The new Nokia T20 is designed with the same Scandinavian design philosophy as Nokia phones, a simplified and pure design where every detail, edge and surface finish is curated with ease of use from the outset. The solid metal body structure and polished 3D display frame attach the large display perfectly to the thin metal body, so it’s built to go the distance.

No one wants to be chained to the charging cable, so get ready to unleash the shackles courtesy of long-lasting battery performance. The Nokia T20 powerful 8200mAh battery allows for 15 hours of surfing the web, seven hours of conference calls, or 10 hours watching the latest films with the family.
