Samsung’s next step to 5G has arrived in the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G. It’s their third entry — and possibly the cheapest — in the mid-range 5G segment after launching the Galaxy A51 5G and A71 5G.
The phone made its entry at the Unpacked Part 2 event yesterday, though, the company didn’t unveil many details about the new phone. Regardless, Samsung did say that the Galaxy A42 5G has a quad-camera setup at the back and a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED panel. Rumors have it that the phone will power on Snapdragon 690 chipset with 4GB of RAM and a 5,000mAh battery.
Samsung has published press images showcasing the design of its new phone, which points out that the back panel has a unique four textured pattern. Meanwhile, the front seems pretty usual with a waterdrop notch, instead of a punch-hole cutout offered on Samsung’s other mid-range 5G phones lately.
As per Samsung, the phone will hit the market “later this year”, while pricing and other details are still unknown. But given its naming scheme, we expect the phone to be priced much lower than the Galaxy A51 5G.
