Nokia has recently unveiled its latest addition to the lineup, the Nokia G42. This mid-range device comes with notable features such as a high refresh rate screen and 5G capability, keeping up with the industry standard. Despite Nokia's venture into different markets over the years, it is widely recognized for producing aesthetically pleasing phones, and the G42 is no exception.
Equipped with a Snapdragon chip, this smartphone comes preloaded with the latest Android 13 operating system.

Moving on to specifications, the new device boasts a 6.56-inch HD+ display with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate. Notably, the company has emphasized its commitment to providing easy repairs by partnering with iFixit. Users will have access to the necessary parts and tools, enabling them to fix issues such as battery and display problems themselves.
Powering the device is a Snapdragon 480+ chipset paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, expandable via a microSD card slot.
