Nokia PureBook X14 specifications
The Nokia PureBook X14 comes with a 14-inch Full HD LED-backlit display that’s powered by Dolby Vision. Bezels around the laptop are thin which means more screen area for the users (86 percent screen-to-body ratio). It comes with two USB 3.1 ports, one USB 2.0 port, and one USB-C port, along with an HDMI port, an Ethernet (RJ45) port, and a 3.5mm audio jack on the laptop.
As far as connectivity goes, you get Wi-Fi on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and Bluetooth v5.1.
Powering this entire package is an Intel 10th-Gen i5 processor with a performance that clocks at a maximum 4.2GHz. It comes paired with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Graphics processing is taken care of by Intel’s UHD 620 Graphics with 1.1GHz Turbo GPU, that supports 4K resolution videos in HDR. It ships with Windows 10 Home Plus and adds Intel’s Quick Sync Video, InTru 3D, and Clear Video HD technologies.
You get a backlit keyboard with the PureBook X14 and Nokia says that it has equipped it with a precision touchpad that supports multiple gesture inputs. In terms of battery back-up, Nokia claims that you’ll easily be able to get 8-hours of support bundled with a 65W charger.
