Two years after the release of the Nokia XR20 rugged smartphone, we have information on its successor, Nokia XR30. The XR30 follows in the mold of its predecessor’s design, so it doesn’t look starkly different.

Nokia XR30 is showing up with a slightly smaller battery, faster charging, newer processor, and newer software. Most other features and specs are the same. Will we see Nokia’s new custom user interface in it? Time will tell.
