Galaxy F42 5G News: New information has come about Samsung’s new mid-segment phone with 5G support, the Galaxy F42 5G. The phone will come with an affordable price.
South Korean technology giant Samsung is preparing another low-cost smartphone with 5G support. The phone, which is expected to be named Galaxy F42 5G (SM-E426B), had previously received Wi-Fi certification. Now the phone is listed in the Bluetooth SIG industry group.
With this listing, both the F42 5G and Galaxy A22 5G, Galaxy Buddy and Galaxy Wide 5 models appeared. The interesting thing about this listing is that F42 and A22 have the same code. In other words, the A22 model, which was introduced recently, will be called F42 in other markets.
F42, which will come with a 6.6-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2400 × 108 and a refresh rate of 90 Hz, will feature MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 chipset with affordable 5G modem support. The phone, which will come with 4 GB RAM and 6 GB RAM options, will use a triple setup of 48 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP resolution on the camera side.
On the front surface, an 8 MP selfie camera will welcome us. The phone, which will come out of the box with a 5,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging support and One UI 3.1 based Android 11, is expected to be sold at a price band of 230 Euros.
