In India, HMD Global unveiled the Nokia T20, the company’s first Android-powered tablet. HMD Global said in a statement that the tablet “combines the trademark features of Nokia phones in terms of design, build quality, unrivalled battery life, and security updates and improvements.”
The tablet has a 2K display and is powered by an 8,200mAh battery that can last up to 15 hours on a single charge.
“We have seen that tablet usage has expanded substantially in the last year,” HMD Global Vice-President Sanmeet Singh Kochhar remarked. The expanding use cases of remote working, online learning, video calls, content consumption on OTT platforms, and social media usage are obviously driving this trend.”
“We are thrilled to release our first Tablet, the Nokia T20, in India before the approaching Diwali celebration to address these new consumer expectations.”
The Nokia T20 has a 10.4-inch display and runs Android 11. An octa-core Unisoc T610 SoC CPU and up to 4GB RAM power the tablet. There will be two storage options for the table: 32GB and 64GB. The dedicated microSD card slot can also be used to expand storage up to 512GB.
HMD Global will provide security updates for up to three years and operating system upgrades for up to two years.
The tablet’s LED flash, which works in tandem with an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the back, offers better low-light shooting. It sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera sensor for selfies. The tablet includes OZO Playback and stereo speakers, as well as dual microphones for noise cancellation.
Today, the Nokia T20 will be available for purchase on Nokia.com and in select offline retailers, as well as on Flipkart beginning Tuesday. The tablet costs Rs 15,499 for the WiFi-only edition with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The Nokia T20 WiFi-only 4GB + 32GB model costs Rs 16,499, while the Nokia T20 4G model costs Rs 18,499.
With the tablet, HMD Global will also include preinstalled Spotify access.
