HMD’s latest Nokia phone to hit the US is the Nokia G20. That might sound like an international meeting of world smartphone leaders, but it’s an actual device arriving in the US on July 1 for just $199. For this low price point, the phone doesn’t look bad.
The specs include a 6.5-inch, 1600×720 LCD; a Mediatek G35 SoC; 4GB of RAM; 64GB of storage; and a 5050 mAh battery. HMD says a full charge will provide “three-day battery life.” There’s a USB-C port for 10 W charging, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a side fingerprint reader, a microSD slot, NFC, Wi-Fi up to 802.11n, and a hardware Google Assistant button, along with the usual power and volume buttons.
It’s notable when an Android phone launches in the US without a Qualcomm processor. The G20 gets the Mediatek G35 SoC, a 12 nm chip with eight ARM Cortex A53 cores—four at 2.3 GHz and four at 1.8 GHz. An equivalent Qualcomm SoC would be something like the Snapdragon 439.
