The Nokia X71 arrives with a hole-punch display and three rear cameras

At a launch event held in Taiwan on April 2, HMD Global announced a new mid-range Android handset in the form of the Nokia X71. It's getting pretty tricky to keep track of all the Nokia phones released in a given year, but for customers that'll be able to buy it, the X71 does look like a pretty compelling package.

One thing that makes the Nokia X71 stand out is that it's the first Nokia phone to feature a hole-punch display. The front-facing camera cutout is in the upper-left corner of the 6.39-inch screen and doesn't look like it'll be too annoying in day-to-day use. Speaking of the screen, it's an LCD one with a resolution of Full HD+ and a 19.3:9 aspect ratio.

Around back you'll find three rear cameras, including a 48MP primary sensor, 5MP depth sensor, and 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 3,500 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.

To sweeten the deal even more, the Nokia X71 ships with Android 9 Pie and is part of Google's Android One program — ensuring that it receives major software updates and monthly security patches in a timely manner for years to come.

HMD Global is selling the Nokia X71 exclusively in Taiwan and China with a price that equates to around $385 USD.

  • What an awesome looking Mid-Range phone. It's phone like these that prove you don't need a crazy priced flagship to have a lot of excellent features
  • There should be a global variant launched in the near future
  • Very well priced but I'm not a fan of the design, a bit industrial. HMD's Nokias are lacking a bit of the flair that old Nokias had.
  • Yawn, another me too midranger that will be staying away from. Sorry Nokia but you just don't have the sparkle of the Nokia of old and Android One isn't enough to sway me.
  • Shame only the bottom barrel 2 V is cleared for Verizon.
