Nokia 4.2 is set to launch in India on May 7, HMD Global has confirmed through a teaser posted on Twitter. The official teaser that carries a short video showing a power button with an LED notification light and a dedicated Google Assistant button. These were notably the USPs of the Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 that both debuted at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 exhibition in Barcelona, Spain, in February. The latest teaser comes just days after the listing of the Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 emerged on the official Nokia website.
HMD Global has confirmed the launch of the Nokia 4.2 through the teaser posted via the Nokia Mobile India Twitter account. The teaser that was published on Friday says that the phone is set to debut in four days -- pointing towards the May 7 as the launch date.
