The Android tablet revival continues, and the Nokia HMD brand enters the scene. The first Nokia T20 tablet is in the next category. Nokia is struggling with a cheap market with a $249.99 tablet with a 10.4-inch screen.
Let's talk about specs. The SoC is a Unisoc Tiger T610 (Unisoc SoC Rare Component). It is a 12nm chip with A75 cores at 1.8GHz and six A55 cores at 1.8GHz. The A75 cores are quite old and were last seen in the original flagship with the Snapdragon 845 in 2017, so this is an entry-level chip. There is 4GB of RAM, 512GB of storage and a very large 8200mAh battery. The 10.4-inch LCD has a resolution of 2000 x 1200 and is encased in "toughened glass" (read: not regular Gorilla Glass). It has an aluminum back, a microSD slot, stereo speakers, front and rear cameras, a 15W USB-C port, and a headphone jack. There is no fingerprint sensor. Nokia display sells lapel bag for an unknown amount. This device comes with Android 11 and has two years of major OS updates and three years of security updates.
An interesting design decision for the Nokia T20 corner-mounted headphone jack? Position the headphone jack's bottom right corner at a 45-degree angle. Will it be effective? People sometimes grab their pills in the bottom corners, so that doesn't bother you? I think you can hold the tablet upside down, but then put the device over the viewfinder. I hope HMD can ensure that most headphone jacks do not fall off the table when using the kickstand back cover.
Regardless, it's great to see Android tablets come back, especially with the foldable feature pushing the form factor forward on phones. And bring back Google's desire for an Android 12.1 tablet and entertainment space. Right now, we just need bigger apps. Please developers? The Nokia T20 will be available on November 17th.
