Nokia G42 5G repairable phone - techbuzzireland

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announces a brand-new repairable phone, the Nokia G42 5G in So Purple.

The Nokia G42 5G is built with QuickFix repairability so you can replace cracked screens, bent charging ports and old batteries, all by yourself¹. In collaboration with iFixit, the Nokia G42 5G can be repaired with handy step-by-step repair guides and affordable replacement parts.

Coming hot on the heels of the 2023 Colour of the Year – Digital Lavender, predicted by global trend forecasting experts WSGN, the Nokia G42 5G arrives in So Purple and is our first repairable smartphone with 5G connectivity² so you can snap, share, shop, stream in style, all at your own pace. Plus, it’s made with 65% recycled back cover and boxed in FSC®-certified mixed packaging.

It’s safe to say Purple is having a moment this year. Not only does the Nokia G42 5G look great, it’s also a continuation of our repairability journey which is now a fundamental part of the way we design smartphones.

I’m thrilled to see how our partnership with HMD Global is turning the tide in favor of self-repairs. This is not just about providing parts; it’s about seeding the DIY ethos among consumers and signaling that the era of self-service repairs is truly upon us. Kyle Wiens, CEO, iFixit
So fast

Get answers. Share photos. Browse, shop, work and play – whatever being online means for you, 5G connectivity powered by the Snapdragon® 480 Plus 5G Mobile Platform, gets you where you want to go, fast. Plus, with plenty of memory, loads of storage space and smart background optimisation, you can jump from one app to the other with no problems.

So clear

The 50MP camera works with some of our smartest imaging AI to capture clear shots, even in tougher conditions. Portrait Mode brings your focus point into the limelight while Night Mode helps with quality shots after dark which can all be viewed on the 6.56” HD+ display. And with OZO 3D audio capture, your videos sound as good as they look.

So much battery

With a whopping 3-day battery life³, your Nokia G42 5G battery will keep 80% of its original capacity after 800 full charging cycles – that’s about four years of charges.

So durable and secure

Like all our Nokia phones, the Nokia G42 5G is built to last and has been rigorously tested for durability against everyday knocks. It also stays up to date, with 3 years of monthly security updates and 2 years of OS upgrades⁵.

With Android™ 13, you have more control over what information apps can and can’t access including specific photos, videos and clipboard history. With up to 3 years of monthly security updates⁵, you won’t be worrying about ‘outdated protection’ any time soon.
