Nokia Intros Rugged Phone, Brings it to US
Updated: An earlier version of this article said the phone did not support 5G in band 71, per Nokia's published specs. But a new FCC approval seems to indicate otherwise.
Nokia's new XR20 is a $550 5G phone with a design rugged enough to carry case-free. The "life-proof" body can withstand 6-foot drops, an hour underwater, washing with soap and water, and extreme temperatures. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, Corning's newest and most durable display glass. The phone also offers "two-day" battery life with fast wired (18W) and wireless (15W) charging. It has excellent support for all US frequency bands in 4G and 5G, including the forthcoming C-band. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chip with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage (expandable). The main camera is 48 megapixel with Zeiss optics, accompanied by a 13 megapixel wide-angle camera. Other features include NFC, headset jack, Wi-Fi 6, stereo speakers, and USB 3.0. As an X-series phone, it comes with Nokia's promise of three major OS updates plus four years of security updates. It will be available in blue or grey. It ships in the US on August 24th for $550.
