The most eco-friendly Nokia phone yet – inspired by nature, built to protect it

Designed in Finland and built from a 100% recycled aluminium frame and a 65% recycled plastic back, Nokia X30 5G is our most eco-friendly smartphone yet, right through to the box it comes in. Less plastic, fewer chemicals, more good stuff. The reduced packaging size – made possible by our decision to remove chargers from X-series to tackle e-waste - saves on transportation CO2 emissions. Using 100% FSC certified and 94% recycled paper box, we are promoting responsible forestry and supporting circular economy. This all means that Nokia X30 5G delivers the smallest eco footprint of a Nokia phone to date.

Through continued partnership with Ecologi, all Nokia X30 5G owners are given the gift to plant trees from their purchase.

If 1 million people held onto their Nokia X30 5G for an extra year, they would save the same CO2e as needed to power 5,253 homes for a whole year.

Packed with new, game-changing features

Take breathtaking imagery with the big pixel 50MP PureView camera which uses AI and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to capture content in even higher detail. It’s complete with an all-new, intuitive dropdown menu giving you faster access to most used camera settings. Capture Fusion brings the power of the main camera to your ultra-wide-angle shots, for more details in the center of the picture, while Night Mode 2.0, with Dark Vision, Tripod Mode and Night Selfie, give you sharper and more vibrant shots, even after sundown.

The camera is also protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass with DX+, permitting 98% of all light through the lens to deliver industry-leading optical performance, and scratch resistance. Because the more light you get in, the better images you get out.

Sporting the best display on a Nokia phone yet, Nokia X30 5G with its 6.43” 90Hz PureDisplay delivers a smoother, more responsive experience. The AMOLED PureDisplay technology means more brightness and vibrant colours to make streaming, scrolling, browsing, and holding the device, a joy.

Power up faster than ever before with 33W fast charging⁴ and enjoy the signature two-day battery life², remaining healthy even after years of charging. Equipped with Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 695 to optimise the potential of 5G, Nokia X30 5G is ready for long-term use. The Nokia X30 5G also comes with the GoPro Quik App preinstalled so you can shoot, edit, and share your creativity from anywhere.
