The rise of tablets sales has been almost directly proportional to the global pandemic as we are confined behind the four walls without any physical interactions. Tablets sale (mainly the Android ones) is currently in all-time high since 2014 and Nokia is seeking a piece of the pie as well, and we do not blame them.
After being overtaken by HMD Global, Nokia has been mostly focusing on its mid-rangers and entry-level phones, and it feels like now is the right time for the company to set its feet in the new market.
Nokia T20: What does it offer?
As you would expect from Nokia, the Nokia T20 is a big chungus sitting in with a 10.4-inch screen diagonally. It’s a 2K LCD panel with 2,000 x 1,200-pixel resolution and 400 nits of brightness, which is pretty decent but not a game-changer either.
Powering the tablet is a Unisoc T610 octa-core processor with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage. If the storage is too low for you, you can always expand it via a microSD card up to 512GB.
The camera hasn’t always been the main forte of tablets and things stay true here too — the Nokia T20 brings a 5MP selfie camera and an 8MP rear shooter. Nothing impressive but just ok to get through your video meetings and online classes. Thankfully, there’s a USB-C port for charging the 8,200mAh battery with a 15W charging speed, and you get a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
As you would expect from Nokia, the tablet boots on near-to-stock Android 11 and the company says it’ll get 2 years of OS upgrade and an additional 1 year of security updates. In case of the connectivity option, you get LTE models as well as WiFi-only variants.
Apart from that, there’s nothing special, and we can basically call it a big Nokia phone.
