HMD Global, the Finnish home of Nokia phones, has launched its newest device in the X-series. As promised, the company has launched the Nokia X71 in Taiwan alongside the flagship Nokia 9 PureView. It is the first smartphone from the company to feature punch-hole display design. It is also first smartphone in the X-series from Nokia to launch outside of China. This indicates that the company might launch the device as Nokia X71 in other markets as well but the leaks so far suggest that it will debut globally as Nokia 6.2 or the Nokia 8.1 Plus.
Nokia X71 Launch: Specifications and Price
The Nokia X71 builds on the design language seen on previous Nokia X-series smartphones. It sports a dual sided 2.5D glass and the power button has what Nokia calls as breathing light.

It features a 6.39-inch PureDisplay with Full HD+ resolution, 93 percent screen to body ratio and sports 19.3:9 aspect ratio.
