Industry-recognised security and software expertise

As with Nokia phones, security and software remain a key focus. Two years of OS upgrades for the next steps in Android™ available at your fingertips, along with three years of monthly security updates to help protect against the latest threats. When it comes to screen time, helping to keep children safe is just as important as nurturing their creativity and learning. The Nokia T20 comes with Google Kids Space, a trusted kids mode for children to explore apps, books and videos to nurture their inquisitive minds. Google Kids Space works in parallel with your child’s Google Account, which parents can help manage with Family Link parental controls2.

Design backed by industry-recognised Nokia smartphone expertise

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.

Long-lasting battery life empowering work, learning and play

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 8200mAh3 battery allows for 15 hours of surfing the web4, seven hours of conference calls, or 10 hours watching the latest films with the family. The tablet also comes with faster charging, meaning that you can get back to doing what’s important, quicker.

Immerse yourself in the things you love

Whether you’re watching the latest show or smashing a gaming personal best, the details will pop with the Nokia T20 2K display. And, with the ongoing rise in video calls5, Nokia T20 is perfectly suited to handle important business meetings to a nail-biting virtual quiz. Not only that, but the tablet is also blue light certified so that you can go the distance whilst being kind to your eyes.

When it’s time to relax, simply kick back and enjoy an audiobook with the kids or your favourite music with stunning sound quality. Thanks to Stereo speakers with OZO Playback, you’ll catch every detail when it matters most, so you can enjoy a truly immersive listening experience. And, with Dual Microphones, feel assured that you’ll be heard when you’re in noisy surroundings, so you won’t be saying, “can you hear me now?”.

The business partner you can rely on to go the distance

The Nokia T20 joins the broadest fleet of Android Recommended devices (AER) that meet Google’s strict enterprise requirements, which means a device you can trust to support your business. The new tablet also works in harmony with HMD Enable Pro, the enterprise mobility management solution designed for ease of use and managing deployed devices from its one-stop-shop interface.

Durable and long-lasting accessories for the perfect companions to the Nokia T20

As people want smaller gadgets, the Micro range is here to supply. The unique charge-through technology allows them to be miniaturised to fit comfortably in all ears whilst still holding over nine hours of battery life. Complemented by a super slim charging case that delivers additional 18 hours of listening time, the compactness doesn’t compromise on sound quality.

Designed to go the distance and give you extra peace of mind, Nokia T20’s purpose-built Rugged cover provides extra protection by gelling perfectly with the device. The Nokia T20’s Flip cover keeps Nokia T20 as fresh as it was on day one, with its versatile design.
