Nokia's Eco-friendly smartphones launched!

As one of their main highlights, these devices are made of recyclable materials. The X30 5G uses 100 percent recycled aluminum with a rear cover of 65 percent recycled plastic. On the other hand, the G60 5G  also offers 100 percent recycled plastic on its back cover and 60 percent reprocessed material on the frame.

Nokia also opted for a simpler approach in their designs but still rocks an elegant look, especially on the lighter color variants. These two comes in either Ice gray and Black colorways.

Moving to hardware, the X30 uses a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with an FHD+ resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, 90Hz refresh rate, up to 700 nits maximum brightness, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection. It also has an under-display fingerprint sensor as the phone's security.

At the helm, it uses a 6nm 2.4GHz SD695 octa-core processor with Adreno 619 GPU. It is coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage.

The phone is also powered with a 4,200mAh capacity battery and can charge using the USB-C and 33W fast charger.

Its rear cameras have 50MP for the main with OIS and a 13MP ultrawide angle module. Both of these rear shooters are also protected with Gorilla Glass DX+. Meanwhile, the selfie snapper uses a 16MP sensor.

Moving to the G60 5G, it has a slightly bigger display of 6.58-inch but now uses an LCD panel, although the refresh rate is increased up to 120Hz and retains the FHD+ resolution. For protection, it uses the lower Gorilla Glass 5.

Inside, it uses a similar processor as the one above, although the RAM and storage options are lower with 4/64GB, 4/128GB, and 6/128GB UFS2.2. The memory is also expandable through the microSD slot.

The battery is also slightly bigger with a 4,500mAh battery but charges slower with the USB-C and a 20W power adapter.

For cameras, this is using a smaller 50MP sensor and the OIS is removed. It is also accompanied by 5MP for ultrawide and an unspecified MP for depth shooting.

Other features will be water and dust resistance ratings such as IP67 for the X30 5G and IP54 for the G60 5G.

For connectivity, both devices have 5G, 4G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, GPS, IR blaster (X30 only), and dual nano SIMs or SIM + microSD as well as eSIM options/

Moreover, the two phone's OS will be Android 12 out of the box with a promise of up to 3 OS updates, security, patches, and an extended 3-year warranty.

Nokia also has the Circular subscription service, which is a new way to select Nokia phones and tablets. This is the company's way to encourage its customer to keep their devices longer as they will be rewarding them with eco-friendly awards. However, if you end up losing or breaking your gadget, a replacement will be sent to you right away without charging you any additional monthly fees.

After a couple years of usage, you can send the device back, and HMD will take care of it. If it can be repaired and sold again, it will do so; if it can no longer be sold, it will be donated. They will recycle it if none of those options are available.

However, for now, this movement is currently available only in UK and Germany. While a bigger rollout is expected to come to other regions in the following months.

Europe price with direct to PHP conversion (no taxes and duties yet):

Nokia G60 5G - starts at EUR 319 (around PHP 18K)
Nokia X30 5G - starts at EUR 529 (around PHP 29.9K)

The two handsets will be available globally starting today however we cannot say yet if they will come to the Philippines. 

Stay tuned.
