Nokia was known for making great phones but the same cannot be said now. Though, the company is doing its best to keep the business afloat. As a matter of fact, there has been significant growth in recent years, thanks to its “Make premium looking cheap phones” strategy.

According to a new report, Nokia Mobile will be announcing many Nokia X and G series 5G smartphones powered by Snapdragon 480 Plus processor this year.
Nokiapoweruser, citing sources, has reported that Nokia Mobile is set to launch new Nokia X and G series 5G smartphones in the second half of this year. Many of these smartphones are believed to feature the Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G processor under the hood.
The moniker of the upcoming X-series smartphones is yet to be known. However, the smartphones may carry support for a 120 Hz refresh rate. Even the premium G-series smartphones could offer a 120 Hz display, says the report.
It is expected that the forthcoming series of smartphones may include the Nokia XR21, Nokia X21, and Nokia X11.
As mentioned above, the handsets will likely be powered by a Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G processor which is an upgrade of the Snapdragon 480 launched in 2021.
