 and the company promises up to 3 years of updates. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G chipset which is the same you’ll find on the Nokia X10 launched recently for KES 35,000.
Like the Nokia X10, HMD Global is not including a charger in the box. The company explains on their website that this is part of their effort to reduce e-waste.
Design-wise, the Nokia X20 combines what HMD Global calls Nordic quality and timeless style. There’s a 4470mAh battery on the device, and it supports 18W fast charging.
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 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.”
