Last month, we had exclusively revealed that Samsung is working on two new Galaxy M series smartphones: Galaxy M12s and Galaxy M42. Both smartphones are expected it be launched by the end of this year. The Galaxy M42’s primary camera resolution and internal storage capacity were known. Now, its battery capacity has been revealed.
The Galaxy M42’s (SM-M425F) battery with model number EB-BM425ABY has passed through 3C and DEKRA certification processes. Its capacity is rated at 5,830mAh, and Samsung will most likely market it as a 6,000mAh battery. The same battery also appeared in Indian certification agency BIS’s database, which points towards the possibility of the Galaxy M42 launching in India soon.
It is a common sight these days to see 6,000mAh batteries in Samsung’s mid-range phones. The Galaxy M42 will come with a 64MP primary camera and 128GB of internal storage. Not much else is known about the phone right now, but it could be a watered-down version of the recently launched Galaxy A42 5G.
Even the Galaxy M12, whose renders were leaked yesterday, appears to have drawn its design inspiration from the Galaxy A42 5G. The upcoming smartphone reportedly features a 6.5-inch Infinity-V display, a quad-camera setup on the rear, a side-mounted fingerprint reader, a 7,000mAh battery, a USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack.
