HMD Global has announced a new wave of Nokia phones divided into three different new series – here is all you need to know about the Nokia C20, Nokia X20 and more.
Nokia C10 and Nokia C20
Sitting under Nokia’s new line-up is the very affordable C10, a basic Android 11 Go device with 1GB or 2GB of RAM, a quad-core chipset, and up to 64GB of internal storage.
There is a 5MP camera on both the front and back, a 6.5-inch 720p display and a removable 3000mAh battery that is charged via micro USB. You don’t see a removable battery on many phones these days. It also has a headphone jack and 4G network support.
Nokia is also promising a two-year security update, which is always good to see on phones at this price.
The Nokia C20 is basically similar to the C10 above, although it adds a bit more power to the Snapdragon octa-core chipset.
Nokia C20 Price: € 89 / £ 79
Price of Nokia C10: € 75 / £ NA
Nokia G10 and Nokia G20
Nokia is actually offering its batteries as battery champs, thanks to the use of a 5050mAh battery that both the G10 and G20 can claim for up to three days.
This is a bold claim, but given that the giant cell will only get the power of a 6.5-inch 720p display, we’ll be surprised if we get the handset to review.
The G20 seems to win it when it comes to the cameras, at least in terms of specs. The 5MP ultra wide is the main 48MP rear camera with 2MP macro and 2MP depth. For the G10 you get 13MP main with 2MP depth and another 2MP macro. Both phones have an 8MP front camera for selfie and the G20 has an advantage over Ojio Audio. You will also find NFC on G20 only.
The G20 has a faster MediaTek G35 chipset in the G20 instead of the G25, and it gives you 4GB of RAM as standard. With the G10 you can choose between 3 GB or 4 GB.
The rest of the features are very high. Both have a 6.5-inch 720p display, use USB-C for charging, and run a more traditional version of Android 11 with a two-year update.
Nokia G20 Price: € 159 / £ 129.99
Nokia G10 Price: € 139 / £ 109.99
Sitting at the top of Nokia’s new budget line is the X Series, which currently has two devices.
The X10 is more affordable for both, though it still packs 5G thanks to the Snapdragon 480 chipset. You also get a 48MP main camera on the back with Zeiss branding and a three-year Android update.
What exactly is this rush of upgrades that sets the Nokia X10 and X20 apart from other great cheap phones and even many of the best mid-range phones. HMD Global wants you to keep this phone for an extended period of time and expects that by doing so you will get a lot of support.
On the front, you get a 6.67-inch 1080p display and a 4470mAh battery inside which is charged via USB-C. You don’t get a charger in the box with the X10 or X20, although a 100% compostable case is included to make up for that discount.
Price: € 309 / £ 249
The Nokia X20 is, again, similar to the X10. It lacks the same overall look, the same 6.67-inch 1080p display, the same 4470mAh battery, and an included charger.
However, it offers more RAM (up to 8GB) and a more capable 32MP selfie camera. The X10 has an 8MP unit.
It comes in a couple of different color options, with bronze standing out in particular.
At £ 299, the X20 is entering a difficult part of the market. Missing things like the 90Hz or 120Hz display does not mean that it feels like something modern like the Redmi Note 10 Pro, even if that phone is missed out on the 5G.
