Back in 2019, Samsung launched the Galaxy M-series devices for the first in India. If we go by the company’s past launches we see the Galaxy M-series lineup is mainly targeted at the Asian and European markets. Usually, the M-series consist of devices that offer some excellent specs at a decent price. The first 5G device to launch in the Galaxy M-lineup could be the Samsung Galaxy M42.
The model number, in particular, is significant as past international versions of 5G Samsung devices have all sported the B/DS marking which means the M42 will also be a 5G phone. The evidence of the Samsung Galaxy M42 is revealed by the Wi-Fi Alliance certification, which suggests that the device will most likely be just the rebranded Galaxy A42 5G.
The Samsung Galaxy M42 specifications and features
The Galaxy M42 will also mostly retain similar specs as that of the Galaxy A42 5G. It features a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED display and powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 750 5G SoC, which is aided with 4/6/8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G runs Android 10 out of the box and is promised to get an Android 11 update. It sports a 48MP quad-camera setup and has a 20MP front-facing camera. The previous leak suggests that Samsung Galaxy M42 might feature a 64MP camera setup at the back. The device could pack in a 6000mAh, as it was revealed by 3C certification last year.
