HMD T21 tablet makes its global debut


HMD Global has released the HMD T21 tablet, ditching the Nokia brand in favor of its own logo. This device is essentially a rebranded Nokia T21 tablet with a slightly redesigned camera module.

The HMD T21's specifications remain the same as the Nokia T21, meaning it features a 10.36-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels. The display combined with stereo speakers makes it ideal for watching movies and videos.

The display supports WGP or AES 2.0 stylus input, although a stylus is sold separately. The device ships with Android 13, and the company guarantees an update to Android 15 along with security patches by summer 2027.

Under the hood, it contains the Unisoc T612, which is also on board the Nokia T21. The tablet has an 8200 mAh battery with the promise of "up to 3 days" of battery life. That being said, the fine print mentions that the tablet was used for 5 hours daily for testing, so we can expect around 15 hours of battery life from continuous use. For optics, it has an 8-megapixel camera on both the front and back. In addition, it has Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 5 and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
