Nokia G11 Plus: Built on the premise of durability

If you’re on a tight budget and looking for a smartphone, one of the phones that you should probably consider is the Nokia G11 Plus. HMD Global, officially launched the phone in the country back in September last year for Ksh.18,000, so the phone has been here with us for quite some time.

At that price point, Nokia is giving us some quite interesting specs offering customers exactly what they need from a budget-priced phone.

The phone might not be particularly fast when it comes to basic tasks, it gets things done. You are also getting a very clean interface, extensive support and of course quite a nice design, making it an ideal option for anyone looking for a phone that just works. 

The Nokia G11 Plus was also among the Nokia devices that recently received an Android 13 update. The update came with a handful of new features as well as visual changes and system improvements. It also arrived with the April 2023 Android security patches.

I have always been a huge fan of the Nokia G series since HMD first introduced the first smartphone in this series. The phones are built to last, very solid and the Nokia G11 Plus is not an exception. 

HMD says Nokia G-series delivers the promise of a reliable, up-to-date smartphone to as many people as possible. They go the distance every day with some of our longest battery lives yet. Years of security updates and OS upgrades mean they’re in it for the long run, too.

When the company launched the Nokia G11 Plus in Kenya, Florian Seiche, CEO at HMD Global said people around the world are keeping their smartphones for longer due to the impact early replacement has on the environment. ‘’We are proud to be amongst the originators of the movement with our signature build quality and support commitment. ”.

”With the Nokia G11 plus, we have designed a proposition that specifically helps consumers keep their phone for longer with our promises; 3-day battery, three years of monthly security updates and three versions of Android to ensure your device is up to date,” he added.

The phone is built on the premise of a durability-first design that doesn’t compromise on looks.

The phone comes with a 6.52-inch touchscreen display (HD+) with a 90 Hz refresh rate.  Nokia G11 Plus is powered by an octa-core processor and comes with 4GB of RAM with 64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 512GB).

For the cameras, on the rear, the phone packs a dual camera setup featuring a 50-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel camera. There’s a single front camera setup for selfies, featuring an 8-megapixel sensor.

Nokia G11 Plus is based on Android 12  and thanks to the two-year software upgrade promise Nokia G11 Plus comes with, you can already look forward to the fresh features and innovations the next Android version will bring.

The phone also features a 5000 mAh, non-removable battery that HMD claims should be able to last you for 3 days. It is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) mobile that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM cards.
