Nokia Launches 4 Affordable G and C Series Phones

Along with its sustainable 5G X-series handsets, Nokia also launched a couple of entry-level phones including two G-series handsets and two C-series phones with Android 11 Go Edition. The G-series phones, i.e., Nokia G20 and G10, will receive OS updates for two years.

Nokia G20 and G10

Design and Display

The Nokia G10 and G20 look a lot like the Nokia X-series smartphones launched yesterday except for the waterdrop notch on the display. The handsets are built around a 6.52-inch LCD with 720p+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The screen refresh rate is standard 60 Hz.

They will be available in two colors namely Glacier and Night.

Internals and Storage

As for the innards, the Nokia G20 gets preferential treatment and comes with a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset topped with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB onboard storage.

The Nokia G10 is powered by Helio G25 instead and offers 3 GB or 4 GB RAM along with 32 GB or 64 GB onboard storage.

Both phones boot Android 11 and come with a dedicated microSD card slot.

Cameras

At the back, the Nokia G20 features a camera configuration similar to the Nokia X10. It comes with a 48 MP main sensor topped with a 5 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP depth sensor, and a 2 MP macro cam. The selfie camera is an 8 MP single sensor shooter. However, it lacks ZEISS optics.

In contrast, the Nokia G10 sports a 13 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP setup on the back and an 8 MP selfie cam on the front.

Battery and Pricing

The phones pack a 5050 mAh battery with 10W fast charging.
