The Nokia 4.2 brings dual cameras to an even lower price point than before and in an appealing looking phone body too.

Nokia is a brand with a certain quantity of prestige behind it, but since its re-emergence in 2017 as an Android phone maker, its bread and butter has been in much more affordable fare. That's the aim of HMD Global, the company that licenses the Nokia name for its affordable and stylish phones.

The Nokia 4.2 sits more or less in the middle to upper tier of Nokia's 2019 announced handset portfolio. It's a little bit fancier than the Nokia 3.2 or Nokia 1 Plus, but well below the impressive Nokia 9. Then again, it's far more affordably priced than that handset.


  • 5.71-inch display
  • Black and pink sand finishes
  • Dedicated Google Assistant button


  • Dual rear 13MP+2MP rear camera
  • 8MP front camera


  • Snapdragon 439 processor
  • Android One for quick updates


  • 3,000mAh battery

Early verdict

  • Could be a real budget bargain
