Nokia X30 in for review
We first got our hands on the Nokia X30 at IFA 2022 in Berlin, and now the phone has landed in our office for a full review. We have the Ice White color version, but there is one more option – Cloudy Blue.
The Nokia X30 comes in a recycled box with the usual paperwork, SIM tool and a USB-C to USB-C cable. It doesn’t come with the power adapter though, so you’ll need to buy one separately if you don’t already own a compatible charger.
The Nokia X30 is built around a 6.43″ FullHD+ 90Hz AMOLED display protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. The display has a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric authentication and a hole for the 16MP selfie camera.
The X30’s rear panel – made from 64.5% recycled plastic – features a dual camera setup consisting of a 50MP primary camera (with OIS) and a 13MP ultrawide camera. The Nokia X30 is 8mm thick, has a recycled aluminum frame and weighs 185g. It also has IP67 dust and water resistance.
The Nokia X30 is powered by the Snapdragon 695 SoC and our device has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. It runs Android 12 out of the box and gets three Android version upgrades. Nokia has also promised three years of monthly security updates for the X30.
Filling the whole package is a 4,200 mAh battery with 33W charging support. The smartphone supports QC 3.0, PD 3.0 and PPS standards, so you can use compatible chargers to juice up the X30’s cell.
The rest of the Nokia X30’s highlights include a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC. The smartphone also supports eSIM and 5G networks and comes with OZO Spatial Audio recording.
Our Nokia X30 review is already underway, so stay tuned for our results!
