Nokia Unveils Minor Upgrade in New T21 Tablet

Nokia has released an upgraded version of its budget T20 tablet, the new T21. This latest model brings small but meaningful improvements over its predecessor, justifying the same affordable price point.

Sleek and Sturdy Premium Design

The T21 sports a visibly refined design language with sturdy yet sleek aluminum and plastic build quality that looks and feels more premium than its price suggests.

Its 10.4-inch 1200×2000 pixel IPS display promises vivid colors, decent 224 ppi sharpness, and ample brightness for indoor use.

Modest Power Meets Everyday Needs

Under the hood, an Unisoc T612 chip with octa-core CPU delivers adequate if unexceptional speed for lighter mobile tasks. It likely won’t set any performance records, but the T612 shouldn’t leave buyers wanting either given realistic expectations at this price point.

Smooth, Supported Software

On the software front, Nokia sticks to clean Android 12 for smooth performance straight out of the box while guaranteeing 2 years of operating system updates.

This ensures buyers get not only a responsive user interface today, but likely in the future as well.

Solid Features and Battery Life Go the Distance

The T21 also packs loud stereo speakers and a large 8200mAh battery that lasted around 7 hours in independent testing. This battery life is comfortably above average and enables all-day video, web, and even gaming usage on a single charge.

HD Streaming and Stylus Added

New additions include HD Netflix streaming support at 1080p resolution, a welcome bonus for video lovers. The T21 additionally works with an optional Nokia Pen stylus for drawing and handwritten note-taking.

Appealing Balance of Price and Performance

While these updates over the prior T20 tablet remain relatively minor, Nokia smartly targets budget buyers unconcerned with leading-edge speed.

For under $240, buyers get quality craftsmanship, solid essential features, very good battery life, and durable software support. This represents an appealing overall package.
