Furthermore, there is some more interesting info coming online about the Nokia X20. According to the official website, the smartphone will not come with a wall charger in the box. Customers will have to use their existing charger or buy a new one to juice up the X20.
Nokia X20 will skip the charger like Apple?

To recall, Apple is the first brand to take this trend forward by forgoing the charger for ecological reasons. Now, Nokia is picking up on the trend and following the idea for its upcoming device. Currently, there is no information if the decision from the brand to ship the Nokia X20 without a charger is limited to specific regions. If it will be available for all the markets where the device will be sold. Moreover, we are not sure whether they will do this with their other smartphones.

However, is this is a sound decision by the company? The smartphones from Apple, Samsung, and Mi, which do not ship with a charger, are high-end devices. These brands can justify their action of skipping the charger by saying that the people buying a high-end phone will have money to spend on a charging adapter. Although, the same might not be true for HMD Global. The Nokia X20, however, is a low-end/mid-range smartphone.
