HMD Global today unveiled two new smartphones to complement the X series – Nokia X10 and Nokia X20. Outwardly, and in terms of characteristics, they are very similar, but the main difference lies in the cameras.
So, both models received a Snapdragon 480 processor with 5G support. The manufacturer promises full support for 3 years, which means OS updates and security patches. Nokia X10 offers versions with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of ROM but in the arsenal of Nokia X20 only versions with 6/128 GB and 8/128 GB. You can expand the storage capacity using a microSD memory card, but the slot here is hybrid.
Both smartphones feature a 6.67-inch FHD + (1080 × 2400 pixels) display with 450 cd/m2 brightness and 82 percent NTSC color space coverage. Responsible for autonomy is a 4470 mAh battery with support for 18 W charging. The package comes with a 100% biodegradable protective case that will not harm the environment, but you will not find either headphones or a charger in the box.
Now let’s talk about cameras. Both look the same: round blocks with four modules and the ZEISS logo, which indicates the use of this company’s optics. The Nokia X20 has a 64MP sensor, an ultra-wide-angle 5MP camera, and two 2MP sensors for macro and depth estimation. In turn, the Nokia X10 has a 48 MP sensor in the company of the same lenses. In addition, the older model got a 32-megapixel front camera, the younger one – 8-megapixel.
The set of both smartphones also includes Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a fingerprint scanner on the side.
The Nokia X20 will be available in May for €350, while the Nokia X10 will delay until June and go on sale with a price tag of €310. Of course, it is expensive for such modest characteristics – for this money you can buy a more advanced Chinese smartphone.
