Nokia Mobile is about to launch their latest devices today at IFA but thanks to an early post by TechRadar we now know what's coming in good detail. Nokia Mobile is bringing three new smartphones, a tablet and a subscription service.
The smartphones coming are the entry-level Nokia C31 and mid-rangers Nokia G60 and Nokia X30. The fourth device is the Nokia T21 tablet. Images of the Nokia C31, Nokia G60 and Nokia T21 reveal new colors which look very nice and fresh. Nokia X30 is only revealed from the front and I am sure many will like it. The bezels are now reduced and it also seems to be having an in-display fingerprint scanner if we go by the image. The Nokia X30 also comes with an IP67 certification.
Nokia T21 is the latest tablet powered by a Unisoc T61 processor and runs on Android 12. Comes with a 10.4" 2K display and an 8200mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. There's 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which can be expanded using a micro sd card slot. The WiFi-only model is priced at €220 while the 4G version costs €250 and will go on sale in October.
The article also reveals the environmentally friendly approach taken by HMD Global in making some of the devices. Nokia X30 uses recycled aluminum for the frame along with 65% recycled plastic back. The Nokia T21 also uses 60% recycled plastic for the antenna cover and sim tray.
HMD Global has also announced a subscription service called "Circular" which will be first rolled out in the UK and Germany and later in other markets. With Circular, you can buy Nokia devices at a monthly subscription plan such as Nokia X30 5G for €30 per month and Nokia G60 for approximately €20 per month. They also charge a €35 installation fee and the subscription also covers losses against theft and damage. They also give you "seeds" as reward points which you can redeem to plant trees, clean rivers and provide connectivity to those who are in need. This will be your contribution in helping to save the environment. If you happen to replace your device under this program, HMD Global ensures to reuse the old device if possible and recycle the other to the maximum.
