Galaxy A42 is bringing 5G to the Netherlands for under 350 euro

Another budget-oriented 5G smartphone that was unveiled by Samsung recently is the Galaxy A42 5G. Unlike the Galaxy S20 FE, the Galaxy A42 is a pure 5G device meaning there are no LTE variants to be found anywhere in the world.

The phone will be sold with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage expandable by up to 1TB via microSD. Samsung claims the Galaxy A42 5G will be available in the Netherlands from October 30 for the price of 349 euro including VAT. This is Samsung’s most affordable 5G-enabled smartphone to date and you’d be hard-pressed to find a cheaper 5G phone on the market.
