Samsung didn’t provide an exact release date when it announced the Galaxy A42 5G for Taiwan almost a full month ago but the phone is finally available for purchase and the company is marking the occasion by introducing the 8GB model. Last month Samsung didn’t make any mentions of the Galaxy A42 5G 8GB variant but customers can now buy it in exchange for an additional NT$ 1,000 ($35) on top of the phone’s entry price.
The Galaxy A42 5G equipped with 6GB of RAM costs NT$12,990 ($455) whereas the 8GB variant is priced at NT$13,990 ($490). Each variant is equipped with 128GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via microSD by up to an additional 1TB.
Samsung offers an additional NT$ 1,000 discount and extended warranty
Samsung is now selling the Galaxy A42 5G across numerous physical retail stores and is offering different incentives depending on the location. Prospective buyers looking for a trade-in deal should be buying the Galaxy A42 5G from the Samsung Smart Pavillion where they can enjoy an additional NT$1,000 discount as well as a one-year warranty extension for the Galaxy A42 5G when trading in an older phone.
Buyers who aren’t interested in trading in an older phone may want to buy the Galaxy A42 5G at the Samsung Mall before November 30 for a chance to win a lottery. Regardless of retail channels, the Galaxy A42 5G is available in Taiwan in three color options including black, silver, and white.
