HMD Global has announced one of the most affordable 5G phones to date dubbed the Nokia G300. The handset starts at only $200 and comes with a tall screen, and a sizable battery with fast charging.

Design and Display

Nokia Launches G300 With 5G and 4,470 mAh Battery for Only $200

The $200 price point brings you a 6.5-inch LCD with 720p resolution, a waterdrop notch, and a thick bottom bezel, the classical budget phone look. However, unlike most entry-level phones, the fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side and doubles as the power button.

Nokia’s usual circular camera setup is there as well.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get the Snapdragon 480 5G chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Since it is only a budget chipset, you get six Cortex-A55 efficiency cores at 1.8GHz and a duo of Cortex-A76 performance cores at 2.0GHz.

It boots stock Android 11 out of the box and should get updates for 2 years.

Cameras

The main camera setup consists of a 16MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The main camera is loaded with a variety of features such as Night mode, Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), OZO audio surround, wind noise cancellation, etc.

The waterdrop notch under the earpiece carries an 8MP selfie camera with its own AI features.

Battery and Pricing

Despite being an entry-level phone, it still brings a reliable 4,470 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support through a USB C port.

The Nokia G300 will go for sale next week for $200.
