HMD Global, Nokia’s brand licensee, launched the Nokia X71 in Taiwan on Wednesday. The smartphone sports a nearly bezel-less display with a circular cutout for the front facing camera, much like Samsung’s Galaxy S10.
The smartphone is priced at NT$11,900 or around ₹26,394 and goes on sale next week. The smartphone, for now, is exclusive only to the Taiwanese markets. It’s India availability hasn’t been revealed yet.
Although from the front the Nokia X71 is reminiscent of the Galaxy S10, it has an unmistakable Nokia design otherwise—with an understated glass-back with gold accents and an Android One interface. A thicker bottom bezel of the display and a fingerprint sensor at the back also distinguish the smartphone from the S10.
The Nokia X71 sports a 6.39-inch Full HD LCD screen with an aspect ratio of 19.3:9. The punch-hole camera sits on the top-left corner.
It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 processor paired with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage.
The back of the smartphone houses a triple camera setup comprising a 48MP+8MP+5MP configuration. The 8MP camera serves as an ultra-wide angle clicker while the 5MP camera is used for depth sensing. At the front, a 16MP camera sits inside the circular cutout.
The smartphone is backed by a 3,500 mAh battery with support for 18W fast-charging. It runs the Android One platform based on Android 9.0 Pie and comes with USB-C connectivity and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Finnish smartphone maker launched the Nokia 9 PureView at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 at Barcelona in February this year. The flagship smartphone’s key highlight is a Penta-lens setup at the back that is capable of capturing high-fidelity, high-quality photographs.
