Nokia 4.2 smartphone is all set to launch in India next week on May 7, HMD Global has confirmed. The Finnish smartphone maker took to Twitter to post a teaser that confirms the launch of its upcoming handset. The official teaser has a short video that shows a power button with an LED notification light and a Google Assistant button.
We should mention that these are among the highlights of the Nokia 4.2 smartphone, that made its global debut at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, Spain in February this year. It is also worth noticing that the company has posted this teaser just days after Nokia 4.2 and Nokia 3.2 handsets were listed on the company’s official website.
The company took to Nokia Mobile India’s official Twitter account to confirm the launch of the Nokia 4.2 smartphone. The teaser was posted on Friday, May 3, 2019, and it said that the handset is all set to launch in India in the next four days. This basically means that we will see the device get launched in the country on May 7. The teaser posted by the company is a short 14-seconds video that, as we mentioned earlier, shows a power button that sports an LED notification light and a dedicated Google Assistant key on the handset.
