Nokia 4.2 Specifications, Availability and Price

The Nokia 4.2, despite what the model name might suggests, isn’t an heir to a specific device. Not only that, but it’s the first Nokia phone ever to use the number 4 at that start of its model number.

The Nokia 4.2 is a dual-glass smartphone with a plastic frame, which makes its build the most premium of the newly announced budget offers. The 4.2 model packs a waterdrop-notched TFT display of 720p and 5.71″ in diagonal.
