We first got our hands on the Nokia X30 at IFA 2022 in Berlin, and now the phone landed at our office for a full review. We’ve got the Ice White color version, but there’s one more option – Cloudy Blue.
The Nokia X30 comes in a recycled box with the usual paperwork, SIM tool, and a USB-C to USB-C cable. It doesn’t come bundled with the power adapter, though, so you’ll have to buy one separately if you don’t already own a compatible charger.
The Nokia X30 is built around a 6.43″ FullHD+ 90Hz AMOLED screen protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. The display has a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric authentication and a punch hole for the 16MP selfie camera.
The X30’s back panel – made of 64.5% recycled plastic – sports a dual camera setup comprising a 50MP primary camera (with OIS) and a 13MP ultrawide camera. The Nokia X30 is 8mm thick, has a recycled aluminum frame, and weighs 185g. It also has IP67 dust and water resistance.
The Nokia X30 is powered by the Snapdragon 695 SoC, and our unit has 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage onboard. It runs Android 12 out of the box and will get three Android version upgrades. Nokia has also promised three years of monthly security updates for the X30.
Fueling the entire package is a 4,200 mAh battery with 33W charging support. The smartphone supports QC 3.0, PD 3.0, and PPS standards, so you can use compatible chargers to juice up the X30’s cell.
The rest of the Nokia X30’s highlights include a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC. The
