Nokia G21 was launched in India on Tuesday, April 26. The phone is guaranteed to get two years of Android OS and three years of monthly security updates, which as per HMD Global – which is the brand licensee of Nokia phones – is double the number that most smartphones in its price range come with. The catch is, the G21 is running Android 11 out-of-the-box and not Android 12 like, say, a Motorola phone like the G22 or the newly announced G52. Elsewhere, the Nokia G21 is also rated to deliver up to three days of battery life on a single charge. Nokia G21 price in India starts at Rs 12,999. Alongside the G21, HMD is also launching the entry-level Nokia C01 Plus with 32GB of onboard storage, Nokia 105 and Nokia 105 Plus feature phones, and Nokia Comfort Earbuds and Go Earbuds+ wireless earbuds.
