We have known for a few months that Samsung will soon launch a new affordable 5G smartphone. Subsequent reports revealed that the device would be called the Galaxy A42 5G. Samsung already unveiled the device last month but it didn’t provide all details about the device’s specs.
Samsung has now put out a new infographic that reveals everything there is to know about the Galaxy A42 5G specs. The company has previously confirmed that the Galaxy A42 5G is going to be released in select markets across the globe in November.
