Nokia announced the launch of up to six new smartphones earlier today in a live streaming press event. The new smartphones announced by the company all belong to the company’s budget segment and span three device classes. X series, G series and C series.
- The X-series models include the Nokia X20 and Nokia X10
- The G series models are the Nokia G10 and Nokia G20
- The new models in the C series include the Nokia C10 and Nokia C2
Let’s take a closer look at each of these phones.
Nokia X10 and X20
The Nokia X10 and X20 are entry-level phones that both come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset, which also happens to be 5G compatible. Both devices that are part of the Android One program will also receive security updates for three years. Nokia has also issued a 3 year warranty for these devices.
The more expensive of the two models, the Nokia X20 has a 32-megapixel front camera and a 64-megapixel main camera as part of a quad camera array with a 5-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and two 2-megapixel depth and macro sensors
Both phones have a 6.67-inch FHD + LCD display. The devices are also contained in a 4470 mAh battery. The X10 falls behind on the front of the camera and comes with a 48MP sensor and has less RAM (4 GB instead of 8 GB).
The Nokia X20 costs 399 euros, while the Nokia X10 sells for 319 euros. While you can buy the X20 from May, the X10 will hit the market a month later, in June 2021
Nokia G10 and G20
The Nokia G10 and G20 are also somewhat similar. Both phones have a 6.51-inch HD + display, a 5020 mAh battery and are powered by the MediaTek Helio G25 SoC. This processor isn’t 5G capable and you shouldn’t expect too much performance from the entry-level processor either.
The G-series is located below the X-series, which is clear from the camera specs. The G20 has a quad camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary camera, while the N10 gets by with a 13-megapixel sensor.
Thanks to the Android One program, both phones are said to be updated for two years. Both phones cost less than 200 euros. While the G20 will be available from May for 169 euros, the G10 will be available for 130 euros at the end of this month.
Nokia C10 and C20
The company also unveiled two new C-Series models that are in the outermost entry-level segment. The devices have basic SoCs and offer 1 / 2GB RAM and a maximum of 32GB internal storage. The Nokia C20 has a 6.5-inch HD + display. So far we only know that the Nokia C20 will be released in June. We will update this article with more details as soon as we receive them.
Conclusion and a short comment
In summary, one can almost say that Nokia today introduced three smartphones, each with a slightly optimized Pro version. However, the X series in particular will have a hard time asserting itself in the smartphone segment under $ 300 due to strong competition from companies such as Realme or Xiaomi.
