A somewhat sketchy-looking rumour from earlier told us that Nokia was working on a new gaming smartphone called the Nokia G10. It came as a bit of a surprise, considering that this was uncharted territory for Nokia. Those who were expecting it to be so will be in for a bit of disappointment, as a new leak paints the device in an entirely different light.
Nokiapoweruser (the same source that purported the Nokia G10 to be a gaming smartphone) has now received word that the smartphone will come with a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen, a mystery octa-core SoC, up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, and a 4,000mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging. None of these alleged Nokia G10 specs indicates that it is a gaming smartphone. In all likelihood, Nokia got a bit too "inspired" by the recently launched Moto G10.
The leak also says that the Nokia G10 will retail at EUR 139 (US$165) for the entry-level variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. At the very least, it'll serve as a decent option for those on a tight budget. It is abundantly clear that Nokia took several pages out of Motorola's book. Therefore, we can expect its successors to arrive as the Nokia G30, Nokia G50, Nokia G100, etc. One of them could even be the Snapdragon 775-powered Nokia phone we talked about earlier.
