HMD Global, the powerhouse brand behind Nokia smartphones, has launched its first ever smartphone that has repairability at its core, with HMD Global willing to donate $20 AUD for each device sold in the month of April to Clean Up Australia.

The new device, called the Nokia G22, takes the signature Nokia phone longevity to the next level and thanks in part to its repairable design, you can keep Nokia G22 for even longer, with the ability to replace the display, charging port or battery – even after the phone’s warranty has expired.

There has been a partnership and collaboration with iFixit, Nokia G22 can be repaired with step-by-step repair guides and affordable replacement parts starting from $32.99 AUD.

Brenden Folitarik, HMD Global’s Country Manager for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands has stated:

“We are delighted to support Clean Up Australia who do incredibly important work conserving our natural environment and share our vision of creating a better future that doesn’t cost the earth. We know Australians are looking for ways to live more sustainably and that they value devices they can hold onto for longer. With the new Nokia G22, we are proud to offer both longevity and performance without compromising on price or quality.”

The Nokia G22 comes with a 6.5 inch IPS LCD (720 x 1600) that is powered by an Octa-core (2×1.6 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.6 GHz Cortex-A55) Unisoc T606 processor alongside 4GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage which can be extended via MicroSD card to 2TB.

In terms of cameras, the Nokia G22 comes with a triple rear camera set-up made up of a 50 MP Main Lens, a 2 MP Depth Sensor and a 2 MP Macro lens. The front-facing camera is an 8 MP lens.

The Nokia G22 comes with a Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz dual band) alongside NFC capabilities and Bluetooth version 5.0. There is also a 3.5mm audio jack for those who like to still use wired headphones.

Lastly, the Nokia G22 comes with two years of Android OS upgrades, three years of monthly security updates and an extended three-year warranty at no extra cost.

The Nokia G22 comes in Lagoon Blue or Meteor Grey and is available through the Nokia/HMD global website alongside all leading retailers and E-retailers for $349.

Alex, one serious question you forgot to ask the HMD Global reps, before commencing on this article for them:
“Why would ANYONE waste money getting a 720p device in the first place?”
A 720p screen is well and truly substandard, even for third world emerging markets now.
