This could be the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G


Samsung is relentlessly expanding its smartphone lineup and is due to unveil the Galaxy F42 5G soon. But once again, the company will not bother creating a model from scratch, but will take as a basis the smartphone, the announcement of which took place a few weeks ago.

Galaxy F42 (SM-E426B) has already received Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG certifications, which made it clear that the new product will receive support for Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. And it is very likely that the device will be just a slightly modified version of the Galaxy A22 5G. The company has made it a rule to offer the same gadget in different markets with different names.

If so, then the Galaxy F42 5G will offer a 6.6-inch FullHD + IPS screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, a fingerprint scanner at the end, an 8-megapixel selfie camera and a Dimensity 700 chipset. The smartphone should have 4/6 / 8 GB of RAM, a flash drive of 64/128 GB and a triple rear camera 48 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP.

But there may be differences. For example, the Galaxy F42 5G can offer a 6000 mAh battery or even a 7000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy A22 5G has a 5000 mAh battery. They promise charging with a power of only 15 W and the Android 11 operating system with the proprietary One UI user interface.

As a reminder, here are the full specs of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G smartphone.
