HMD-owned Nokia showed off a bunch of new phones at CES 2022, and they’re all relatively affordable. The leader of the pack is the $239 Nokia G400, which comes with 5G connectivity and a 120Hz display, which is rare at this price.
Starting with the $239 G400, the company announced a triple rear camera system with a 48-megapixel main shooter, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. This is a solid camera system for a phone at this price. It has a 6.6-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is extremely rare for a phone under $250. It comes with a respectable 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This phone is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2022.
Nokia is soon offering even cheaper phones, including the $149 G100. It has a 6.5-inch display with no lower refresh rate, a large 5,000mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor. Its specs are modest, but for under $150 you get a pretty solid phone. This phone is also slated for a second quarter release.
Nokia’s C-series is also getting new phones. There’s the $99 C100 and the $119 C200. They’re both modest phones, but they’re super affordable. These arrive in the first quarter of 2022.
Finally, Nokia has a returning phone called the 2760 Flip, which will arrive in the first quarter of 2022. It’s a flip phone following the design of the original 2760. It costs $79, so it certainly won’t break the bank for anyone who doesn’t like smartphones.
All five phones are coming to the US, so it looks like Nokia is making a big inroad in North America with its latest phones. We’ll have to wait and see if they catch on, but there should be a market for them with their affordability.
