Nokia Budget X, G, and C Series
While there is no Nokia 10, the company has just unveiled six new affordable phones that are built to deliver premium experiences at a fraction of the cost of their flagship competitors.
Unlike previous Nokia smartphones, HMD Global, the brand’s parent company, has repositioned the brand’s range to include three new series: Nokia X, Nokia G, and Nokia C.
The Nokia X10, Nokia X20, Nokia G10, Nokia G20, Nokia C10, and Nokia C20 are the six new phones. The Nokia X20 has the best specs, while the Nokia C10 has the cheapest.
Nokia X20 and Nokia X10
The Nokia X20 and Nokia X10 aren’t the brand’s flagship phones (that honour goes to the Nokia 9 PureView), but they are the most high-end of the company’s recent handsets.
Both the Nokia X20 and Nokia X10 have a 6.67-inch Full HD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processors, 5G connectivity, and a 4,470mAh battery.
The Nokia X20 also has a 64-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. A 32MP front-facing camera will be used for selfies, and you can choose between a model with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Nokia X10 has a 48MP main camera, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro. The front-facing 8MP camera is then used to take selfies.
You can choose from three different configurations: 6GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB of storage, or 4GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
The Nokia X20 is available in Nordic Blue or Midnight Sun (a golden shade), while the Nokia X10 is available in Forest (a green shade) or Snow (a white variant).
The Nokia X20 will be available in the UK in May, although there is no set date for when it will be available, with the Nokia X10 following in June. The Nokia X20 will cost £299.99 (approximately $400, AU$550), while the Nokia X10 will cost £249.99 (approximately $350, AU$450).
HMD Global has yet to confirm if any of these new handsets will be available in the United States, though we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Nokia G20 and Nokia G10
If you choose the Nokia G20 or Nokia G10, don’t expect high-end specifications, but these smartphones seem to be well-built for the price tag.
Both phones have a 6.5-inch HD-resolution display and a 5,500mAh battery, but that’s where the similarities end.
The Nokia G20 has a Mediatek G35 2.3GHz processor with 4GB of RAM, while the Nokia G10 has a Mediatek G20 2.0GHz processor with 3GB or 4GB of RAM.
The G20 has 64GB or 128GB of storage options, while the G10 has 32GB or 64GB of storage options.
The Nokia G20 has a 48MP main camera with a 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth shooter (which sounds eerily similar to the Nokia X10), as well as an 8MP selfie camera.
The phone comes in two colours: Night, which is a dark blue, and Glacier, which is a light blue.
The Nokia G10 replaces the rear-facing camera with a 13MP main camera, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor, as well as an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. The colour choices are the same Night dark blue as the G20 or a purple-like Dusk colour.
The Nokia G10 will be available in the UK by the end of April for £109.99 (roughly $150, AU$200). The Nokia G20 will be released in May for £129.99 (approximately $180, AU$230).
Nokia C20 and Nokia C10
The Nokia C20 features a 6.5-inch display with HD resolution, a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB or 2GB of RAM, and a primary 5MP sensor. It will cost £79 (roughly $110, AU$140) in the UK and will be released in June.
The Nokia C10 features a similar-sized monitor with HD resolution, a 1.3GHz processor, and 1GB or 2GB of RAM. HMD Global has no plans to bring this phone to the United Kingdom, and we haven’t heard when it will be published.
Since all six of these smartphones share certain features, they will all run Android 11 out of the box. It will also come with the company’s three-year software upgrade guarantee.
If you need more room, each handset also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and can accept microSD cards up to 512GB.
