The Nokia T20 tablet has been teased by Nokia, and is tipped to launch early next month. As part of a teaser, Nokia Mobile took to Twitter to confirm the launch date for October 6. The launch will likely be a global event, but given that Nokia typically considers the Indian market to be a fairly important one, the tablet may follow suit with a launch in India, soon after. Not much is already known about the tablet, but if the teaser post is anything to go by, the Nokia T20 likely targets the entry level of the tablet market – offering the essentials of a budget Android tablet, at an affordable price point.
Nokia T20: expected specifications
The Nokia T20 appears to feature flat edges akin to the new generation Apple iPad design language. The edges are not as taut as Apple’s design, and the teaser post shows a bifurcated, chamfered side edge that most likely has a curved glass at the top. The edges of the laptop are rounded gently, and the left side of the tablet is completely devoid of any input or output recess. Its teaser image alongside a Nokia 3310 4G further affirms that Nokia may focus on build quality and simplicity of usage, rather than play the specifications game.
In terms of rumours, the Nokia T20 is reportedly tipped to feature a 10.36 inch display, and in terms of performance, is expected to feature a Unisoc chipset, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. While these specifications sound rather basic, the Nokia T20 is expected to feature a USB-C port, and come with both 4G and dual-band Wi-Fi in terms of its connectivity range. It is, of course, tipped to also have a Wi-Fi only variant in its range, too. Other details, such as its cameras, battery and charging speed compatibility remain under wraps for now.
Pricing and availability
In terms of its tipped pricing, the Nokia T20 tablet has been projected to cost EUR 185 for its Wi-Fi only model, while the Wi-Fi + LTE model is said to cost EUR 202, which equate to approximately Rs 16,000 and Rs 17,500, respectively. At this price point, it will appeal to entry segment tablet buyers looking for a larger display, to which only the Samsung Galaxy Tab A caters to at the moment. While the latest generation iPad is also a choice at a slightly higher price, those looking for Android tablets should keep their eyes out for this one to launch in India.
