Nokia has not been at the forefront of the smartphone industry in 2021 and this has become evident from some of the phones they launched. The company’s low budget phones Nokia 3.4 and 5.4 are already present in the market, but even this could not be successful. However, Nokia is likely planning to change things by bringing the X series phones in India. The company’s Indian website has indicated the arrival of the X20 and X10 to India.
Both the X20 and X10 are listed on the Nokia India website under the SAR value section. First spotted by NokiaMob, the entire segment mentions all the phones listed in India and the upcoming phones. Along with the X20 and X10, the listing also mentions C and G series phones for the Indian market.
Nokia preparing to launch X20, X10
It should be noted that all the phones in the X, C and G series are aimed at the affordable segments of the market. The X20 and X10 are 5G compatible phones in the new lineup, with a Snapdragon 480 chip. The displays of both these phones are 6.6-inches and have Full HD + IPS LCD panels. Nokia equips both of these with a 4,450mAh battery with an 18W fast charger in the box.
The X20 packs a 64-megapixel camera with a ZEISS branded lens while the X10 sports a 48-megapixel main camera. The highlight of both these phones is the promise of three years of Android OS updates, which is unheard of in the affordable smartphone space. It remains to be seen whether Nokia stacks up its USP against the batch of highly-equipped Chinese smartphones.
Nokia is yet to comment or confirm about these smartphones. Hence, it may be possible that these ratings may not indicate anything for Indian consumers. Nokia has been left behind with its marketing and planning in India.
It is expected that the X, C and G series phones will replace the old number phones that we have seen so far. Furthermore, HMD Global is yet to announce plans to release a flagship-grade device any time soon. His last outing in the premium smartphone space was the Nokia 9 PureView which introduced a penta camera setup and Snapdragon 845 chip.
