Nokia is getting ready to launch its new phone, the Nokia G42 5G, in India on September 11. Before the big launch, Nokia gave us a hint about the price from it official X (formerly Twitter) account. Plus, there's some exciting news for folks outside India as Nokia is introducing a new pink colour option for this phone in global markets.

Nokia's official page on X posted a question to people. The company asked the public to guess the price of the new Nokia G42 5G. It provided two options: Rs. 16,xxx and Rs. 18,xxx. This suggests that the phone will cost less than Rs. 18,999. There might be two versions of the phone at different prices too.

In Europe, the Nokia G42 5G is already available for EUR 199, which is around Rs. 20,800. This price is for the version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Besides the pricing news, Nokia has also introduced a new colour for the Nokia G42 5G in places outside India. This new colour is called "So Pink." It joins the already available "Grey" and "So Purple" options, which were there since the phone first came out in June. But we don't know for sure if this new pink colour will be available in India.
