Samsung is preparing the Galaxy A42 5G, with a 5000mAh battery and Snapdragon 690 chipset

Framed in the mid-range range, Galaxy A42 will be offered in the 5G version where the 5G communications infrastructure already exists, Samsung also reserving a 4G version for emerging markets where the acquisition cost is higher.

Beyond the 5G mention attached to the product name, the two Galaxy A42 variants will have different specifications and exterior design. Thus, the 5G model is chosen with the Snapdragon 690 chipset and 5000 mAh battery. Instead, the 4G model uses the Snapdragon 765G chipset and could be a slightly slimmer construction, possible by using a smaller capacity battery. In terms of autonomy there should be no differences, Samsung compensating only for the increased power consumption of the 5G modem.

Returning to the 5G version, it uses a chipset with an 8nm manufacturing process and supports 5G networks in the mmWave band (the fastest). Also published in the Geekbench catalog, the smartphone gets a score of 1799 points in the multi-core test and 615 points in the single-core test.

The list of features is completed with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, screen with 120Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi 6 technology and Bluetooth 5.1.

Also published in the catalog of the South Korean authority responsible for certifying wireless communications equipment, the representative of the mid-range offer of Samsung 5G phones is expected to have its official debut at the beginning of next year. According to estimates, Samsung will keep the Android 10 version and the amount of 128GB internal memory in the basic equipment. Galaxy A42 5G will be available in gray, black and white, and can be ordered from most regions where there is 5G coverage.
