The coronavirus pandemic has revitalized the tablet market, reviving interest in tablets. In the wake of the growing popularity of tablets, after a long absence, brands such as Xiaomi and Motorola decided to return to the market. HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand, also decided to release its new tablet.
On Wednesday October 6th, HMD Global unveiled a new tablet computer called the Nokia T20. It is an ideal tablet for study and work because it has a long battery life, fast charging, is able to perform all daily tasks related to work and study from home, supports video calls and has parental control, and most importantly, it is safe and durable.
Nokia T20 is based on the Unisoc Tiger T610 chipset, which is made according to a 12-nanometer technological process and includes two Cortex-A75 cores with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. Yes, this is not the most powerful processor, but it is quite energy efficient. The company chip is 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal memory with the possibility of expanding the latter using a microSD memory card.
The front panel of the new Nokia tablet has a 10.4-inch LCD-display with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels, an aspect ratio of 15 to 9 and a standard brightness of 400 nits. The top of the screen is covered with a protective tempered glass. The bezel above the display houses a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. She, as the manufacturer emphasizes, is perfectly optimized for video calls and can recognize faces to quickly unlock the tablet. Another 8-megapixel camera with LED flash is located on the back cover.
The Nokia T20 is powered by the largest battery in its class. Its capacity is 8200 mAh, which, according to company representatives, will allow the tablet to work for about 15 hours without recharging in a typical use scenario. The battery life in continuous talk mode is about 7 hours, and when watching a video, the autonomy indicator reaches 10 hours. The tablet is charged via the USB Type-C port. The maximum charging power reaches 15 W, however, a 10-watt charger is supplied with the tablet. The mobile operating system Android 11 controls everything. Moreover, HMD promises for the Nokia T20 the same level of software support as for the G-series smartphones. This means that tablet users will be able to expect two years of operating system updates and 3 years of monthly security patches.
The Nokia T20 is offered in two versions: Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 4G. Also, both models have support for Wi-Fi 5 ac and Bluetooth 5.0. Prices start at 200 euros for a model with Wi-Fi and 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. The 4G version will go on sale at a price of 240 euros.
