G60 may be 7 inch display with ugly quad bumb camera setup.
G70 may be 8 inch display with ugly five embossed camera setup
G80 may be 9 inch display with ugly six embossed camera setup.

G100 may be 11 inch display with ugly eight embossed camera setup (this G100 you can use like phone and mini laptop). 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.

could have been good, alas the negatives of it (massive screen, 720 res, super weak chipset (no surprise there though hmd)) far outweigh any good to be found (3.5mm, 48mp cmos (that's it).

Everything is great apart from the huge abnoxious display. 6.8 inches??? Who the hell needs that. And 720p nonetheless. 720p isonly fine for 5.8" and below. Im pretty sure on this display you can see individual pixels while using the phone normally.

OnePlus Nord N200 5G is better than this crap.

It's image processing capabilities are a lot inferior to the superior series, so worse cameras
despite the sensor you use, also lower native sound quality, etc, so i can careless of the raw performance when the extras!!!! aren't there. Is like put a turbo in a small Lada, it will not make it more appealing and comfortable.

From everything I've read, the SD 480 performs much better than previous 400-class chips. How well it performs on the G50 depends on optimization, but in theory, it should be pretty good.

I found both of these videos informative:

How can some company launch such mediocre phones back to back?? Even if apple launch low specs phone they would launch it for lesser price than this & will have much better specs. Nokia Brand name is just a label on the hmd phones.

Is this a joke or seriously Nokia did this design purposely?

1. You said camera, sd 480 has triple 12 bit isp (same as sd 888 and 778), while sd 720G has dual 14bit isp, sd 720G can handle single camera well sd 480G can handle multiple camera with easy, nowadays phone dont use single camera, almost all phones has 3 or more sd 480G is much better in this aspect.

2. Sd 480G has support for Quick charge 4+ compare to 4 of 720G.

3. Sd 480G has support of faster memory, 2.1ghz ddr4 (dual chanell, same frequency as sd 855 but fewer chanell) ram compare 1.8ghz of sd 720G and same to ufs sd 480G support 2.2 version.

4. Sd 480G has better modem (even lte)

So sd 480G is not inferior to sd 7xx series.

5G for 5G's sake.

Rather save money and battery life, then having 5G that this phone cannot really benefit from.

Like add slick tyres to a Nissan Micra. It's not going to go any faster.

Nokia name should not have revived by this stupid new owners, hugely disappointing products one after another, they are just not putting any effort. Good Bye Nokia!

Another Snapdragon 4xx with the same price as Xiaomi or Realme phone with Snapdragon 6xx or even 7xx. Nokia never learn.
