The Galaxy A42 is nowhere near its market debut but this hasn't stopped the steady flow of leaks from creeping in. We previously and exclusively learned that the Galaxy A42 will be 5G-enabled, making it one of 2021's most affordable 5G phones. The phone is also expected to pack a generous 5,000mAh battery in support of 5G, and earlier this month the same device was benchmarked online with a Snapdragon 690 chipset and 4GB of RAM under the hood. Now, our colleagues over at GalaxyClub have obtained some information about the Galaxy A42's camera setup.
The Galaxy A42's back panel will accommodate a 48MP main camera and a 5MP depth sensor, according to new information unearthed by the source. Galaxy A41 owners will let you know that these specifications are familiar because they are indeed unchanged from this year's model. However, details about the ultra-wide camera are missing and there's a possibility that this module will see more significant upgrades. It's also unclear if the Galaxy A42 will have the same 25MP selfie camera as its predecessor or a different sensor.
Samsung's budget-oriented Galaxy A42 is likely to see the light of day in early 2021 so a lot of unknowns about this device remain. Camera upgrades might not be the phone's biggest selling point but what seems to be a certainty is the inclusion of 5G and a complementary large battery that compensates for the higher energy requirements of 5G. Even so, it might not be the most affordable 5G Galaxy phone next year as that label is seemingly reserved for the Galaxy A32.
