Delhi : Next week, the Nokia G42 5G will formally launch in India. The HMD Global licensee teased the price of its new G series smartphone on Thursday (September 7) through X (formerly known as Twitter), while we wait for the official announcement. In addition, Nokia has added a new color choice for the Nokia G42 5G in regions throughout the world other than India. The device has a triple back camera setup, with a 50-megapixel main sensor at the center, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ SoC. It has been announced that Amazon India would sell the Nokia G42 5G in the nation.

In its most recent tweet, Nokia's official India X account invited users to predict the cost of the Nokia G42 5G. The article cites two prices, Rs. 16,xx and Rs. 18,xx, indicating that the phone won't cost Rs. 18,999 or more. The two pricing points can also refer to two memory options.

The price of the Nokia G42 5G in Europe is EUR 199 (6GB RAM + 128GB storage), or around Rs 20,800.

Additionally, in areas outside of India, the Nokia G42 5G now comes in a new color choice called So Pink. Alongside the Grey and So Purple color variants that have previously been made available in a few international areas since the phone's original debut in June, the new color version will be accessible. The availability of the most recent colour in India has not been confirmed by Nokia.

On September 11, the Nokia G42 5G will be released in India, and only Amazon will be able to purchase it.
