HMD Global, the owner of Nokia brand, will release a number of new smartphones next month, including the Nokia G10, Nokia X10 and Nokia X20. Judging by recent leaks, it is possible that the Nokia G10 will be the cheapest of all three. It will be available in two colour options, purple and blue. Although it doesn’t have exceptional internal hardware, the device should be appealing for users who are looking for better photography options. The primary camera on the back will have 48MP resolution, supported by 5MP ultrawide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro cameras. There will also be a LED flash for improved low-light performance. In the front, there will be a 16MP camera. There’s no information about the chipset, but like many smartphone models, it will likely an octa-core system. There will be two variants of G10, 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage. There is also microSD slot to expand storage options. The G10 will have 6.4-inch display with HD+ resolution. The 4,000 mAh battery will have 10W charging.
Nokia G10 will have Android 11 operating system and it includes dual SIM slots. As a budget-friendly device, the Nokia G10 should be compatible with any GSM network band in the United States and many other countries. Another smartphone model is Nokia X20 will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 480G chipset, 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM. There will be two colour options of the device, sand and blue. It will be a mid-range device, priced at 349 Euro. The X10 will also have 5G data connectivity with 32GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM. It is slightly cheaper at 300 Euro. There will be colour options of Nokia X10, green and white. It is likely that the Nokia X10 will also have Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G chipset. At the moment, HMD Global is also working on the Nokia 8.3 5G. It will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G chipset, 6.5-inch display with 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+ resolution, 108MP primary shooter in a penta-camera configuration on the back and 5,000mAh battery.
The Nokia 8.3 5G will have power button with built-in fingerprint sensor to ensure a more intuitive and fluid way to unlock the device. There will be a dedicated button for Google Assistant to improve usability. The brand is now part of the Android One program that guarantees stable Android updates. It is quite unfortunate that HMD Global still doesn’t have plan to release high-end devices with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8xx chipset. The company has strategy to release various volume-driving devices from the entry level and mid-range categories. Flagship devices are a low-volume affair and HMD Global wants seeks to boost sales. The company is still relying on the public awareness of Nokia brand. However, if consumers continue to associate Nokia with less capable devices, this may not be a good thing in the long run. We would need to see whether HMD Global still has some more tricks up its sleeve. We will need to see on April 8 about the exact specifications of these devices.
