Smartphones these days are slim with a fancy, sharp display and shiny materials. The only problem is that everything feels fragile. As good as they look, most people would have covered the beauty with a case and also a screen protector. Some even go harder by covering the phone with a thick, rugged case that protects the phone from a fall or worse accidents.
Back then, the Nokia 3210 didn’t seem to have this problem as its build for ruggedness and being known as a “brick phone” (in a good way) and we sometimes long for a new phone that can withstand anything.
And the new Nokia XR20 is that new phone many would be longing for. It’s literally built to be able to withstand any mishaps and accidents – more than simple scratches and bumps.
Nokia XR20 is scratch-resistant, drop-resistant, temperature-resistant, water-resistant, and to add on top, kid-and-pet-resistant. Its house casing is made to the MIL-STD-810H military standard, and even has a special Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for the screen.
Heck, it can even survive a full-powered kick from Roberto Carlos!
For the camera, the Nokia XR20 has a dual rear camera setup featuring a 48 MP sensor and a 13 MP ultra-wide sensor.
5G is supported, including wireless charging and 18W fast charging. Built for durability, I didn’t think the phone supports wireless charging, but there you go.
