HMD Global has launched the latest of Nokia’s affordable 5G phones in its G-series, including the Nokia G50. The new Nokia G50, which costs less than £200 in the UK, features a 5000mAh battery, that can last two days on a single charge. 

Future-proofed 5G phone 

The new Nokia G50 is being hailed by HMD Global as a ‘future-proofed smartphone’ and that’s partly to do with the fact it’ll get better once connected to 5G, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G Mobile platform, which is designed to optimise future 5G technology. The other part of the ‘future-proofed’ element is the Android One program, which ensures users get regular security and software updates for two years. 

For a budget 5G phone, which will cost £199 or less, the massive battery and Snapdragon 480 processor are excellent specifications, but it doesn’t stop there. The Nokia G50 features a large 6.82-inch LCD display on the front and a fingerprint scanner built into the power button. Practical and affordable, the G50 also boasts Android 11 and 3.5mm headphone port.

There’s also a watermarking feature that allows users to mark their images with a few words, or a logo. 

The Nokia G50 is available in the UK now, coming in Ocean Blue and Midnight Sun colours. It will cost £199 for the 4GB/64GB variant but will also be available with 128GB and storage can be expanded further with the microSD card tray.
