At Mobile World Congress, European phone maker HMD Global have taken the wraps off three new devices, as well as announced plans for bringing manufacturing back to Europe. 

The European manufacturing announcement will see handsets begin being manufactured in Europe starting this year, with HMD saying the move will ‘offer customers a high

level of security assurance through customised software and security features’. 

Jean-Francois Baril, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of HMD Global: 

We are very pleased to announce this first step in our journey to bring 5G device manufacturing to Europe. The Nokia brand has a proud history, and with this move we are continuing to strengthen our position for secure, durable, and sustainable devices.


The announcement includes three devices, the Nokia C22, C32 and G22, offering affordable design focused handsets with up to three days battery life. Additionally the G22 will also offer repairability with a new partnership with iFixit announced. 

Nokia G22

The longevity of devices has been a focus of HMD Global with their Nokia range, and after starting to offer 3-year warranties on their G-Series in September last year, they’re now offering repairability as a feature on the phone.

To enable this repairability, HMD Global have partnered with DIY repair focused iFixit for the launch, with iFixit supplying Clear Guides for repair, Easy access to parts and Standardised Tools.

The new G22 offers an easy to repair design, which can see you swapping out the battery in under 5 minutes with simple tools, while a display can be swapped in under 20 minutes following the supplied guides. Best of all, these self repairs won’t affect the three year warranty on the phone.

Spec wise, the Nokia G32 will also be powered by a Unisoc processor, though it will be paired with 4GB of RAM and there will be either 64GB or 128GB of on-board storage. A Triple camera array on the rear will be headlined by a 50MP AI Camera. 

Nokia will offer the G22 with a 100% recycled plastic back in two colours: Lagoon Blue + Meteor Grey.


At the more affordable end of the range, the Nokia C22 and C32 will both include 3-day battery life, and offer improved camera performance on the lower end devices thanks to HMD Global bringing algorithms from their higher end devices to their budget range.

Nokia C22

At the entry level, the Nokia C22 will include a 6.517-inch HD+ resolution display and will be powered by an octa-core Unisoc Processor. There will be two configurations: 2GB or 3GB of RAM, though both will come with 64GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot. There’s also that 5,000mAh battery offering up to 3 days of battery life.

The C22 includes a dual camera with a 13MP AF main sensor and 2MP Macro camera on the rear which HMD Global says will offer a ‘powerful Night Mode and portrait mode’, with an 8MP selfie camera on the front. 

HMD Global will be using Google’s Android 13 Go Edition software which offers a smaller footprint for software on the Nokia C22, offering up to 20% more free storage. HMD Global have promised ‘2 Years Quarterly Security Patches’.

The design of the phone will be unibody that includes IP52 splash resistance, and the C22 will come in two colour options: Midnight Black + Sand in a nano-texture finish. 

Nokia C32

The Nokia C32 will also have the same 6.517-inch HD+ resolution in-cell display and octa-core Unisoc 9863A processor, 64GB of on-board storage with microSD card and 5,000mAh battery with 3-day battery life. The C32 though will see a bump to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM.

The camera too will see an update to a 50MP main sensor with 2MP macro lens, while on the front the 8MP selfie camera will stay the same. 

The Nokia C32 will also use full Android 13 rather than Go edition, with HMD Global also promising ‘2 years Quarterly Security Patches’.

The design of the Nokia C32 will also see a bump to a rear glass panel which has been toughened and will be offered in three colours: Charcoal + Autumn Green + Beach Pink. 


The Nokia G22 will be available to pre-order in Australia from late March and to purchase from early April starting at $349 AUD. Repair kits and replacement parts for Nokia G22 are available from including display + Fix Kit at $89.99 AUD, battery + Fix Kit at $49.99 AUD, and charging port + Fix Kit at $42.99. Parts are also sold separately.

The Nokia C-series will see the phones launch separately with the Nokia C32 arriving in May for RRP $249 AUD from mid May. The Nokia C22 will be arriving in the second half of the year – but no pricing has been given. 

HMD Global are also announcing a new Nokia 65W Dual Port Wall Charger offering faster charging and a case made from 70% recycled materials which will be available from in the second half of 2023, however no pricing has been announced as yet.
