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.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis.

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
