The Nokia X100 is a phone with quad rear shooters enhanced with Zeiss lenses, NFC and a headphone jack. It is powered by the Snapdragon 480 SoC and, thus, will support the 5G bands of its new exclusive carrier, T-Mobile. It will also be available through its Metro pay-as-you-go arm from November 19, 2021.

Nokia has announced the X100 as a T-Mobile/Metro exclusive in the United States. Its specs and ability to use up-to-date connectivity on its new networks might make it welcome among its users, even though it is not technically a brand new phone.

In fact, it is a rebrand of the X10 through its new channels, which means it retains the same 6.67-inch FHD+ display with a 16MP selfie camera, powered by a 4,470mAh battery. However, this version has just 1 configuration with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, in just 1 Midnight Blue colorway.

The X100 will run an Android 11-based OS out of the box, although there is no mention of the OEM's habitual 3 years' worth of software and security patch updates now it comes in a different, carrier-specific form. However, its pricing is more of a definitive potential advantage: it will go for just US$252 on its late November 2021 release, as opposed to $318 on Amazon right now.
