Nokia’s first smartphone with a punch-hole selfie camera is now official.

Dubbed the Nokia X71, the glass sandwich made its debut in Taiwan on Tuesday, bringing with its a solid spec sheet.

It’s a mid-range device, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset is proof of this. But Nokia’s also threw in 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for good measure.

All this is hidden behind a 6.4 inch 2316×1080 LCD display with a 16MP f/2.0 snapper embedded into a hole in its top right corner.

At the rear, the focus on photography continues with three sensors, chief of which is a 48MP f/1.8 snapper with phase-detection autofocus. It’s joined by an 8MP ultrawide, and a 5MP depth sensor.

Internally, the phone has a 3500mAh battery, while externally, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port.

Being it a Nokia, the X71 also features Android 9.0 Pie through the Android One programme, which guarantees at least two years of timely OS updates and upgrades.

While the phone is a mid-ranger, it’s not completely clear where it will fit in Nokia’s hierarchy.

As for the price, it’ll fetch TWD 11 900 (around $390) in Taiwan, and will go on sale from 30 April.
