Newly introduced to Nokia’s entry-level series of smartphones is the recently launched Nokia G50 5G. It is also touted to be the Finnish brand‘s largest and most affordable 5G-capable handset yet.
The new smartphone arrives with a 6.82-inch HD+ LCD display with a 60Hz refresh rate. Accompanying the large screen is a small waterdrop notch and a large chin that features the Nokia branding. Being an entry-level device, it is understandable that the company would skip a punch-hole cutout approach for the front-facing camera, although it is undeniable that some users may be put off by the chin. Other than that, the G50 5G is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a dedicated Google Assistant button, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
