Alongside the 5G-enabled X-series, HMD also unveiled four entry-level Nokia phones – two G phones with full Android 11 and two C phones with Android 11 Go Edition. It’s important to note that the G-series will receive OS updates for two years. The G-series consists of Nokia G10 and Nokia G20.
The Nokia G20 is the clear favorite if you care about the camera. It has a 48MP main module, combined with a 5MP ultrawide angle camera, plus an 8MP selfie camera (also on the back: 2MP macro and 2MP depth units). Save for the ZEISS optics, this is the exact same setup as the pricier X10 phone.
The G20 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset (8x A53 @ 2.3 GHz, GE8320 @ 680 MHz). It always comes with 4 GB of RAM, storage is 64 or 128 GB. It is also built around a 6.5” LCD with 720p+ resolution (20:9).
The Nokia G20 is also fueled by a 5,050mAh battery and features 3.5mm audio jack, side fingerprint scanner, Google Assistant button(dedicated).
It runs a stock Android 11 OS but note that the G-series gets 2 years of OS updates, coupled with 3 years of monthly security patches.
