Nokia brand licensee HMD Global is gearing up to launch a rugged smartphone on July 27th and is calling it a phone “that will never require a case”. Post the teaser, speculations started surfacing that the phone would be the Nokia XR20 that was spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website with the model number TA-1362, and its specifications were revealed by a Russian e-commerce website. Now, completing the circle, a render of the phone has surfaced on the Nokia Community forum. The image shows the phone in dark blue colour, and considering the phone is covered in water droplets, we can expect it will have IP68 rating.

The Nokia XR20 seems to have a square camera cutout on the back and it may house at least dual cameras and an LED flash. There’s also a Nokia logo. On the bottom, it has a USB Type-C port, speaker grille, primary microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the left side, it has a power button with a textured finish. From the image, it’s pretty evident the phone will have strong build quality, probably could be the strongest Nokia phone.
