Though many users recognize smartphone brands due to their top-end models or the so-called annual flagships, obviously, those brands design and sell products in other categories as well. In this sense, the Samsung Galaxy S series handsets are what the South Korean company boasts of. But it has less-popular model lines that ship in millions. Among them, we should mention the F series handsets. And the upcoming Samsung Galaxy F42 5G is going to be no exception.
This phone has managed to appear in various leaks before. From them, we learned that under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, 6GB/8GB+128GB storage combination, and a rear 48MP quad-camera. As for now, SamMobile reported that this phone had passed an international organization certification. The latter confirms that it does not support WiFi 6, but supports 5G mobile networks.
The back cover of this phone uses a four-color gradient design, and the cameras are arranged in a square frame. The phone uses a Super AMOLED screen with a 720×1600 resolution. Inside, the phone also carries a relatively-large 5000mAh battery, which supports 15W fast charging. It weighs 193g. the source said that the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G will be very similar to the Galaxy M42 5G previously released internationally. So we can expect a price tag in the ballpark of $300.
