Nokia Unveils 6 New Smartphones

Nokia HMD Global new smartphones

HMD Global, the company behind new Nokia-branded phones, has revamped its phone portfolio and unveiled six new Nokia-branded smartphones that will cover three price tiers. As announced on an event live-streamed on Nokia’s website yesterday, the newest unveilings are aimed at making Nokia’s smartphones more affordable and long-lasting.

Instead of going with their traditional naming scheme where phone names are followed by double digits separated by a digit, we have a plain Nokia C, Nokia G, and Nokia X series.

Here is the full range of the smartphones that were launched with their specifications.

Nokia X10 and Nokia X20

It is important to note that these top of the range smartphones won’t be the company’s flagship devices as you’d expect, since the Nokia 9 PureView still holds that title. Both of these devices will come with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ punch-hole display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset, 5G connectivity, and a 4,470mAh battery.

In its quad set-up, the Nokia X10 will have a 48MP main camera with a 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro. The front-facing camera will afford you 8MP shots. You get three variants for storage here; 6GB RAM/64GB storage, 6GB RAM/128 GB storage, and 4RAM/128GB storage configurations.

The Nokia X20 on the other hand is fitted with a 64MP main camera with a 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP depth sensor and maintains a 2MP macro camera as seen in the X10’s quad set-up. There is also a 32MP camera for the selfie camera.

There is an all-new Dual-Sight feature that will activate two cameras simultaneously so you can capture multiple angles. This phone will offer 6GB RAM/128GB storage and 8GB RAM/128GB stoarage.

Pricing: The Nokia X20 will be available in select markets globally starting May in Midnight Sun and Nordic Blue colour at KES. 44,400.
The Nokia X10 will be available in select markets globally starting June in Forest and Snow colour options at KES. 39,400.

Nokia G10 and G20

It looks like high-end specs have been cut down on these two as they are meant to cater to a mid-level market. Both of the phones on the G series have a 6.5-inch display with an HD resolution and a 5,500mAh battery that has been said to have three-day battery life.

Nokia G10 has a triple camera set-up at the back; a 13MP main shooter, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. These are all alongside an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. This phone is powered by a Mediatek G20 chipset with 3GB/4BG of RAM. Storage options here are 32GB/64GB.

Nokia G20 has a stunning 48MP Main camera on its quad set-up at the back with a 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro shooter, and 2MP depth shooter. The selfie camera is also 8MP like in the Nokia G10 counterpart. The Mediatek G35 chipset in this phone gives a 4GB RAM capacity while your storage options will be either 64GB or 128GB.

Pricing: The Nokia G20 will be available in select markets globally starting May in Night and Glacier colour options at KES. 20,200.
The Nokia G10 will be available in select markets globally starting April in Night and Dusk colour options at KES. 17,700

Nokia C10 and C20

The C series is an interesting tier since the phones have been fitted with a couple of high-quality specs at a budget level. The phones have a wide 6.5″ HD+ display with Android 11™ (Go edition) in the software.

Each of the devices supports expandable storage cards up to 512GB as well as the now rarely seen 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Nokia C10 comes in 1GB RAM/16GB storage, 1GB RAM/32GB storage and 2GB RAM/16GB storage configurations.
The Nokia C20 however comes in only 1GB RAM/16GB storage, 2GB RAM/32GB storage configurations.

Pricing: The Nokia C20 will be available in select markets globally starting April in Sand and Dark Blue colour options at KES. 11,300.
The Nokia C10 will be available in select markets globally starting June in Light Purple and Grey colour options at KES 9,550.
