Nokia G100 and G400: a launch is approaching

Two new affordable phones from Nokia could be coming soon, the G100 and the G400.

Unlike most other manufacturers, HMD Global was not very active in the first half of 2022. At the CES in Las Vegas last January, the company announced a series of new smartphones. These are entry-level models only, including the Nokia G400 and G100. Since then they have not yet seen the light of day.

Their release might be soon as it is known that the user manuals were discovered by Nokiapoweruser site. Some features were unveiled during the presentation of this new series, but the full technical sheet is partially yet to be discovered, especially for the Nokia G100.

Nokia G400: 5G for less than 250 euros

It appears in the manual in three variants whose model numbers would be TA-1448, TA-1476 and N1530DL.

In any case, Nokia had confirmed during CES 2022 that its G400 will come with a 6.6-inch screen with a teardrop-shaped notch to house the selfie camera, details of which are still unknown. The panel, likely LCD, will benefit from a 120Hz refresh rate.

The photo part also corresponds to an entry-level smartphone with a main sensor of 48 Mpx, an ultra wide angle of 5 Mpx and a macro of 2 Mpx.

The Nokia G400 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chip, thus offering 5G connectivity. Many manufacturers are increasingly trying to democratize this network standard and include it in their cheapest models. The SoC should also be reinforced by 6 GB of RAM. Storage would be pretty standard at 128GB internally.

In terms of autonomy, Nokia has not revealed anything for its G400. With entry-level smartphones, however, this is usually an essential feature. It would therefore not be surprising to discover a 5000 mAh battery.

It will soon be available on the market at a price equivalent to 230 euros.

Nokia G100: autonomy above all

It will be particularly accessible as Nokia announced during CES that it will be marketed at a price of $149, or around €141. The technical sheet will therefore be quite simple, with a 6.5-inch LCD screen and a standard refresh rate of 60Hz.

In terms of photography, it will integrate a triple sensor without its composition having yet been determined. It might be slightly devalued compared to the G400.

Unlike the latter, 5G will not be relevant. The Nokia G100 is indeed powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chip, limited to 4G.

Finally, its autonomy should be comfortable with the support of a large 5000mAh battery.

Nokia should be unveiling its newcomers very soon, strengthening its presence in this rich segment of affordable smartphones.
