The presumably better model 4.2 should have a bigger screen than the lesser 3.2 model. With a 429/439 processor they probably should be Android Go handsets.


The thing that irks me is the asymmetrical corners of the screen in Nokia’s notched devices. It looks fine in portrait orientation, but when the phone is rotated into landscape orientation the corners look uneven. Yes, the notch can be hidden via Settings but the corners still don’t match!

I know, it’s an odd thing to get hung up over but the asymmetry sticks out too much for me.

Might want to check those stated PPI’s
Same resolution but different size screen can’t yield the same PPI.

For reference Nokia int’l English website list the 3.2 as 269ppi and the 4.2 as 270ppi which doesn’t seem accurate either but there’s definitely a problem when Nokia’s own listed spec is different than the one’s here.
