The phone is pre-installed with the Android 12 system. The Nokia X30 supports 3 operating system updates and 3 years of security patch updates. So the handset can be upgraded to Android 15.
HMD promotes circular subscriptions manufactured from recycled materials to extend the life of devices and reduce e-waste as people upgrade. The metal frame of the Nokia X30 is made of 100% recycled aluminum, while the plastic back is made of 65% recycled material. Even the retail box is made from 70% recycled paper (all FSC certified). Of course, the charger is no longer included in the box, making it smaller and easier to transport.
