Nokia 7 Plus
I see one post, but it wasn't clear he actually successfully rooted the phone. I've searched, and there are instructions, but there were instructions for the Nokia 7 Plus, but you're not able to unlock the bootloader so you can't root it. So, just because there are instructions , doesn't mean you can do it.

Samsung Galaxy A32 4G
I was able to successfully root my SM-A325F/DS. the DS stands for dual sim, I could not find firmware for dual sim but the stock firmware from samfw.com worked perfectly fine. I used magisk to patch the firmware and flashed it via Odin. Everything worked perfectly. I tried flashing the newest firmware but for some reason it deleted my IMEI and made the baseband version display as "Unkown". Upon flashing a patched version of the older firmware (the second newest version 2021-05-01) everything worked again. I would recommend trying the newest firmware and if you happen to encounter the same issue just flash the older one. I used the Samsung backup in settings and sent all my images over to my pc so restoring my phone took like 10-15 mins.


Edit: Some side notes. Since the SafetyNet update I was unable to pass it which isn't a problem for me but something to keep in mind.

I would also recommend getting an app like "System app remover" from the play store to manually debloat. I tried using a universal samsung debloater but it was a big mess and I ended up having to reflash.
