Samsung Launches Its Most Affordable 5G Smartphone

Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy A42 5G, a new mobile device that is the company’s most affordable 5G smartphone to date.

The A42 5G will first go on sale in the United Kingdom with a £349 (some $450) price tag, but there’s a chance it will also hit the shelves in other markets rather sooner than later.

The new phone comes with a 6.6-inch Infinity U display and sports an on-screen fingerprint sensor for easy unlocking. Samsung doesn’t say if it’s an optical or ultrasonic sensor, though at this price level, it’s hard to believe the company would go for the latter.

The A42 5G is powered by a SM 7225 chip paired with 4GB RAM and comes with 128GB built-in storage, while a microSD card slot allows for an expansion to a maximum of 1TB.

In terms of battery, it features a 5,000 mAh unit with 15W fast charging.

Going on sale on November 6

There are three cameras available on the phone, two on the back and one of the front:
