HMD GLOBAL has shown off the Nokia X71, its first phone to sport a Galaxy S10-alike punch-hole display.
Launched in Taiwan, the Nokia X71 sports a 6.39in Full HD+ display with a 93 per cent screen-to-body ratio, thanks to HMD's decision to adopt a punch hole cutout rather than a notch to house the 16MP front-facing snapper.
It's also the first Nokia-branded phone to sport a triple-camera setup on its backside. This Zeiss-certified array comprises a 48MP main sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture an 8MP ultra wide-angle lens with a 120-degree field of view. This is backed up by all of the usual bells and whistles, including AI scene recognition and a night-shooting mode.
A capacitive fingerprint sensor sits underneath the elongated camera array, and under the hood you'll find a 14nm Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, expandable by up to 256GB via microSD.
Elsewhere, the Nokia X71 packs a 3,500mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack and OZO 360-degree surround sound technology. As part of the Android One programme, the handset will also ship with native Android 9 Pie
The Nokia X71 will be available in Taiwan starting 30 April priced at TWD 11,900 (around £295). HMD has yet to confirm whether the device will see a release here in Blighty, but we'll update this article as we hear more. µ
