Nokia Mobile is making a big push in India with the Nokia G42 5G. They’ve not only made it the first Nokia 5G smartphone to be manufactured in India, but they’ve also priced it well below the global average price. Additionally, the company has enlisted the Indian actress Mrunal Thakur as the face of the smartphone. The last time Nokia collaborated with a celebrity in India was in 2021 for the Nokia 3.4 and Nokia 2.4.
