The Galaxy A42 5G is the latest 5G-enabled smartphone from Samsung. It also happens to be the cheapest option on offer from the company that supports the next-gen network standard. When the handset was announced, Samsung said that the Galaxy A42 5G would be released in select markets starting November.

It's gradually confirming the price and release date for the Galaxy A42 5G now. The latest confirmation is for the United Kingdom where the handset will be made available early next month.

Galaxy A42 5G price and release date

Samsung confirmed today that the Galaxy A42 5G is going to be available in the United Kingdom from November 6. It's priced at £349. In case you were wondering, it's a full £80 cheaper than the Galaxy A51 5G.

This makes the Galaxy A42 5G the cheapest 5G smartphone that Samsung has released in 2020. It's far from the only one. Both the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 have their own 5G variants. The entire flagship lineup for 2020 also supports the network standard.

The Galaxy A42 5G is a bona fide mid-range smartphone. It features a 6.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, a Snapdragon 750G processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. There's also a quad-camera setup at the back which includes a 48-megapixel primary, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel depth and 5-megapixel macro camera. Other specs include a 20-megapixel selfie camera, 15W adaptive fast charging, 5,000mAh battery and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Customers in the United Kingdom will be able to purchase the Galaxy A42 5G in Prism Dot Black, White and Gray colors when it launches next month.
