HMD, the maker of Nokia phones, has introduced the Nokia G42 5G So Pink in Australia, following the success of the Nokia G42 5G So Purple repairable phone.

The Nokia G42 5G offers a striking colour, three-day battery life, Android 13 and triple AI camera at a sub-$450 price point.

The Nokia G42 5G in So Pink continues HMD Global’s leadership in self-repairability. A cracked screen, as well as damaged charging ports and batteries can be repaired at home with iFixit’s DIY kits starting from $42.99 and step-by-step repair guides.

The Nokia G42 5G is made with a 65% recycled back cover and boxed in FSC-certified mixed packaging. It also comes with three years of monthly security updates, two years of OS upgrades and an industry-leading three-year warranty.

HMD Global country manager for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, Brenden Folitarik said, “Being on-trend is incredibly important but the Nokia G42 5G in So Pink is more than this. It’s time to ‘Pink Differently’. In our So Pink colourway, we have proven that you can be fashionable and 5G connected without the heavy price tag of either an expensive smartphone or repairs.”  

HMD Global chief marketing officer, Lars Silberbauer added,“Repairable and fashionable – the new So Pink Nokia G42 5G ticks all the boxes. It does good and looks good. Why should repairable be dull? This 5G smartphone has a brilliant vibrant design that people will hopefully appreciate.”

The screen is bright and clear with Gorilla 3 glass and an IP52 rating for protection against water sprays and dust. It has been rigorously tested for durability against everyday knocks.

The 50MP camera works with imaging AI to capture clear shots, even in tougher conditions. Portrait Mode brings the focus point into the limelight while Night Mode helps with quality shots after dark which can be viewed on the 6.56-inch HD+ display accompanied by OZO 3D audio capture.

The Nokia G42 5G in So Pink is available in 6/128GB storage and memory configurations from RRP $449 from JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, Nokia online, TVSN, Amazon, Catch and Kogan.
