“Aside from customer demand, we at HMD Global saw the growing 5G deployment across the country as an opportunity to bring Filipino fans a reliable technology that’s better for the pocket and the planet. The Nokia G50 has superior build quality, modern features, and stunning design that’s accessible at a friendly price point. It comes with software security updates so fans can use them for much longer. Through this new 5G phone, we strengthen our Love It, Trust It and Keep It philosophy, encouraging people to buy devices less frequently in line with our goal of reducing carbon footprint and countering the upgrade culture across regions.”
