Nokia G20 comes to the US with a big battery and a low price


One of the most important models in Nokia’s reworked phone lineup is headed to the US. HMD Global’s Nokia brand has revealed that the G20 will be available on June 28 at a price of $199. The available colors are in “night” and “glacier” shades now.

The hook, as in other countries, is the combination of that low price with a huge battery. The Nokia G20 includes a 5,050mAh power pack that reportedly delivers three days of battery life. We afraid if real-world performance sometimes falls short, but we hope that it might get through a weekend without a recharge.

The performance is modest, although that might contribute to the longevity. You’ll have to make do with a 6.5-inch 720p LCD, a MediaTek Helio G35 chip and 4GB of RAM. The version coming to the US has both 128GB of expandable storage and dual SIM support, though, so you won’t be hurting for space or an extra phone line.

A 48MP main camera, 5MP ultra-wide cam, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor provide photography you’d largely expect in this category. A front 8MP camera provides selfies on the Nokia G20.

Nokia is also promising two years of Android feature updates for the G20 as well as three years of security updates. It seems strong for a device in this price class and important if you want current software. The Nokia G20 may be a solid value for the money.
