The Nokia G42 is an interesting midrange device announced by Nokia Mobile in June. The codename ‘Tiramisu’ is really fitting for this device, as it excels in terms of hardware specs, design, and price, just like a delicious tiramisu cake.
The main features of the Nokia G42 include a Snapdragon 480+ 5G processor, a 50 MP main camera, a 5000 mAh battery, and an IP52 water and dustproof rating. This device also introduces the ‘Quick Fix’ feature, which allows you to easily replace the battery, charging port, or display with official parts that will be available for the next 5 years on iFixit.
The memory configuration for the G42 is 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, with the ability to expand the storage virtually by an additional 5 GB. While this is great, the 128 GB of internal storage might seem a bit limited, although the device supports MicroSD cards of up to 1 TB. However, I’m not a fan of MicroSD cards, and cloud storage isn’t always affordable for everyone, so the additional memory could be a great feature. However, in the EU market, you can only get the 6/128 GB variant for a discounted price of €229.99.
In India, on the other hand, you can find the Nokia G42 with 256 GB of internal storage and 8 GB of RAM, which can be further boosted with an additional 8 GB of virtual RAM. So it is actually a 256/16GB variant :).
While the phone is mentioned on the local Nokia webshop, you should be able to purchase it exclusively through Amazon for ₹16,999. However, it may not be listed on Amazon yet, so you may need to check local retail stores. Some of them already seem to have it available, as suggested by the photo below.
Well, perhaps this memory variant could perform just as well in Europe and other markets, especially if it is priced similarly to India (€193).
