Nokia just released two smartphones under the company’s G-series. The Nokia G11 and G21 are both successors to last year’s G10 and G20 respectively. The key difference between these two new comers lies majorly in their storage and camera specs.

Both the G11 and G21 has three camera lenses on their rears, but while the G11’s primary lens is a 13-megapixel, the G21 has 50-megapixel main shooter. The other two auxiliary lenses are a 2-megapixel depth and a 2-megapixel macro sensor on both side, while an 8-megapixel selfie lens is kept in the front of both.

As for their storage department, the G11 is only available in 3GB RAM with 32GB ROM, while the G21 comes in either 3GB + 64GB, 4GB + 64GB or 4GB + 128GB. Thankfully, all storage options are expandable via a dedicated external SD-card.

Nokia has made two significant changes on these new G-series in comparison to their predecessors. First, the design; although the screen on both model remains a 6.5-inches with a dewdrop notch on both model, the rear camera design has shifted from the centralized circular module on the older units, to a sided vertical lens arrangement. Secondly, both the G11 and G21 now relies on UNISOC CPU, instead of the MediaTek Chipset on their predecessors.
