Nokia’s affordable phones come with a new nomenclature, and the Finnish manufacturer focuses on sustainability, longevity and many upgrades.
Since Finnish HMD Global took over Nokia’s phone brand, they have achieved some success, but it is clear that they have not yet been able to compete with truly big companies. According to news reports, the coronavirus pandemic has also caused a lot of problems for companies, so the high-end phones they have long promised are so late that it is outdated, but new devices are now in the middle. To and from get out of class.
The first and most important news is that the term has also been changed so that the phone can be identified more easily.
In recent years, HMD has released its mobile phones with names similar to Nokia 5.4 or just Nokia 7.2, which makes sense for those who pay close attention to the new version, but after a while, it is relatively easy to get confused. Probably seeing this, the recently released version is somewhat more memorable:
- Nokia X20 and X10 belong to the middle class.
- At the bottom of the mid-range products are the Nokia G20 and G10.
- At the bottom are Nokia C20 and C10, but they haven’t come to Hungary, so we don’t even deal with them.
It should be pointed out in advance that in the categories that Nokia hopes to compete by introducing the above-mentioned innovations, competitors are very strong, especially those from China. Oppo or Xiaomi (Redmi) have recently launched such incredible value-added devices that Nokia may feel that they cannot compete on the merits, so they focus on other areas:
They hope that the mobile phone can be used for a long time, so it is not necessary to discard it prematurely, thereby reducing the generation of electronic waste, and of course, it can also protect the customer’s wallet.
Therefore, both Nokia X20 and X10 will receive three years of Android software updates and three years of regular security updates. In addition, the warranty period has been extended to 3 years, and the equipment comes with an environmentally friendly, compostable box.
Similarly, in order to reduce the generation of electronic waste, mobile phones no longer include charging heads and earphones, although we write more information at the expense of cost savings.
Either way, the two phones are very similar: a 6.67-inch FullHD+ display, a mid-range but energy-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 CPU (already supporting 5G) and a 4470 mAh battery are common.
Based on these, Nokia hopes that the X20 and X10 can provide up to two days of uptime.
The main difference is the camera. The more expensive X20’s main camera is 64 megapixels, while the X10’s main camera is 48 megapixels, but the other three auxiliary cameras are the same: there is a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel one. Depth sensor and a 2 pixel. -Megapixel macro lens. With the help of the lens again, the famous Zeiss helped the Finns. The front camera is 32 megapixels on the more expensive models and is expected to perform well in poor lighting conditions compared to the 8 megapixels on the cheaper version.
- The Nokia X20 will be available in Hungary in June in the form of “Aurora” with a 6/128GB version and a suggested retail price of HUF 139,990.
- The Nokia X10 will be launched in Hungary in June in the “Forest Green”, 4/128GB version, with a suggested retail price of HUF 119,990.
Low price and long service life
The prices of G20 and G10 have been positioned at higher prices and “enough daily use” quality, so the size of the 6.5-inch display is not small, but you cannot have high-definition HD resolution today. The eight-core MediaTek G35 processor can easily meet the general needs, because the 4 GB memory of the G20 is still on the edge of enough, but the G10 must have reached 3 GB, we no longer know with a calm mind.
In return, these phones are equipped with an astonishing 5050 mAh battery, which Nokia says can be used for up to 3 days.
Here, the manufacturer only guarantees to use the latest version of Android within two years (which is still not a bad thing), but the security update will last for three years.
Here, the most important difference can also be seen in the camera. There are four lenses on the back of the G20: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, while the G10 has a moderate The main camera of 13 megapixels, the macro of 2 megapixels. The front camera is unified to 8 megapixels.
- The Nokia G20 will be launched in Hungary in May in the color of “Midnight Sky”, with a 4/64GB version, and a suggested retail price of forint 69,990.
- The Nokia G10 will be launched in Hungary in May, the color is “Midnight Sky”, the version is 3 / 32GB, and the suggested retail price is HUF 54,990.
