Nokia is linked to the launch of a number of new mobile devices soon. Now, a new leak suggests that one of them will be powered by a low-end Snapdragon processor, the specs of which also indicates this potentially upcoming handset will also be 5G. Therefore, it is now being painted as a more affordable version of another rumored smartphone.

HMD Global's main mobile brand is currently thought to launch as many as 3 new phones sometime soon. Now, the blog NokiaPowerUser claims that one of them is to be the G300. It has also released a slew of new details on this potential smartphone.

This G300 does not get an exact screen size as part of this new leak, although its HD+ panel may be in the ~6.5-inch range. It is thought to be of the TFT-LCD variety, which, according to its new renders, has a waterdrop notch for its 8MP selfie camera.

The G300 is also now projected to have a classically round Nokia camera hump, containing triple rear shooters in an underwhelming 16+5+2MP configuration. It is thought to run Android 11, and to be kept on with a 4,470mAh battery.

The alleged new G300 is portrayed in an image in which various numbered features are highlighted. They do not come with a corresponding key, although it is possible one of them (4), based on its location, is a 3.5mm jack.

Its new leak does not specify its RAM size, although it is now said to have 64GB of storage augmented by support for up to 1TB microSD cards. Accordingly, the "Nokia G300" is coming into focus as a budget smartphone in this new report, something reinforced by mention of a Snapdragon 480 5G SoC.

Accordingly, it could be thought of as the cheaper alternative to the also-rumored G50. Neither phone has a concrete launch date as yet. It is just possible they may debut alongside Nokia's more definitively confirmed tablet, which is scheduled for an unveiling in October 2021.
