Is Nokia G10 a gaming phone?
A big question has been arising along with the leaks and rumors of the smartphone. Even if the specifications mentioned above are correct, it is pretty underwhelming to have such a gaming phone, even if it turns out to be the one.
Other sides of the rumors say the listing on the Russian retailer website could be a placeholder to the actual product as such practices are being followed by e-commerce. To clarify, the specifications mentioned do not come near the gaming phone requirements.
Even though the rumors say Nokia G10 to be a gaming phone as it also has ‘G’ in its naming, it could also be a budget phone.

The rumors about the date have not arrived yet, and there is also no confirmation from the company. So, we expect the launch to happen near June 2021. Having looked at all the rumors, we have to wait for a while to get the confirmed launch date, specifications, and availability.
HMD Global is also preparing for its H10 series. The naming convention of the smartphone is also rumored to be changed later this year. Information says Nokia may remove the dots after the numbers in the naming convention.
