Get rid of phone anxiety with the Nokia XR21: an ultra-durable smartphone designed for life’s adventures

  • The first Nokia smartphone to withstand 100 bar water jet pressure
  • Ultimate durability for every day: drop, dust and water resistant
  • ‘This is a smartphone version of the famous almost indestructible Nokia 3310’

HMD Globalthe owner of the Nokia brand, introduces the Nokia XR21, a smartphone that heals “telephone anxiety” – the fear of the phone being dropped, damaged or malfunctioning – thanks to its proven durability and reassuring two-day battery life.

The equivalent of the Nokia 3310 (the original near-indestructible feature phone), the Nokia XR21 is a drop, dust and water resistant smartphone. It withstands everything from a fall from a trouser pocket and the first impact to the ground to a 72-hour hike in torrential rain.

Adam Ferguson, head of marketing for Nokia phones, says:

“This is a smartphone version of the famous, nearly indestructible Nokia 3310. If you break your smartphone or your battery runs low before a long trip, you can get phone-xiety.” This smartphone was created to eliminate these daily fears; our device is so durable that it can withstand irrigation from a 100 bar water hose jet with a water temperature of 80 °C. In fact, we’re so confident in our new durable hero that we’re offering a one-year screen replacement warranty should the worst happen.”

The Nokia XR21 is built around a die-cast 100% recycled aluminum body and is protected by a durable material body and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® display, designed and certified for impact resistance.

Resistant to drops, dust and water

Thoughtful design and high-quality materials used throughout the Nokia XR21 – including a super-tough display and shock-resistant back cover – eliminate phone anxiety from a dead battery to a cracked screen.

It has received MIL-STD-810H durability certification, making it resistant to drops, dust and water. In addition, during internal testing, the Nokia XR21 survived a drop from a height of 1.8m, as well as immersion in 1.5m of water for up to one hour and a shock with the same pressure as a 100 bar water jet (higher than the bursting pressure of UK fire hoses) with water temperature 80 °C.

Withstand temperature extremes and charging gaps

The durability of the Nokia XR21 extends to battery life. It can last two days between charges. In addition, the Nokia XR21 is up to the task when you find yourself in unpleasant or extreme weather.

It can withstand and be used in temperatures between -20°C and +55°C – the latter one degree less than the highest air temperature recorded on Earth in California’s Death Valley. And the 6.49-inch screen can be used with wet hands, in the rain or while wearing gloves. Perfect for surviving a weekend festival, a day hike or bike ride, or a family trip without a charger.

Fun with AI

Stereo speakers with OZO playback deliver immersive sound that captures every detail of videos, songs and podcasts – perfect for summer picnic fun listening with friends. The best imaging algorithms powered by artificial intelligence found in Nokia devices, such as AI Portrait, Night Mode 2.0 and Flash Shot, ensure that memories are captured in excellent quality. For noisy environments, the 96dB stereo speakers come with a sound boost mode that helps you hear amplified sounds instead of background noise. Two quick access buttons allow you to access your favorite applications and functions even faster.

Safe and secure, inside and out

The Nokia XR21 comes with four years of monthly security updates, three years of operating system upgrades, a three-year warranty and a one-year screen replacement warranty. It protects you online, as well as your smartphone, from everything life throws at it.

Prices and availability

Nokia XR21 will be available in June or in July 2023 in green and black for €599 (version 6/128 Gb).
