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. Nokie 3210 release date was 1999, so it has been a while for sure.
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.
