The Nokia G22 is one of several new Android phones announced by HMD Global ahead of Mobile World Congress 2023. It’s built with a focus on repairability, as it was created in partnership with world-renowned gadget repair service iFixit, and can supposedly be fitted with a new battery in only five minutes.
The G22 is one modest Android phone otherwise. It comes with a 6.52-inch IPS HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 3, a 90Hz display refresh rate, a 50MP main camera, 8MP selfie cam, dust- and splash-resistance as well as Face Unlock built-in. Its preloaded OS is Android 12.
It’s not the most powerful phone out there, running on a 12nm octa-core Unisoc T606 chip and 4GB RAM, and choices of either 64GB and 128GB storage plus a microSD card slot. However, it does come with plenty of wired and wireless connectivity options – including dual-band ac WiFi, USB Type-C 2.0 with OTG support, NFC, and Power Delivery 3.0.
The G22’s pre-installed battery offers a standard capacity of 5,050mAh, and it can be bought in up to two different color choices: Meteor Gray or Lagoon Blue. It’s being made available first in Europe with a price of around 180 Euros or about Php 10,400.
Local release date info should soon follow.
