The Nokia 4.2 is the first phone from the company to come with a dedicated Google Assistant button. By placing an AI button on the side of the device, HMD aims to make it easier than ever for consumers to interact with Assistant. A single press of the button will give you instant access to Assistant. Double pressing the button will bring up a display of relevant information for the day and a long press of the button will allow you to make longer requests.
The latest Nokia phone is also one of the first from the company to sport a waterdrop notch. This means you get thinner bezels and a less distracting notch compared to the wide notches on the Nokia 5.1 Plus and 6.1 Plus last year. Not only does the Nokia 4.2 offer a more immersive display, but it also Widevine L1 certified, which means you will be able to stream content on Netflix and Prime Video in true HD resolution provided the platforms offer that support to the Nokia 4.2 as well.
The Nokia 4.2 also touts a premium design for an affordable smartphone. It sports a 2.5D glass on the front and back. The rear glass panel makes the handset look rich and the company is also launching the Nokia 4.2 in a new Pink Sand colour in addition to Black.
-- Much like every other Nokia phone, the Nokia 4.2 is also an Android One device that runs on stock Android 9 Pie. This also means the phone will receive two major software updates in the future as well as monthly Android security patches.
