In terms of pricing, the Nokia G21 comes in a couple of storage and memory variants of 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. The base variant is priced at Rs. 12,999 while the top-end variant is priced at Rs. 14,999. The phone comes in two colour options Nordic Blue or Dusk shades. As a part of the launch offer, Nokia, in collaboration with Bajaj FinServ, is offering the phone in easy EMI’s without any upfront payment. In case you purchase the phone from Nokia’s official website, the company is bundling a pair of Nokia BH-405 TWS free.

HMD-led Nokia has launched the Nokia G21, a low-cost Android smartphone in India. Before arriving on the Indian subcontinent, the phone was recently released in overseas markets. The device’s USP is its 5050 mAh battery, which the firm claims can easily provide over a day’s worth of backup. Nokia phones are also noted for their near-stock Android experience, and the firm expects to provide Android updates for the next two years.


  • The screen on the Nokia G21 is a 6.5-inch panel with 720*1600 pixels resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. It sports a triple camera setup at the back with a 50MP primary sensor, a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, it has an 8MP camera for selfies and video calls. The phone runs on a near-stock version of Android 11 and the company plans to offer Android updates for two years. Powering the phone is a 5050 mAh battery that supports up to 18W fast charging. Combined with a low-end chipset, lack of 5G connectivity and a low-resolution LCD display, this battery could easily last for well over a day – as promised by the company.

  • This is the first phone to launch in India after HMD’s decision to focus only on affordable and cheap Android phones. The Nokia G21 is aimed at budget smartphone users who do not want to buy a 5G phone yet. It comes equipped with a Unisoc T606 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. You have an option to expand the storage via micro-SD card though.

While the company might have decided to not focus on value for money or flagship phones, devices like the Nokia G21 cannot be feature-rich. Hence the company needs to focus on pricing the phones aggressively while offering other benefits that can add more value to the buyers.
