Nokia XR20 5G Expected Price and Pre-booking date:
Nokia has now announced that pre-orders for the this smartphone will begin on October 20. The phone was first released in Europe in July of this year. The phone costs €499 and has been available since July. If we convert that price to Indian Rupees, it comes out to roughly Rs 43500. However, we’re not sure how such a low price would help Nokia sell this phone in India, where the demand for tough phones is still rather low. However, we estimate that it will cost roughly Rs 40000.
