Samsung has launched dozens of mid-range smartphones over the past year, and it looks like the company is working on another: Galaxy F42 5G. Well, it is not an entirely new device, at least as per the new piece of information. The upcoming smartphone is a rebranded version of an existing Galaxy smartphone that was launched a few weeks ago.

The Galaxy F42 (SM-E426B), which appeared for the first time last month via Wi-Fi certification, has now been found in Bluetooth SIG’s certification database. The Galaxy F42 features Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 5. The device appears to be a rebranded version of the Galaxy A22 5G (SM-A226B). We should also remind you that two more rebranded versions of the Galaxy A22 5G are being worked upon: Galaxy Buddy (SM-A226L) and Galaxy Wide 5 (SM-E426S). Hence, all four phones are listed under the same certification.

Galaxy F42 5G expected specs

The specifications of the Galaxy F42 5G could be largely similar to the Galaxy A22 5G. It could have a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. It could feature a side-mounted fingerprint reader, an 8MP selfie camera, and a 48MP+5MP+2MP triple-camera setup at the rear. The phone could come equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor, 4GB/6GB/8GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot.

Connectivity features of the Galaxy F42 5G could include 5G, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Although the Galaxy A22 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery, we could see either a 6,000mAh or a 7,000mAh battery inside the Galaxy F42 5G. It could run Android 11 out of the box and feature 15W fast charging.
