OS: Android 9 Pie
Price: Taiwan – 345 euros
The X71 comes in a glass-sandwich design, something we saw evolved from Nokia 8 Sirocco in Nokia Mobile’s lineup. The frame is aluminum, while the body also features copper accent colors, reminding me of my Nokia 6.1 and 7 plus. The front panel is 93% screen (screen effective area / front panel area), and features a punch-hole where the front 16MP camera sits. The screen is 6.39-inch in diagonal with FullHD+ resolution, and is branded as PureDisplay.
On the back we have a triple camera setup that includes the 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture. The 48MP sensor produces 12MP images equivalent to using a 12MP sensor with 1.6um. This sensor might be Samsung GM1 or Sony’s IMX586. The second one is an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera (120 degrees) and we also have a 5MP depth sensing camera. Dual Hi-cri flash is also there, as well as ZEISS optics and support for OZO Audio.
Under the hood we have the Snapdrgon 660, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and 3500mAh battery. The device uses USB Type-C for charging, and supports 18W fast charging. On the back we also have a fingerprint sensor, and the X71 also features the LED notification light in the power button, just as we saw with the 3.2 and 4.2 at MWC2019. The phone also has a MicroSD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack.
The sales of Nokia X71 start in Taiwan next week for 344 euros (or 11,900TND). The device will be available in just one color option, and interestingly enough, it runs regular Android 9 Pie, not Android One. The availability for other markets in unknown.
