Galaxy A42 5G is now live in Thailand bringing 5G support for under $400


Last updated: November 13th, 2020 at 18:51 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s most affordable 5G smartphone to date, the Galaxy A42 5G, is now available in Thailand. Unlike in Taiwan where the same device was announced exclusively with 4GB of RAM a couple of weeks ago, Samsung Thailand is bringing customers the top-tier 8GB Galaxy A42 5G model. The phone is available in three color options including black, silver, and white.

Samsung fans in Thailand can now pick up the Galaxy A42 5G via Samsung’s online store in exchange for 11,990 Baht ($397). The 4GB and 6GB models are not yet listed on the store and Samsung’s launch announcement makes no mention of them, though they might be offered in Thailand later down the line. For now, customers can only choose the most powerful variant, unlike buyers in other markets where the the least-powerful model is paving the way for the others.

3700 Mbps download speeds on a budget

The Galaxy A42 5G is technically capable of achieving download speeds of up to 3700 Mbps over 5G, although in the real world, transfer rates will differ depending on the carrier network you’re using and other factors. Either way, the Galaxy A42 5G remains the most affordable entry into the 5G era for Samsung fans.

The smartphone is equipped with the Snapdragon 750G chipset and it’s powered by a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support. The back panel features a quad camera combo comprising a 48MP main shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with 123-degrees field of view, a 5MP depth camera and a 5MP macro sensor.
