Similar to the Nokia smartphones of current times, the Nokia G50 5G is essentially a budget Android smartphone with low end features. The phone is based on the Snapdragon 480 platform, which is an entry-level 5G compatible chipset from Qualcomm.
There will be a stock and clean build of Android 11 available out of the box. There’s 64GB of storage onboard but it is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card.
The display measures 6.8-inches and uses an IPS LCD panel. However, the resolution is limited to HD+ and it can only go up to 450 nits of brightness. As for the cameras, the G50 houses a triple camera setup, which includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor along with a 5-megapixel ultra-wide shooter. There’s also a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Selfies and video calls are handled by an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
All of this is kept alive by a 5000mAh battery and Nokia provides an 18W fast charger in the box. The G50 has a USB-C port for charging and data transfers.
