HMD has been releasing a series of Nokia-branded smartphones for the past few years, and now the company has unveiled the first Nokia-branded tablet since 2014.
The Nokia T20 is a 10.4 inch tablet that will ship with Android 11, but which will receive major Android updates for at least two years, and security updates for three. While that’s not as good as the update plan for some of the company’s phones, it’s not bad by modern standards for a tablet with a $250 starting price.
First announced October 6th, the Nokia T20 is now available for purchase in the US and UK for $250 and £180, respectively.
The tablet features solid mid-range specs including a 2000 x 1200 pixel display (with a 5:3 aspect ratio) and support for up to 400 nits of brightness, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and support for microSD cards up to 512GB.
HMD’s first tablet is powered by a Unisoc T610 processor, which is an octa-core chip featuring:
- 2 x ARM Cortex-A75 CPU cores @ 1.8 GHz
- 6 x ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores @ 1.8 GHz
- ARM Mali-G52 MP2 graphics
The tablet has an 8,200 mAh battery and comes with a 10 watt charger, but supports up to 15 watt fast charging if you use a third-party adapter.

Other features include a USB 2.0 Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, stereo speakers, dual microphones, support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 and optional support for 4G LTE and GPS.
The Nokia T20 has an aluminum body, a “toughened glass” screen, and the tablet is IP52 rated for dust and water resistance, which means it’s “protected from limited dust ingress” and from “water spray less than 15 degrees from vertical.”
The tablet measures 247.6 x 157.5 x 7.8mm (9.7″ x 6.2″ ” 0.3″) and weighs 465 grams (about 1 pound).
HMD is selling a WiFi-only model in the US, while customers in the UK have the option of paying £20 extra for a WiF + 4G model.
I bought a Nokia 9, so definitely won’t be buying this. Once bitten twice shy.

“designed to last…”
…36 months?! What a joke. I new it was going to be bad when i first learned about google working on an OS.
Fastforward 36 months, what now? Watch it accumulating critical CVEs? Like i did with my Huawei P10lite, i only saw 15 months of security updates because, you know: “* From the global launch date of ***** ***.”
There are tones of cheap Chinese tablets with that chipset
“USB 2.0 Type-C port” ????
Type C is a physical not functional specification.
