- Nokia G10 will be another budget smartphone from HMD Global.
- HMD may bring a big display and 48MP quad cameras on the Nokia G10.
- The Nokia G10 is said to cost Rs 11,999 in India and launch next month.
Nokia G10 is emerging as what could be the next smartphone from HMD Global. It has been spotted on multiple platforms, confirming the next Nokia phone will follow a different naming system. HMD was recently rumoured to be ditching the dot convention for Nokia smartphones and Nokia G10 could be the first of many such phones to come. In a massive spill, nearly all the specifications, the launch date, India price, and looks of the Nokia G10 have been leaked.
HMD Global's low-end and mid-end portfolio is not as packed to the gills as its rivals. And while the company is now focussing on inundating the market with more options, it is also making a big change for Nokia phones. And that change may perhaps turn out to be inconsequential for HMD. It is changing the way Nokia phones are named. So, with Nokia G10, HMD will kick off a new line of phones that do not have the dot pattern, as in Nokia 2.4, Nokia 3.4, among others.
Nokia G10 specifications
The Nokia G10 will come with an octa-core processor (unnamed) coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, a new Nokiapoweruser report said. There is going to be 32GB or 64GB of internal storage on the Nokia G10, as well. The phone will run Android 10 software, which is strange because Android 11 was rolled out last year. The phone has support for a microSD card of up to 512GB. Nokia G10 will have a 6.38-inch display with HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone will have a 4000mAh battery with 10W charging via a USB-C port.
For the cameras, the Nokia G10 will have a combination of 48MP main, 2MP depth, 5MP ultrawide, and 2MP macro sensors. And for selfies, the Nokia G10 will have a 16MP camera. The phone will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and support for Qualcomm aptX Adaptive and FM radio. The phone will support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC among other connectivity options. The Nokia G10 will also have a Google Assistant button. It will measure 160.97x75.99x8.7 mm and weigh 180 grams.
Nokia G10 price, launch date
According to the report, the Nokia G10 will cost around Rs 11,999 for the base model with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage in India. In Europe, however, the Nokia G10 is said to be priced at EUR 139 (roughly Rs 12,000) for the base variant. The launch may take place on April 8, which is when HMD Global has scheduled its next event. It is also believed that HMD may launch two more phones at the event and these phones are rumoured to be known as Nokia X10 and Nokia X20. These two phones may be the company's first affordable 5G phones.
