HMD Global has today unveiled a 4G smartphone with a key focus on repairability and sustainability called Nokia G22. Let’s checkout what it offers as per specs and pricings.

Nokia G22 launched with focus on repairability and sustainability

The Nokia G22 is for the smartphone owner that wants to hold onto his phone for the longest possible time. According to market research numbers the leading cause for people to change their phone is that it broke and that in most cases it was due to a broken display or a degraded battery, so HMD focused on making those as easy as to replace as possible.

A battery replacement of the Nokia G22 takes around 5 minutes and all the tools you need as the SIM ejector tool, a guitar pick and a screwdriver. Changing the display takes about 20 minutes, with a few extra tools.

HMD partnered with iFixit to provide the tools, guide, and parts for you to replace the display, charging port or battery on the Nokia G22. Obviously, you can also take the G22 over to an authorized service center to do those repairs.

Nokia drastically reduced the steps needed to repair the G22 by removing the need to heat the back cover to remove it, and the need of alcohol to remove the battery.

The Nokia G22 has a back cover that uses 100% recycled plastic, while its packaging uses fully certified FSC Mix material.

As for the actual specs, the G22 has a 6.52-inch HD+ 90Hz display with Gorilla Glass 3. The front 8MP camera can perform face unlock even with a mask, and there’s a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The Nokia G22 is powered by a Unisoc T606 chipset with 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage. The Nokia G22 phone ships with Android 12, and HMD promises 2 OS upgrades and 3 years of security updates, so it should get to Android 14.

On the back, there’s a triple camera system with a 50MP main camera, a 2MP macro unit, and a 2MP depth sensor.
