Review Nokia G21 – Nokia G21 still appears with a back cover that has a striped texture. However, the camera module has been moved from the center to the top left, with the three camera sensors aligned. The fingerprint sensor remains on the side, while the front screen again uses a waterdrop notch design.
Although still an IPS type with HD + resolution, the 6.5-inch screen on the Nokia G21 already supports a refresh rate of up to 90Hz (and will drop to 60Hz when needed to save automatic power). HMD has also provided Widevine L1 certification so that it can stream digital content via platforms such as Netflix, in HD resolution.
The battery capacity on this smartphone is even bigger. Now it reaches 5,050 mAh, and HMD dares to claim up to three days of use. It already supports 18W fast charging, it’s just that the adapter in the sales package has 10W power.
The last improvement is in the camera sector, where the Nokia G21’s main camera sensor has increased from 48MP to 50MP. There are no details about the aperture or sensor size, and this latest Nokia smartphone is missing the ultra-wide sensor. Because the other two sensors are only 2MP sensors for macro and depth.
The highlight is the night mode and a new feature called Super Resolution, which is said to be able to increase the detail in the resulting image. Well, what is and is not superior is the use of the Unisoc T606 octa-core 12nm chip which is much faster than the Helio G35 belonging to the previous generation. It has two Cortex-A75 cores and a more powerful GPU.
The Nokia G21 still only supports 4G networks, paired with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage options. A triple slot mechanism is provided to insert three cards at once. Run Android 11, this smartphone is ready to get Android 12 in the near future, and guarantee Android 13. Plus three years of security updates.
