About this product

So fast - Unlock the power of 5G and enjoy browsing, shopping, and sharing photos without the lag with Nokia G42 5G smartphone. And, with up to 3 days of battery life, you can get a lot done between charges. So clear - The rear triple camera works with the latest AI algorithms to make the most of any lighting condition, so you're ready to snap and share on your socials, day or night.

So clear: The 50MP camera works with some of the smartest imaging AI to capture clear shots, even in tougher conditions. Portrait Mode brings your best side to the limelight while Night Mode helps with quality shots after dark. And with OZO 3D audio capture, your videos sound as good as they look.

So much battery: Your friends are about to get battery-envy. With a 3-day battery life, your Nokia Shadow will keep going while their smartphones reach 0% half-way through the night. Better get used to it - the battery will keep 80% of its original capacity after 800 full charging cycles - that's about four years of charges.
