Mid-range Nokia 4.2 now available in US for just $189

HMD Global this week announced it has started taking pre-orders for its Nokia 4.2 smartphone. Initially announced at Mobile World Congress back in February, the phone features a 5.71-inch display and dual 13-megapixel cameras on the rear.

The Nokia 4.2 is a budget device and carries just a $189 price tag. It features mid-range hardware such as its Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor and 3GB RAM. Internal storage is 32GB and the battery is rated at 3,000mAh.

The Nokia 4.2 is an Android One device which means it will have at least two years of software updates and three years of bugs and patches. It also means it runs a clean version of Android that’s void of any extra customization and software.

Also worth noting, the phone has a dedicated voice assistant button for Google Assistant. Pressing it once wakes the tool while pressing it twice brings up Google’s visual snapshot. A long press has it listening to your voice commands indefinitely in walkie talkie mode.

As far as aesthetics go, the Nokia 4.2 does have a somewhat small cutout display, or notch. And, while it does have a little thicker bezel than today’s flagships, it’s fairly reasonable for a phone in this price range.

The Nokia 4.2 is available in black and pink and is expected to start shipping on May 15.
