  • HMD has released the Nokia XR21 smartphone in the US.
  • The company is offering a free pair of wireless earbuds with the $499.99 phone.

HMD launched the Nokia XR21 in the UK early last month, following in its predecessor’s footsteps with a rugged design. We didn’t have to wait too long for a US release, as the company has now launched the device stateside.

The Nokia XR21 brings an IP69K rating, Gorilla Glass Victus protection for the screen, and MIL-STD-810H certification. So this combo means it should be able to withstand a few tumbles and the elements.
