Announcement. Samsung Galaxy M42 5G - Indian copy of Galaxy A42

In India (hussars, not a word about COVID-19!) Samsung Galaxy M42 5G smartphone announced. As expected, this is a copy of the global smartphone Samsung Galaxy A42 5G, announced last fall (not officially sold in Russia, but you can find it if you wish). As the name suggests, this is a 5G smartphone.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chipset is a typical middle class, under four hundred thousand points in AnTuTu9.

Memory problems are not expected. 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage. Support for memory cards is available.

You will have to assign a screen to the role of the weak link -there is no one else. Super AMOLED + matrix, large diagonal, 6.6 ″. But the resolution is small, only 720 × 1600 (266 ppi). And there is no question of any increased refresh rate of the screen either.

The battery is capacious, 5000 mAh. Charging is fast, but not too fast at 15W.

Cameras are a standard set.Front camera with a resolution of 20 MP. Behind the quartet of 48 + 8 + 5 + 5 MP - the main camera, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor. There are no examples of pictures taken with the Galaxy M42 yet. And how the twin A42 takes pictures, you can see, for example, in these reviews - one, two.

There is an NFC module, as well as a gyroscope. Wi-Fi dual band fifth. USB is correct, Type-C. A fingerprint scanner is built into the screen.

And about money. ₹ 19,999 (₽20,100, $ 268) for the younger version 6 + 128 GB and ₹ 21,999 (₽22100, $ 295) for 8 + 128 GB.
