Nokia G22 – the first Nokia smartphone with repairability at its core now available in Australia

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the Nokia G22, the first Nokia smartphone with repairability at its core, is now available in Australia.

To coincide with the launch, HMD Global will donate $20 AUD for each device sold in the month of April to Clean Up Australia, a not-for-profit organisation that empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve the environment.

The Nokia G22 takes the signature Nokia phone longevity to the next level. Thanks to its repairable design, you can keep Nokia G22 for even longer, with the ability to replace the display, charging port or  battery – even after the phone’s warranty has expired.

In collaboration with iFixit, Nokia G22 can be repaired with step-by-step repair guides and affordable replacement parts starting from $32.99 AUD. Made with a 100% recycled plastic back, in playful two-tone colourway, Nokia G22 is also built and packaged with sustainability in mind.

Brenden Folitarik, HMD Global’s Country Manager for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands: “We are delighted to support Clean Up Australia who do incredibly important work conserving our natural environment and share our vision of creating a better future that doesn’t cost the earth. We know Australians are looking for ways to live more sustainably and that they value devices they can hold onto for longer. With the new Nokia G22, we are proud to offer both longevity and performance without compromising on price or quality ,” said Mr Folitarik.
