The XR20 is not nearly as flashy or innovative as some of Nokia’s most premium telephones in recent years, but it’s nice to see Nokia/HMD try and come back to their roots with a very simple and well designed phone.

When it arrives next month, the Nokia XR20 is in two colors (Ultra Blue and Gray Granite).
