And Nokia G50 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Nokia got the name Nokia G50 and was announced in September 2021. This model is released in the series of smartphones Nokia G.

Smartphone Nokia G50 works out of the box under the operating system Android version 11. Not every android smartphone boasts that it can be updated to a newer version, but in our case the model Nokia G50 updated to Android version 12 (look in the catalog all smartphones on Android 12).

In addition the Nokia G50 — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. And this model also supports 5G networks, which means that the speed of receiving data with this smartphone can reach up to 100 Mb/s. Soon, each smartphone will work in the networks of the fifth-generation (5G). Therefore, in our catalog on a separate page, you will find all 5G smartphones from popular manufacturers of Android devices.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Nokia G50 thickness 8.9 mm is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.82″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Nokia G50. The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 8 MP Wide. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Nokia G50. The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 480 5G (8 nm). RAM is built-in 4 GB and there is a version of 6 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 64 GB and plus another option for 128 GB. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSDXC.

Price for Nokia G50: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Nokia G50 got into our price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” and began to be sold in October 2021 at a price of $270. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Nokia G50 is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and the coolest main camera for today, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here deserves special attention, because it received a very powerful with increased capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
