Samsung Releases Mid-Range 5G Phone

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A42 5G, the latest in its lineup of more reasonably priced and lower-specced A-series phones.


The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is the latest mid-range smartphone offered by the Korean tech giant. With a Snapdragon 750G, It’s said to be a step up from the Snapdragon 730G, seen in phones like the Pixel 4A, but it isn’t quite as powerful as the Snapdragon 765G, seen in the Pixel 4A 5G and OnePlus Nord.

The A42 is now Samsung’s cheapest phone with 5G, selling for about 45,000ksh. The phone has a 6.6-inch OLED display with a teardrop cutout for a 20 megapixel camera at the top, 4GB to 8GB of RAM depending on the model, 128GB of storage expandable by MicroSD, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor built into the screen. On the back, there are four cameras: a 48 megapixel wide, 8 megapixel ultrawide, a 5 megapixel macro, and a 5 megapixel depth sensor for creating portrait effects.

It comes in three colors — black, gray, and white — each with a dense grid pattern on the back that darkens in stages as it rises up the phone.
