HMD Global has announced a new mid-range handset has hit Australian retailers, with the Nokia G21 now available to purchase.

The mid-range phone is well priced at $299 and is an absolute gold mine for anyone who wants to keep their phone for a long time. HMD Global are offering both a 3-year warranty included as well as a 3-year guarantee for security updates – though only two years for feature updates. In keeping with the 3-year warranty and update promise, HMD Global say the phone can last for up to 3-days on the 5050 mAh battery inside.

There’s a Unisoc processor running the phone, with 4GB RAM/128GB storage included as well as a microSD card slot for storage expansion, with a big 6.5″ LCD panel with 90Hz refresh rate on the front which includes a tear-drop notch that contains the 8MP selfie camera.

The phone includes a triple-lens camera system on the rear, with a 50 MP main sensor and 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensors, which HMD Global says will allow you to create professional-looking photography.

Launching with Android 12, there are two feature updates guaranteed for the phone, so you’ll be running Android 14 by the time they’re done. HMD Global have pre-loaded Spotify onto the phone, as well as ExpressVPN for added security while surfing which comes with a 30-day free trial.

Speaking about the launch of the G21, Florian Seiche, CEO at HMD Global said 

“We continue to push boundaries in the mid-range segment providing affordable, secure and competitive technology for all. I am delighted to unveil the Nokia G21. 

This device epitomises the durability and long-lasting battery life qualities Nokia phones became famous for all those years ago. This combined with the best of Android software, cements our vision for 2022 and beyond – as we continue to build phones that last for longer.” 

The Nokia G21 will be available in either Dusk or Blue colour options starting at AUD$299 . You’ll be able to find it in-store at ‘all major retailers’ and on
