Samsung has unveiled a new ”F” series smartphone known as the Galaxy F42 5G in the Indian market today. Despite sporting a new moniker, it is essentially the same device which recently lands in the South Korean market under the Galaxy Wide5 moniker. ‘=
Starting with the frontside, the Galaxy F42 5G features a 6.6” IPS LCD display that offers a FHD+ screen resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, as well as V-shaped notch that houses an 8 megapixels selfie camera.
On the rear side of the phone, it has a square-shape camera module which kind of reminds us of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite (Review). The three cameras at the back include a 64 megapixels main camera, 5 megapixels ultra-wide lens, as well as a 2 megapixels depth sensor.
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset which is coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card.
Keeping it’s lights on is a gigantic 5,000mAh battery that comes with support for 15W fast-charging. Other than that, it also worth noting that the phone features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as One UI Core 3.1 (based on Android 11 OS).
For those who’re interested, the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G is priced at INR20,999 (US$282) and INR22,999 (US$310) for it’s 6GB+128GB and 8GB+128GB models.
