Nokia 4.2 has finally been launched in the Indian market. HMD Global on Tuesday announced the release of the Nokia 4.2 in the country. Based on Google’s Android One platform, the Nokia 4.2 was originally unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February this year. The smartphone took a significant time to reach India shores despite being a smartphone that is likely to get a decent amount of traction in the country. The new Nokia smartphone comes with two interesting additions that have not been traditionally present in the company’s phones – a dedicated Google Assistant button and a notification light in the power button. The Nokia 3.2, which was announced alongside Nokia 4.2 at MWC 2019, is still missing from HMD Global’s India portfolio.
