Samsung Galaxy M42 5G Specifications, Price, and Release Date

Samsung Galaxy M42 5G Summary

In India, the Galaxy M42 5G is the first smartphone in Samsung's M series to enable 5G. It boasts a large 6.6-inch HD+ display with a notch and a polycarbonate rear panel. At this price, the HD+ resolution is significant decrease. The Samsung Galaxy M42 5G features a 5,000mAh battery and 15W quick charging, which is slower than the competitors. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset and comes in two models with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On top of Android 11, the Galaxy M42 5G runs OneUI 3.1. Although the 5,000mAh battery provided excellent battery life, charging at 15W was slow. During the daytime, Samsung's quad-camera performed admirably, with realistic colors. Close-ups were also clear and detailed. Low-light shots were average, but Night mode improved. With an HD+ display on the Galaxy M42 5G, Samsung has cut corners, and you'd be better off shopping for alternative options at this price.
