What you need to know

  • Nokia has announced an affordable new 5G phone.
  • The Nokia G50 features a 6.82-inch HD+ display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 480 chipset, and a 5,000mAh battery.
  • It is now on sale in the UK for £200.

HMD Global has quietly expanded its budget smartphone lineup with the launch of the Nokia G50. The new G50 is the company's first G series phone to feature 5G connectivity. While it doesn't have the specs to challenge the best budget Android phones, it does appear to be more impressive than the Nokia G20.

The Nokia G50 sports a large 6.82-inch screen with HD+ resolution and a V-shaped notch for the 8MP selfie camera. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 480 chipset, which has been coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A variant of the phone with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage will also be available soon.

The budget Android phone has a triple-camera setup on the rear with a 48MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Keeping the lights on is a large 5,000mah battery with support for 18W fast charging. HMD Global claims the G50 can easily last up to two days between charges.

Other key highlights of the device include a dedicated Google Assistant button, NFC support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

It comes with Android 11 out of the box and is guaranteed to receive two years of OS upgrades. Like the best Nokia phones, the G50 will also receive three years of monthly security updates.

The phone is now available to purchase in the UK in Ocean Blue and Midnight Sun color options for £200.

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
