HMD Global has launched its latest in its lineup of affordable Android smartphones in its G-series family, with 5G support and a 5000mAh battery. Dubbed the Nokia G50, it is designed to be future proof in terms of 5G connectivity as well as supporting the Android One program.
With these two, users can enjoy access to the faster network speeds when they are in a 5G area, while Android One ensures they get regular security and software updates for two years.
The G50 comes with a large 6.82-inch LCD display on the front with a small v-shaped notch cutout at the top, plus a physical fingerprint scanner that’s built into the power button on the right.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 480 processor, which ships alongside either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage. This is expandable using the microSD card tray.
It features a triple camera system on the back, housed in a classic Nokia-esque circular protrusion containing a 48-megapixel primary, 8-megapixel ultrawide and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
