Samsung is doing well in the smartphone market thanks to budget and mid-budget models, which have changed a lot over the past couple of years.
More affordable 5G phones: Samsung is working on the Galaxy A32 5G
In the near future, the Galaxy A lineup will have another important change – support for 5G. Sources say Samsung is working on low-cost Galaxy A42 5G and A32 5G models with support for fifth-generation networks. Whether the same models will be available in 4G-only versions is unclear.
But the Galaxy A32 could be Samsung’s most affordable 5G smartphone. For example, Galaxy A31 now costs $220.
The source claims that the Galaxy A32 5G will receive a main 48-megapixel camera. That is, the photo quality should be quite normal for the negotiated price range.
Samsung Galaxy A42 5G gets 3C certified in China
Samsung is betting big on the Galaxy A series. The S Korean giant seems to be speeding up the development of the Galaxy A42 5G. A recent leak has showcased the possible battery capacity of the device and it looks like the device will be a huge upgrade over its predecessor.
Gizchina News of the week
The battery in question has been spotted on China’s 3C certification website. The model number of the device’s battery is EB-BA426ABY and is 4,860mAh in capacity. This goes in line with the device’s model number i.e., the SM-A426B. Hence, this battery, which was spotted on 3C by folks over at Galaxyclub, could be the one backing up the upcoming Galaxy A42 5G.
The database further reveals that the battery is rated for 3.86V typical. It has a charging limit voltage is 4.43V. This makes us wonder if the battery on the device indeed will support a higher voltage of 9V for fast charging but we will have to wait further on that.
The Galaxy A42 is a relatively new device. A few weeks back, Sammobile had reported that the device will also come with a 5G tag on it meaning Samsung will be moving entirely to 5G on the A series going forward. This is understandable considering the Galaxy A51 was the best selling smartphone in the entire world in Q1 2020.
Coming back, the Galaxy A42’s battery is a serious 70% upgrade over the recently launched Galaxy A41. It had a meagre 3,500mAh battery. The reason could be the company’s alternative route to cope up for the battery drain issues due to the 5G connectivity.
