HMD Global, the company behind the Nokia brand, has updated much of its smartphone catalog during IFA 2022. One of its new products is the Nokia X30 5G , a mid-range terminal whose main novelty is not the features it offers at the performance level, but the "ecological" features that accompany it.

The Nokia X30 5G arrives with a Snapdragon 695, dual camera with a 50 MP main sensor and a 6.43-inch screen, but without a charger. Let's see it in detail.

Nokia comes on eco-friendly

As we mentioned above, Nokia wanted the X30 5G to stand out for more than just its technical features. The company ensures that the frame of the terminal has been manufactured with 100% recycled aluminum and the back part with 65% recycled plastic. In addition, they point out, focusing on packaging has allowed them to reduce the ecological footprint of the terminal.

The cardboard box is made up of 70% recycled paper and, excluding the charger, is smaller in size. In this way, Nokia points out that it can transport more phones in the same space, which translates into a reduction in CO2 emissions. The absence of the charger also responds to address the problem of electronic waste.


The Nokia X30 5G comes with a Snapdragon 695 5G SoC, a mid-range Qualcomm proposal that we saw arriving at the end of 2021 and that was behind the Snapdragon 778G+ 5G in terms of performance. You will be able to opt for versions of 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

If we talk about the battery, it has a capacity of 4,200 mAh and supports fast charging of 33 W, although we will have to get a separate USB-C charger since it is not included. Do you remember that move by Apple to stop including this accessory ? It is now being replicated by many manufacturers, each with their own arguments.


The truth is that, in addition to its construction materials, another of the interesting points of the Nokia X30 5G is found in the photographic section. The terminal has a 50 MP PureView main camera with optical image stabilization and a 3 MP ultra wide angle, both protected by Gorilla Glass.

In the display section, very important when defining the use of the terminal to consume content and calculate its size in your pocket, a 6.43-inch AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2400), a refresh rate of 90 Hz and brightness up to 700 nits. This is also protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
