Nokia Introduces the X71 with Punch Hole

Nokia recently introduced the Nokia X71, as well as the Nokia 9 PureView, as the flagship model. It’s the first Nokia device that has a punch-hole display. The X71 is a mid-range model with 6.39-inch display and Full HD+ screen resolution. With a quoted 93 percent screen-to-body ratio, the design of the X71 is quite impressive to look at. Due to the near all-screen design, the punch hole is needed for the front-facing 16Mp selfie camera. Under the hood, there are Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The microSD slot could accommodate up to 256GB of card.

Another meaningful feature is the triple cameras on the back. Based on the Zeiss technology, the main camera has 48Mp resolution, with 5Mp for depth and 8Mp for wide angle. There’s a flash next to these cameras and below, you can find a standard fingerprint sensor. Just like any Android device, you also get the 3.5mm headphone jack. The Nokia X71 is one of the Android One devices with stock Android 9.0 Pie. The 18W charger that comes with the box should be able to top up the 3,500mAh battery reasonably fast. The phone is available for TWD11,900/$385/€345 and sales should start on April 30.

We heard that the X71 will be exclusive to Taiwan and China. However, the same device should arrive in other markets soon as Nokia 8.1 Plus. However, pricing for the Nokia 8.1 Plus is not yet known. One slightly odd thing about the X71 is that it has the 19.3:9 aspect ratio, instead of the common 19.5:9. The primary 48Mp camera uses f/1.8 aperture and it includes the AI scene recognition feature.  The 8Mp wide-angle camera could cover 120-degree field of view. The 16Mp selfie camera has f/2.0 aperture. At the moment, the X71 is only available in black color option.
