Samsung enters the mid-price range with a new 5G economic smartphone: the Galaxy A42 with super battery
Samsung is working on a new 5G economic smartphone: the Galaxy A42. The South Korean company is ready to launch itself in this new sector, where competition is beginning to be numerous and more and more manufacturers are planning to invest with cutting-edge devices. The credit is also due to the companies that produce processors that have begun to launch SoCs with 5G modems very cheap.
On the Galaxy A42 5G leaked nine information regarding the battery. Samsung would plan to include a battery of as much as 5000mAh, which would make the smartphone an excellent battery-phone that ensures a range that allows you to get through the day without too much trouble. On board there will probably be a chipset made by Qualcomm (perhaps the Snapdragon 690), with to support 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.
Galaxy A42 5G, the characteristics
The smartphone circulates on certification sites with the model number SM-A426B, which refers to the expected Galaxy A42 5G. At the moment there are no details on the processor, which could be a mid-range Qualcomm designed precisely for low-cost 5G smartphones to be placed on the market. The internal storage space would be 128 GB, while for the battery has been indicated the code EB-BA426ABY, which indicates a nominal capacity of 4860 mAh, so it is a 5000 mAh battery. Samsung's new smartphone will be available in gray, black and white colors.
If the Galaxy A42 will follow in the footsteps of the previous model, it could have a display of at least 6 inches, but the presence of a super battery raises doubts about the compactness and size. The Galaxy A41 series are in fact compact, but are equipped with batteries up to 3500 mAh. The presence of a super battery could also imply a larger size for Galaxy A42.
Galaxy A42, launch date and price
There is no launch date for Galaxy A42 yet, but after the first rumors in June, it is believed that it could be unveiled by the end of 2020, or in early 2021. As for the price, the only certainty is that it will rank among the mid-range 5G smartphones and if it follows that of its predecessor Galaxy A41, it could be brought to market at a cost of around 250 euros.
