The Nokia X100 flaunts a 6.67-inch display with 2400 x 1080 pixels FHD+ resolution with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone features a quad-camera setup at the rear with a 48MP primary shooter.

Nokia X100 In India: Threat To JioPhone Next?

The Nokia X100 comes like any other mid-range smartphone from Redmi, Samsung, Vivo, and other brands. Presently, the company hasn't announced if the Nokia X100 will arrive in other markets. If the phone comes to India, it'll likely partner with a few network carriers to make the phone exclusive with 5G support. Since the phone is more expensive than the JioPhone Next, the Nokia X100 can't compete with it. That said, it would up the competition with other mid-rangers from Chinese OEMs.
