HMD Global has been one of the most popular smartphone brands across the globe because of its iconic Nokia mobile phones, which are considered durable and could last longer compared to other models.

However, this giant tech manufacturer is one of the late companies to transition its technology to smartphone models.

Although this is the case, it is still making noticeable efforts to keep up with the big names, such as Samsung, Apple, Oppo, OnePlus, and other tech developers.

This can be seen specifically with its arriving Nokia G50, which is expected to compete against models like Realme 8 5G, Samsung Galaxy A32 5G, Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G, etc.

Phone Arena reported that the new Nokia G50 could be released this coming Oct. 6, which is about two weeks. However, you need to remember that the schedule of HMD Global may change. Although this is the case, you can expect it to debut before 2022 arrives. 

On the other hand, this new handset is expected to compete against other brands using its clean Android installation, 5G-connectivity at an affordable price, as well as regular system updates.

As of the moment, it is still hard to conclude that the new Nokia G50 would be a good one until it is actually released in the market.
