Nokia X71 launched with triple rear cameras and a punch-hole - Will be rebranded as the Nokia 8.1 Plus
At an event a few days ago in Taiwan, HMD Global unveiled its latest device, the Nokia X71. The mid-range phone is the company’s first triple camera device, and also the first to feature a punch-hole display.
The Nokia X71 sports a 6.39-inch FHD+ display. The punch-hole is at the top left of the device—a tad like the Honor View 20’s as opposed to the Samsung Galaxy S10’s—and plays host to a 16 MP selfie shooter. At the back of the device is a triple camera setup that comprises of a 48 MP main camera, 8 MP ultra-wide angle, and 5 MP depth sensor.
The X71 is powered by a Snapdragon 660, which is a tad disappointing. That SoC choice also means that the sensor is likely the Samsung GM1 instead of the more impressive Sony IMX586. Under the hood is 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, expandable to 256 GB by way of a MicroSD.
A 3.5mm headphone jack and a traditional fingerprint reader are present. Supplying the device with power is a 3500 mAh battery, and there’s 18 W fast-charge support. The Nokia X71 will go on sale on April 30 with a price tag that translates into about US$385. It is expected to be rebranded as the Nokia 8.1 Plus in other markets.
