A while back, we reported that Nokia’s X20 handset was included in a list of several companies and brands that were eligible for enrolling in the Android 13 beta program, as part of Google’s announcements during its I/O Conference back in May. Owners of the X20 were able to register their device for the Android 13 Beta, which introduces some new features (albeit at the expense of stability) that will come with Android 13 once the final version launches.
New update features
1- The system is stable
2- The main camera app is back
3- The device has become more smooth and fast as well
But I can't sync contacts and have to add them manually
2- There are no gestures like double tap to light up the screen and the rest of the gestures

A post from Twitter user @MohaHotlain points out that a new update for the Android 13 Beta is now available for download, and is currently available in Egypt. The new update addresses issues with system stability, a fix for the main camera app, and overall improvements regarding performance speeds. There are a couple of issues though, such as problems with double-tap gestures and contact syncing.
Nokia was among many partner brands and companies listed by Google at the I/O Conference for the latter’s Android 13 Beta Test Program. This also includes manufacturers like OnePlus, Vivo, Xiaomi, and more.
The company initially mentioned some disclaimers for beta users – for one, the Beta is not intended for general use, and may come with performance and stability issues. Going back to Android 12 will also result in a loss of data, so users are urged to back up their files should they decide to revert to the official Android 12 version.
Users can expect the update to arrive in more regions over the following days.
