After making a play with Android smartphones at all points of the price spectrum, Nokia Mobile pre-announced a slew of low-cost phones for the 2021 summer season. We now know when U.S. customers can expect to buy one of them and for how much.
The Nokia G20 is being pitched as an endurance master with a 5,000+ mAh battery and highly-efficient components to last 2 or even 3 days off the charger. Other features include a capacitive fingerprint sensor to the side of the device, a dedicated Google Assistant button, four rear cameras, and an IPX2 rating making it resistant to heavy rainfall, but not immersion. Don't expect 5G on this device, either.
