Nokia G300 is a $199 5G phone for Tracfone and Straight Talk customers

Why should postpaid mobile customers have all the 5G fun? HMD Global, the manufacturer behind new Nokia phones, is announcing its most affordable 5G phone yet for Tracfone and Straight Talk Wireless’ prepaid customers – the Nokia G300. It doesn’t try to wow you with flagship-level specs but offers the features at an affordable price. One of the most useful features of the G300 is its fingerprint scanner. It is integrated with the power button so that you can unlock your phone while pressing the same button to wake it up. It has a 4,470mAh battery, which Nokia claims will last about two days. The G300’s 16-megapixel rear camera has a relatively large aperture (f/1.8) that, coupled with its 2-megapixel depth sensor and 5-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.2), already sounds like a step up from the REVVL V Plus 5G’s camera. Surprisingly, this phone can record 1080p videos at 60 frames per second, using electronic image stabilisation (EIS) to help reduce your hand’s natural shakiness. It is also powered by the same 5G-compatible Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor as the N200 and is supported by 4GB of RAM.
