A few days ago we told you that the Nokia X100 5G wax now available exclusively in the states of T-Mobile and Metro from T-Mobile. Priced at $252, the Nokia X100 gives you affordable entry into the world of 5G connectivity. The carrier’s equipment payment plan (EIP) lets you own the phone while making 24 monthly payments of $10.50.
And with T-Mobile, the device is free if you add a line. That equates to 24 monthly payments of $0. We would like to tell you about the 60-second informational ad for the Nokia X100 made by Nokia licensee HMD Global. The video is titled “New Nokia X100. A complete entertainment experience.”
The Nokia X100 is an affordable 5G handset that costs $252 from T-Mobile and Metro
The commercial starts with the rear camera array using ZEISS optics. On the back are a 48MP primary camera, a 5MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro camera. If you’re marketing your phone as “built for entertainment” as Nokia is, the screen is very important and the X100 has a 6.67-inch LCD display with an FHD+ resolution (1080+).
Finally, we checked, audio is also part of the entertainment experience on a smartphone. Thus, the Nokia X100 offers immersive OZO audio that is designed not only to make streaming music sound better, but also to make mobile game players feel like they are in a game. A battery of 4470 mAh gives the Nokia X100 a battery life of two days, with charging taking place at 18 W.
Yes, that’s a 3.5mm headphone jack you saw in the video. And under the hood, the Nokia X100 packs a Snapdragon 480 chipset along with 6GB of memory and 128GB of expandable storage (a microSD slot with a capacity of 1TB is included). Android 11 comes pre-installed and there’s a 16MP punch-hole selfie snapper on the front.
If you’re looking to gift someone a 5G phone for the holidays (even if you’re the gift recipient), the Nokia X100 is a steal. It supports T-Mobile’s 600MHz low-band Extended Range 5G and the 2.5GHz mid-band Ultra Capacity 5G. The latter may not be as fast as mmWave 5G, but finding such a signal is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
T-Mobile’s Ultimate Capacity 5G offers download data speed peaking at 1Gbps
The mid-band spectrum that T-Mobile acquired with the acquisition of Sprint provides users with an average download speed of 245 Mbps and shows how brilliant the acquisition of Sprint was for T-Mobile. There’s no question that Verizon slammed car doors with its own fingers by focusing on mmWave, but T-Mobile still had to take full advantage of this opening it did with its $26.5 billion purchase of Sprint.
Interestingly, not everyone knew what T-Mobile was up to, and they wondered if Legere and the company had gone crazy taking on the FCC and DOJ to buy a failing postpaid carrier. By the time the rest of the industry saw through T-Mobile’s plans, it was too late and T-Mobile had already taken the lead in 5G in the US.
Without mid-band spectrum, which extends beyond mmWave and offers faster download speeds than low-band, Verizon and AT&T were forced to spend more than $68 billion to buy C-band spectrum in the 3.7GHz-4.2GHz range. . But as if things couldn’t get any worse for T-Mobile’s top competitors, it turns out that the C-band frequencies Verizon and AT&T hoped to use are too close to the 4.2GHz-4.4GHz used by aviation signals.
