Nokia Brings Its Budget Mini Flagship Phone to the UK With a £150 Price Tag

By Shabana Arif on at

Nokia is bringing a cheap as chips smartphone to the UK high street with its Nokia 4.2 that claims to have it all and more for just £150.

Available in Black and Pink Sand, the selling point - apart from the tiny price tag - is the fact that it has Google Assistant and "the latest smartphone innovations" like a dual-rear camera, biometric face unlock, its Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octa-core chipset, and that it's powered by Android Pie 9.

"In the UK, we have seen a huge increase in people using home assistants to make their busy lives easier. We wanted to bring all the same functionality and benefits at the push of a button with the Nokia 4.2," Sarah Edge, said HMD Global general manager UK and Ireland. "We know that Brits love the latest digital experiences so we’ve packed in everything you need and more into this compact sized, affordable smartphone, including a dual depth-sensing rear camera for perfect portrait shots and a modern pinhole notched display.”

The 13MP camera has a bokeh, and low-light HDR mode for "more light, less noise, bolder colours and greater dynamic range," although we'd have to give it a whirl ourselves to see how good it is for a handset that's just under £150.

You can pick on up for yourself at Amazon, Carphone Warehouse, and John Lewis, with Argos and Shop Direct to follow "shortly."
