The Finnish provider HMD Global has launched six new Android smartphones from Nokia after a long period of rest. The devices are all in the lower price segment and have a completely new naming scheme.
With the Nokia C10 and C20, HMD is introducing two low-end models, the Nokia G10 and G20, two mid-range devices, and the Nokia X10 and X20, two premium mid-range smartphones. The previous practice of assigning a type of version number to the devices is a thing of the past.

At prices from 319 and 399 euros respectively, the Nokia X10 and X20 are two new devices that are more in the upper-middle class, each with a 6.67 inch LCD with 2400×1080 pixels and a centrally positioned “punch hole” for the front camera to have.
The basis in each case is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480, which has eight computing cores of up to 2.0 gigahertz and an integrated 5G modem.
The working memory of the X20 is generously dimensioned with eight gigabytes, while the X10 has to make do with four GB. The internal flash memory is 128 gigabytes each and can be expanded using a microSD card slot.
Nokia smartphones with Android differences are limited
As the design of the two Nokia smartphones in the new X series, the batteries are also identical: 4470mAh capacity and a 10-watt power adapter are on offer.
The cameras make the differences between the two smartphones clear: while the Nokia X20 with 64 megapixels has a very high-resolution main camera, the X10 “only” has a 48-megapixel main sensor.

The three other cameras with five megapixels (ultra wide-angle) and two megapixels each for macro shots and depth effects are again identical.
When it comes to the front camera, the X20 trumps again with 32 megapixels. The X10, on the other hand, has to make do with only eight megapixels.
The Nokia G10 and G20 are also available with very similar features. The devices each have a 6.51 inch LCD with 1600×720 pixels and are based on the MediaTek Helio G25, which has a maximum of LTE connectivity.
The main memory is three gigabytes in size and the internal flash memory of 32 GB is not particularly generous. The batteries are also identical with 5050mAh each.
The cameras make the difference again: the Nokia G20 has the main sensor with 48 megapixels and an ultra-wide-angle camera with five megapixels.
The Nokia G10 does without the additional wide-angle camera and has a 13-megapixel sensor built into the main camera. In addition, both models feature the largely pointless 2-megapixel cameras for depth effects and macro shots. The front camera with the 8-megapixel sensor is again identical.
HMD wants to charge 139 euros for the Nokia G10, while the Nokia G20 costs 169 euros. In the Nokia C10 and Nokia C20, HMD wants to use a 6.5-inch LCD that offers HD + resolution.
The devices are located at the very bottom of the market and, like the other models, should come onto the market from June. They run with Android Go and accordingly offer very simple features, about which HMD has so far hardly given any details.
