The Nokia brand has never had an Android phone with a punch-hole front-facing camera before. This is no longer the case, with the launch of the Nokia X71 in Taiwan.
The camera itself is a 16MP shooter that sits in a 6.39-inch Full HD+ display. On the inside, you’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6GB RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 3500mAh battery. It will also be running Android 9 Pie, albeit the Android One version of the OS.
At the back of the phone is the 48MP + 8MP+ 5MP triple camera setup with the second and third cameras being the wide-angle camera and the depth sensor, respectively. There’s also a fingerprint scanner at the back, sitting right below the cameras. It’s also nice to see a 3.5mm audio jack on the phone as well.
As mentioned earlier, HMD Global launched the Nokia X71 in Taiwan. GSMArena reports that it is priced at TWD11900 (~RM1574), making it a phone catered to the mid-range market segment. The site also claims that it will launch globally as the Nokia 8.1 Plus, but we’ll have to wait for HMD Global’s announcement to be sure.
