Nokia Brings New G Series to US
HMD Global is officially bringing its new Nokia G20 phone to the US for $200. The Nokia G10 was released here a few weeks ago. Nokia's new model lineup consists of the entry-level C series, mainstream G series, and higher-end X series. Each series has two models so far. Nokia has yet to announce plans for its C and X series in the US. The new G-series phones will both sold unlocked in the US on nokia.com. These first two G-series phones are nearly identical at first glance, including the same body, 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display, 5,050 mAh battery, and side-mounted fingerprint reader. While the G10 has relatively basic specs and sells for $150, the G20 (shown) has several key upgrades to justify its $50 premium, including NFC, a 48 megapixel main camera, added wide-angle camera (5 megapixel), faster MediaTek Helio processor, 4 GB RAM instead of 3, and 128 GB storage instead of 32. Both phones have the same basic US 4G network support, including bands 2, 4, 5, 12, and 66. This is adequate for use with AT&T and T-Mobile, but won't provide full coverage with T-Mobile, nor the best service with AT&T. Both phones come with Android 11. For its new G series, HMD promises two years of major Android updates — including Android 12 — and three years of monthly security updates. The G20 will be available in two colors: Night and Glacier. The Nokia G10 is available now, while the G20 goes on sale July 1st.

Samsung today officially unveiled its Galaxy S21 series of flagship phones for 2021. All three models sport a distinctive new "Contour Cut Camera" design where the metal frame extends around one corner to surround the rear cameras.
OnePlus has an unusually confusing array of different "flagship" phones available right now, but the 7T is the newest mainstream model for most people. It's still quite high-end, but for a reasonable price and without some of the crazier features of the new Pro models, which most people don't need anyway.

Qualcomm this week launched the "Snapdragon 865 and 765 Modular Platforms", which are pre-engineered and pre-certified circuit boards that include most of the critical components for a high-end 5G phone (or equivalent cellular device.) As phones have become more sophisticated and refined, the costs of developing a competitive high-end phone have become prohibitive for all but the largest companies. This new program from Qualcomm aims to level that playing field for smaller companies.
