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 announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.
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.
