Nokia, banking its hard-earned customer feedback, is gradually increasing its smartphone fan base. The company launched its new X series with the inclusion of X71 in its premium smartphone list. The company launched the newest arrival in Taiwan as its first phone with a punch hole display. HMD Global Oy launched the phone in Mainland China yesterday.


The official Nokia Mobile China account has been dropping teasers of the phone in the past couple of days before the initial launch yesterday. Nokia X71 has striking similarities with Nokia’s 7 Plus. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor with Nokia’s first-ever triple rear camera setup. Nokia X71 has a 6.39-inch PureView display with an FHD+ resolution and a 19.3:9 aspect ratio. HMD Global says it has a screen-to-body ratio of 93% but didn’t state the diameter of the punch hole. The hole in the display is on the left just like that of the Honor View 20. The newest Nokia contains 6GB of RAM and 128GB Storage with support for external storage. The triple rear camera setup contains:

  • 48MP primary camera,
  • 8MP wide-angle camera,
  • 5MP camera for depth of field.

While the front-facing camera is a 16MP f/2.0 sensor. Furthermore, there is a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone.

The Nokia X71 supports Bluetooth 5.0, Dual SIM Dual Standby, and runs Android 9 Pie. It has a 3500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. It also has a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a notification LED integrated into the power button. The phone comes in a single color variant – Eclipse Black.
