Starts at GBP 179.99. The price is justified from its numerous features and build.
During the 6th October Launch Event, Nokia unveiled a new tablet (the Nokia G50 was released earlier) that runs Android called “Tablet T20”. It is the second tablet made by Nokia that runs Android. It is targeted towards budget-conscious consumers.
While certainly a budget tablet in all respects, it has interestingly, a premium finish. The entire frame and back is made of aluminium, and has an IP52 resistance rating. This should make the tablet resistant to mild to moderate liquid splashes. Unlike tablets from contemporary manufacturers, the bezels on this tablet is not that slim, it’s actually quite visible. We do appreciate the rounded look, this makes the tablet less straining and more comfortable to hold.
Under the hood of the T20 is the UNISOC T610 SoC which has a performance similar to the Helio G80 or G85. This SoC is coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The UNISOC T610 uses two Cortex A-75 cores at 1.8GHz and six Cortex A-55 power efficiency cores clocked at the same 1.8GHz speed. This is, by definition, an octa-core chipset.
The biggest highlight of this tablet is its display. It uses a 10.4in. 2K resolution IPS LCD panel with a 5:3 aspect ratio. It has a total peak brightness of 400nits. We are not expecting AMOLED here anyway considering its target audience. In addition, it has SGS Low Blue light certification, which should make the tablet less straining even without reading mode.
There are two cameras: a single 8mp rear shooter and a single 5mp front shooter for video calls. The front camera comes with a LED Flash so that you can take selfies even at the darkest areas.
The tablet has dual speakers with Nokia’s OZO technology as well as dual mic. There’s only about a few ways to unlock as Nokia did not include a fingerprint sensor for the tablet. For the battery, you get a hefty 8200mAh battery with 18W fast charging charged through USB-C. The tablet comes with a 10W charger in the box.
The tablet is available in one colour only, that is Deep Ocean and is priced GBP179.99 (~Php 12.3K) for the Wi-Fi variant and GBP199.99 (~Php 13.7K) for the 4G LTE variant. It ships with Android 11 out of the box and comes bundled with Google Kids Space for use in children’s learning, as well as Google Entertainment Space, which is essentially all things Google Play combined into one. Pre-orders start today but the tablet would only start shipping on 11th October.
