Nokia G50 unveiled: mid-range smartphone with 5G and 48MP camera

HDM Global announced the new Nokia G50 5G smartphone earlier than we expected. Its premiere took place last Wednesday, September 22.

The new Nokia G50 5G is built on an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 platform with an integrated 5G modem. The company chips are from 4 to 6 GB of RAM and from 64 to 128 GB of internal memory, expandable using a microSD memory card. The smartphone comes with Android 11 mobile operating system on board and can expect two years of OS updates and 3 years of monthly security updates.

Almost the entire front panel of the new Nokia smartphone is occupied by a large 6.82-inch LCD-display with HD resolution, 70 percent coverage of the NTSC color space and a standard brightness of 450 nits. There is a small U-shaped notch at the top of the screen that hides an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. Three more cameras are installed at the rear — a 48MP main camera, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor for portraits. The system is supplemented with LED flash.

The Nokia G50 5G has a 5000mAh battery. It supports 18W fast charging technology. The manufacturer claims that the battery will last for two days of battery life. The novelty also received a classic 3.5 mm audio jack for headphones, an FM radio receiver, a fingerprint scanner built into the power button, a separate button for the Google Assistant voice assistant and support, in addition to 5G, for wireless communications such as GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6 and NFC for contactless payments.

Sales of Nokia G50 in the European market will start next month. It will be offered to customers starting at 270 euros for a base configuration with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.
