Nokia Mobile announced today a new device that will (first) be available via US carriers Tracfone and Straight Talk Wireless, in their prepaid offerings. The new device carries the name Nokia G300 and can be described in short as an affordable, 5G Nokia smartphone.
Nokia G300 comes in a nice housing with nanotextured back. The device uses an energy-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 4350 which is a fancy name for a well-known Snapdragon 480 5G processor, which is an affordable 5G chipset that can be found on most recent smartphones announced by Nokia Mobile. G300 comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, and the internal memory can be expended up to 1Tb with Micro SD cards. Other specs include 6.52-inch HD+ screen with teardrop notch where an 8MP front camera is placed. On the backside there is a 16MP main camera with OZO Audio support, 5MP ultrawide camera, and 2MP depth sensor.
The plastic backside has a similar texture as Nokia XR20 and just holds the Nokia and US carrier logo. The fingerprint reader is again mounted inside the power button which is convenient, but if you don’t like that kind of unlocking process, the phone supports face unlocking.
