Nokia’s new ‘life-proof’ phone XR20 is coming
Nokia is bringing a ‘life-proof’ phone next month. Earlier this year, Nokia’s owner HMD Global announced a reshuffle of the phone business. The company has announced to bring a new phone XR20 in its continuation. Nokia claims that this is the first phone in the ‘Life-Proof’ series.
Nokia also showed how durable the new phone is by posting a video on Twitter. Technology site Gizmodo reports that Nokia’s new ‘Life-Proof’ phone will hit the US market on August 24, priced at 500. It is by far the most expensive phone in Nokia’s updated portfolio.
Nokia has long won the title of making a sustainable phone with a feature phone. Users at one time preferred models like the Nokia 3310 and 1100 to call them durable and robust phones. Nokia 3310 phone still occupies a big place in the meme culture of the internet world.
