Nokia has introduced the company’s most affordable 5G smartphone to date. Here’s what you need to know about the Nokia G50 5G.
We’ve been hearing about the Nokia G50 for a long time, but we had to wait nearly till the very last day of September to see the official unveiling of the phone, which is Nokia’s most cost-effective 5G device.
However, 5G is not the only thing that makes this model special. The software was designed particularly for that hardware, with a big battery and access to Android updates for two years, as well as three years of security upgrades.

The Nokia G50 maintains an aesthetic that follows the lines of other models recently launched by the company, such as the Nokia X10.
It has a 6.82-inch diagonal screen with HD+ resolution and a notch in the shape of a drop at the top, which houses the 8MP front camera.
The rear is available in two colors: blue and bronze. A 48MP sensor, next to which we find a 5MP camera with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP camera for portraits, sits behind the triple rear camera.
Its processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G, one of the first Qualcomm models aimed at the mid-range with an integrated 5G modem. It is accompanied by 4GB of RAM and a storage of 64 or 128GB, which can be expanded by microSD up to 512GB.
Its battery has a 5,000 mAh capacity, which ensures up to two days of autonomy. When it comes to the charger, the device supports charging up to 18W.

Its price starts at $303 for the model with 64GB of storage and increases to $327 for the variant with double the internal storage, at the exchange rate. The expected release date is 6th October 2021.
