Nokia’s rugged XR20 phone coming to US with three years of updates, $550 price

TL;DR

  • Today, HMD Global announced it is bringing the Nokia XR20 to the United States on August 24, 2021.
  • The $550 phone boasts MIL-STD 810H durability but its specs are fairly weak.
  • You’ll also be able to get the phone in the United Kingdom starting today.

However, HMD Global isn’t content with that. The company’s Nokia XR20 is a rugged device with one of the strongest smartphone display coverings available. It makes multiple durability promises including the military-grade MIL-STD 810H and IP68 certifications.

Considering the device’s durability, HMD expects it to last you quite a while. Thankfully, the company will also deliver three years of Android upgrades and an additional year of security patches to the phone.

Of course, the phone can’t be perfect. Its processor is quite weak and its imaging system will leave a lot to be desired. Check out the specs below.
