As reported by GSMArena, photography enthusiasts will benefit from a quad camera setup on the rear of the handset, featuring a 49MP primary camera, a 5MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth camera. Meanwhile, the front of the Nokia G20 will house an 8MP selfie camera in a small and unassuming notch.

Weighing just 197g, the Nokia G20 will house a sizable 5,050 mAh battery that can be charged via the USB-C port at up to 10W. This should mean that the battery life could last as long as three days. Meanwhile, there will also be a side-mounted fingerprint reader for biometric authentication and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The Nokia G20 is rated IPX2, which means that it should be resistant to rain.
