The Galaxy F42 5G
Next week will be a busy one for Samsung as the Korean Congress announces new smartphones in India – the Galaxy M52 5G and Galaxy F42 5G. The plant will be introduced on September 28, and later on September 29.
The revelation came from the Indian online retailer Flipkart, which has set up a promo page for its Galaxy F42 5G on its website, revealing the smartphone design and key specs.
The Galaxy F42 5G has been rumored to be a bad guy, the Galaxy A22 5G, but apparently, it won’t be the full rubber of the A22 5G since it has a textured pattern on the back cover and the camera looks different to the island.
The camera module, including three shooters, is the bottom line of the 64MP unit, unlike the A22 5G which comes with a 48MP primary camera. Two circles can house ultra-wide and dual-sensor units.
On the front, we have a 90Hz FullHD + display for a selfie camera with a waterdrop notch, but Flipkart doesn’t offer us a screenshot or camera solution.
The Galaxy F42 5G will pack a 5,000 mAh battery and support up to 12 5G bands. The images also confirm the presence of a fingerprint reader, USB-C port, and 3.5mm headphone jack installed on the side.
The Flipkart listing doesn’t talk about the F42 5G processor, but thanks to Geekbench, we know it will come with Dimensity 700 SoC, Android 11, and 6GB of RAM. However, there may be RAM or RAM options to choose from as well.
