It was revealed a couple of months ago that Samsung is working on a new smartphone that could be launched as the Galaxy F42 5G. It was almost confirmed last month that the smartphone’s specifications could be very similar to the Galaxy A22 5G, given that they both were listed under the same Bluetooth certification entry.
Now, the information related to the Galaxy F42 5G’s processor, RAM, and operating system has been confirmed. According to the smartphone’s (SM-E426B) listing in Geekbench’s database, it runs Android 11 and comes equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor (MT6833V/NZA) and 6GB RAM. The phone scored 559 points in Geekbench 5.4.1’s single-core CPU test and 1,719 points in the multi-core CPU test.
Since the smartphone is based on the Galaxy A22 5G, we expect the Galaxy F42 5G to feature a 6.6-inch TFT LCD Infinity-U display with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. It could sport an 8MP selfie camera and a 48MP+5MP+2MP triple-camera setup at the rear. It could have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor as well.
The phone could have 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, and a microSD card slot. We can expect the upcoming mid-range smartphone to feature GPS, 5G, a dual-SIM card slot, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It could come powered by a 5,000mAh or a 6,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging.
