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.
