Nokia is releasing a new mid-range phone in the United States and several other countries. With a 6.82-inch HD+ display, large battery, audio port, and 18W fast charger, the new G50 costs $299 and has all the components to be a competitive midrange phone.
The Nokia X20, which was released in April 2021, is comparable to the G50, however, the G50 has a larger screen and battery, as well as a North American-specific variant. It supports the slower 5G Sub 6 standard, which means it will work on T-5G Mobile’s network but not Verizon’s mmWave network, and AT&T will only get 4G coverage.
The Nokia G50, like other $300 5G phones, is powered by a tiny Snapdragon 480 CPU, so don’t anticipate the fastest speed or smoothest gaming experience. It includes 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a microSD slot for backing up images or sideloading apps. Additionally, it has a slightly larger HD+ 6.82-inch display with 450 nits of brightness and a v-shaped notch around its front 8-megapixel camera than Motorola’s G50. A triple-camera array is positioned in a circle on the back of the Nokia G50. The 48-megapixel normal camera will undoubtedly get the most use, but the 5-megapixel Ultrawide and 2-megapixel depth sensor cameras can add some interesting perspectives to your photographs but are likely to be of inferior quality. Its front selfie camera also has video stabilization to help you fix those fuzzy TikTok videos, as well as a Night Selfie mode to brighten your selfies in low light.
The device will arrive with Android 11 and will receive two years of OS updates and three years of monthly security patches, according to HMD Global, the company that makes Nokia phones. In other words, this low-cost phone will not become obsolete in a few years, which is excellent for the environment and for consumers who want to get longer usage out of their phones before replacing them.
Lastly, the Nokia G50 comes in two colors: Ocean Blue and Midnight Sun, and comes preloaded with Spotify and a 30-day trial of ExpressVPN. It will be available for preorder on the company’s website starting today.
Overall, the Nokia G50 seems like a decent device for a mid-ranger. The bonus is the two years OS updates which means users will not have to worry about getting a new device for quite some time. After examining the specs we can say for sure that the device will be able to carry out functions such as file sharing with ease.
We will have to test the device out to deliver a final verdict but for now, it seems like a decent device with a reasonable price tag. However, at a glance users will definitely be getting their money’s worth with the Nokia G50.
