After revamping its budget and mid-range smartphone lineups in Europe, today HMD Global has announced plans to release one of its newest and best budget phones in the US as soon as this week.
Nokia G10: big battery and good software support for $149
The Nokia G10 will be available to US customers for $149 starting Thursday, May 26, in two colors — Dusk and Night. The smartphone will be sold through Nokia.com at launch and is “coming soon” to major national retailers. Amazon, for example, has the smartphone listed with a June 14 release date. For reference, the Nokia G10 features a 6.5-inch notched display that’s coupled with a massive 5,050mAh battery and a rear triple-camera setup. The latter uses a 13-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel macro shooter, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Three years of monthly security updates are guaranteed as well. And you don’t have to worry about where your smartphone data is stored — HMD Global is highlighting the fact that everything will be stored at a data center in Finland.
The Nokia 1.4 is available as an even cheaper option
If the Nokia G10 is a little bit on the pricey side for you, perhaps the Nokia 1.4 could be of interest. Starting today, the smartphone is available in Charcoal on Amazon for $119. It’ll be sold at Target soon.
The Nokia 1.4 also offers a 6.5-inch display, the main differences compared to the Nokia G10 being that it uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 215 chipset and offers 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB. The battery is also smaller at 4,000mAh and the rear includes a dual-camera setup (8-megapixel main + 2-megapixel macro).
