Samsung Galaxy M42 is going to be the first 5G device in the series
The Samsung Galaxy M42 was spotted on several listings back in November last year. Those listings had revealed some of the specs on the upcoming M series smartphone, including the fact that it was going to come with a 6,000mAh battery.
Now, the same smartphone, with the model number SM-M426B/DS has been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website, according to GSMArena reports.
The model number that’s been spotted is particularly important. All past international versions of 5G Samsung devices have all come with the B/DS marking. So, this indicates that the Galaxy M42 is also going to be a 5G device. This makes the Galaxy M42 the first 5G device in the Galaxy M series.
The listing on Wi-Fi alliance does not reveal any other specification for the Galaxy M42 except that it comes with dual-mode Wi-Fi connectivity. There is also confirmation that the smartphone is going to run Android 11 out-of-the-box.
Older listings have revealed that the Galaxy M42 is going to come with a 64-megapixel primary sensor on the back, and a 128GB built-in storage. According to reports, Samsung Galaxy M42 is going to be a stripped-down version of the Galaxy A42 5G.
There is no information about when the smartphone is expected to launch though.
