Nokia G10, Nokia G20 India launch up next as phones get spotted on BIS website

Highlights
  • Nokia G10 and Nokia G20 have received the BIS certification.
  • Key Nokia G10 and G20 specs include a 6.5-inch HD+ screen, a 5,000mAh battery, and MediaTek chipsets.
  • Nokia G10 and Nokia G20 prices in India could be lower than those in Europe. 

Nokia launched a whole barrage of low-cost smartphones in Europe some time ago. These included the Nokia G10 and Nokia G20. They could arrive in India soon, as well-known Twitter tipster Mukul Sharma aka @Stufflistings stumbled upon both devices on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website. It was only a matter of time before the Nokia G10 and Nokia G20 India launch would happen, as both phones are ideal competitors for India’s lucrative low-cost smartphone market. However, the Nokia G10 and Nokia G20 prices in India will have to be lower than its European siblings, otherwise, they run the risk of being decimated by similarly-priced devices from Realme and Xiaomi. 

Nokia G10 and Nokia G20 price in India (expected)

Nokia G10 sells in Europe for EUR 139 (approx Rs 12,000) for the base variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Similarly, the Nokia G20 retails at EUR 159 (approx Rs 14,000) for the version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. However, these are region-specific prices and Nokia will sell these at a lower cost in India.
