After all, Nokia isn’t lagging behind in the ongoing pixel war. It does something like others to stand in the market. Making its way into the 48MP club, the HMD Global’s subsidiary has launched its new model – X71 in Taiwan today.
Nokia’s New Phone: X71 Comes with Punch-hole Display and a 48MP Camera
This handset is an addition to its existing X-series and the first one from the company to sport a punch-hole display. Being a mid-ranger, X71 is equipped with decent specs and is expected to perform well in its segment.
A 6.39″ (1080×2316) FHD+ display with about 93% screen-to-body ratio. It has 2.5D curved glass front and back protecting it the punch-hole screen.
Processed by Snapdragon’s 660 SoC (14nm) and Adreno’s 512 GPU, X71 currently comes in only one storage variant of 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM (with expandable options up to 256GB via MicroSD.
Imaging is peculiar in this handset. Sporting a 48MP (f/1.8) primary sensor, it has Zeiss optics lens of 8MP and 5MP (f/2.4) in the rear along with fingerprint sensor. It’ll be the first 48MP lens phone from the company.
And in the front, there’s a 16MP (f/2.0) lens stuffed in the punch-hole of the display.
Running on Android 9, this doesn’t bear the tag of Android One in Taiwan but may have in other markets if launched.
Under the hood, there’s a 3500mAh battery with 18W support for fast charging.
Other regular connectivities include the WiFi, Bluetooth 5, USB 2.0 Type-C etc.
Launching only in Taiwan, X71 is expected to reach the other markets too, but with a different name (probably as 6.1 or 8.1).
Price and Availability:
With only one color variant in Black, X71 is priced at 11,900 Taiwan Dollars (Rs.26,600) and will go on sale from April 30.
