For the past couple of years, Nokia’s phones have been manufactured by a company called HMD Global. Previously, the company manufactured its devices in Asia, however, it’s decided to change things up. HMD Global is not making its phones in Europe, and the first phone to come from this is the Nokia XR21, according to Phone Arena.

This is a pretty notable step, as the company is the first major smartphone brand to move its manufacturing to Europe. Future Nokia phones will come from Europe, and it appears that the company will also manufacture its HMD-branded phones in Europe as well.

The Nokia XR21 was made in Europe, and here are its specs

First and foremost, this is not a new phone.  If you’re unfamiliar with this phone, it’s okay. It was meant for the enterprise customers, not your average Joe. The company actually launched this phone in Europe.

The Nokia XR21 is a rugged phone that’s meant to be taken on the job. It’s for construction workers, factory workers, and other hard jobs. It has a MIL-STD-810H durability rating. Also, it has an IP69K water and dust resistance rating.

Moving onto the display, this phone sports a large 6.4-inch display. It’s not groundbreaking, but it does have a 120Hz refresh rate.

Keeping the lights on, there’s a large 4,800mAh battery. That will keep the phone powered for the word day and them some. Also, if you need a quick charge, this phone supports 33W fast charging.

The Nokia XR21 uses the mid-range Snapdragon 695 SoC. That’s not the most powerful chip out there, but it will still give the phone some decent performance. That’s backed up by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Moving onto the camera, this phone has a 64MP main camera that’s accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera. Not the best camera package, but you’re not looking for professional picture quality on the job.

The Nokia XR21 will receive three major Android OS upgrades, so you know that you’ll be able to keep it for a while. We’re excited to see what other phones will come out of this change.
