Following the latest trend in the smartphone market aimed at achieving a higher screen-to-body ratio, HMD Global has launched the Nokia X71 with a 48-megapixel primary camera and a punch-hole display in Taiwan. The new Nokia X71 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie and is backed up by a 3,500mAh battery. The device features a triple rear camera module at the back compromising of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 8-megapixel secondary sensor and 5-megapixel tertiary sensor. It features a 6.39-inch Full HD+ display with a 19.3:9 aspect ratio. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack, making the X71 the most perfect phone from Nokia.
According to the specs sheet, Nokia X71 would not be competing with Nokia 9 PureView–which sits at the top of the Nokia smartphones models, but would rather slip into the mid-range smartphones from HMD Global. In terms of its position in the mid-range smartphone segment, Nokia X71 comes with features that could give other devices in the range a run for their money. The device runs on Stock Android 9.0 Pie, confirming the swift security and software updates.
HMD Global has not revealed the pricing of the phone and neither the availability of it outside Taiwan has been confirmed. However, judging by the aggressive pricing of the Xiaomi Note 7 Pro, it is expected to ship with a price tag hovering around that figure. According to a GSMArena report, the price of the Nokia X71 starts at 11,990 TWD, which translates roughly to ₹26,800. The website also notes that Nokia X71 is expected to ship to other markets under the moniker Nokia 8.1 Plus.
