Welcome onboard the new member of Samsung’s Galaxy M-line, the Galaxy M42 5G. If you look at the phone’s design, you get that vibe of Galaxy A42 5G and the internal specs pretty much make it the case. Nonetheless, the phone becomes the first 5G phone in the Galaxy M lineup, which is surprising given Samsung’s over-emphasis on mid-range smartphones.
To start off, the Galaxy M42 5G has a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED panel with HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch that hides a 20MP f/2.2 selfie shooter. The rear houses a 48MP main sensor with an 8MP ultrawide sensor and two 5MP helpers for macro and depth perception.
Internally, the phone rocks a Snapdragon 750G processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage which is expandable with a microSD card. There’s a 5,000mAh battery pumping the juice with support for 15W charging.
The Samsung Galaxy M42 5G is official in India in Prism Dot Black and Prism Dot Grey color options and starts at a price of NPR 21,999 (around NPR 35,000 in Nepal) for a 6GB/128GB model. For the 8GB/128GB variant, users will have to pay INR 23,999 (around NPR 38,300 in Nepal). Sales begin in India from May 1 via Amazon India and Samsung’s official website. Expect this phone to launch in Nepal sooner or later this year.
