The company calls the Nokia X30 5G its “greenest” smartphone, as it is made from 100% recycled aluminum and 65% recycled plastic. Otherwise, the Nokia X30 meets expectations from a mid-range model.

The smartphone received a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 695, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of built-in. Its screen has a diagonal of 6.43 inches and uses an AMOLED PureDisplay matrix with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels, a refresh rate of 90 Hz, and protective glass Gorilla Glass.

Despite the trend toward more modules in mid-range smartphones, Nokia X30 received two main cameras:

  • 50-megapixel wide-angle PureView with 1/1.57” matrix, f/1.8 aperture and optical stabilization;
  • 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 1/3.06″ matrix, f/2.4 aperture, 123-degree viewing angle, and electronic stabilization.

The front camera in the smartphone is 16-megapixel with f/2.4 aperture and optical stabilization.

Wireless capabilities of the Nokia X30 5G include Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and Wi-Fi. The model’s built-in battery has a capacity of 4200 mAh and supports fast charging up to 33 W. At the same time, the dimensions of the Nokia X30 5G are 158.9×73.9×7.99 mm, and the weight is 185 grams.

As you can see, functionally, the new HMD smartphone is not too different from other models in its price segment, namely 529 euros declared by the company. However, it has two interesting features. First, it is protected against water and dust according to the IP67 standard, which allows you to submerge the case in water to a depth of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Second, HMD ships the Nokia X30 5G with Android 12, but promises 3 years of monthly security updates and 3 major OS updates. So the model should get Android 15 in the future if the company keeps its promise.
