HMD has unveiled the new Nokia G42, a mid-range phone with an emphasis on repairability. Together with the specialists from iFixit, Nokia will provide repair manuals and OEM parts such as displays, batteries and charging connectors for the G42 for five years. This will make it the first Nokia 5G cell phone that customers can repair themselves. The back is made of recycled plastic and houses a 50-megapixel main camera with an f/1.8 aperture, as well as a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

The Nokia G42 is based on a 6.56-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The display also features a waterdrop notch for the 8-megapixel front camera and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a Snapdragon 480+ chipset with 4/6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot. Android 13 is used as the operating system. But HMD promises two years of operating system updates and three years of monthly security patches.

The Nokia G42 is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with 20 watt fast charging. According to HMD, the cell should last three days with average use and retain 80% of its original capacity after 800 charging cycles. There is also an IP52 certification, a headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor built into the side.

The Nokia G42 is available in purple and gray colors. Prices start at €249/£199 for the 6/128GB version. A new display is €50/£45, a replacement battery is €25/£23 and a charging port is €20/£19.
