Samsung Galaxy A42 with 5G Support Tipped for 2021 Launch

It is possible that the Galaxy A42 is never launched in India since the A41 never came here aswell.


5G is currently the talk of the day amongst many smartphone makers. As the world moves to the next generation of mobile networks, OEMs are trying to make the cheapest devices that support 5G. Currently, the title is reserved for Honor, Xiaomi, and Realme all of whom have some of the cheapest 5G-enabled devices. Now Samsung also is reportedly planning to enter the affordable 5G market with a new device under its Galaxy A-series. Already in the global markets, there are 5G-versions of the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 but Samsung is looking further down the line with the upcoming Galaxy A42 5G.

As per an exclusive report by Sammobile, a device with the model number SM-A426B is currently being developed as a 5G phone for 2021. The report states that there is no evidence of the phone supporting LTE which leads to the belief that the Galaxy A42 will likely have 5G. In other regions, such as India Samsung will likely release a 4G-only version.

It is still very early to predict the possible specs of the design elements of the device. The report states that the phone could likely have 128GB of internal storage which is an upgrade from the Galaxy A41’s 64GB option only. In terms of colour options, the report mentions that the Galaxy A42 5G will come in gray, black, and white colors. It could also be possible that in the near future Samsung will make only 5G-enabled devices in its Galaxy A-series, S-series, and Note-series.

The Galaxy A41 has not been announced in India as of right now and it seems unlikely that the Galaxy A42 will make any entrance in the country’s market. What do you think about the Galaxy A42 5G? Do you want to see it in the Indian market? Let us know in the comments below.
