The Samsung Galaxy M42 5G and Samsung Galaxy A42 5G were reportedly spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, suggesting an imminent launch in India. The Galaxy M42 5G has not yet been launched and there have been some rumors about the smartphone. However, the Galaxy A42 5G was launched in the US last September. It should be noted that Samsung has not disclosed any information about the launch of the Galaxy M42 5G or Galaxy A42 5G in India.
According to a report by MySmartPrice, both the rumored Samsung Galaxy M42 5G and Galaxy A42 5G were discovered on the BIS website. The list does not include technical specifications for the two phones or details on the subject other than model numbers and dual SIM support. The Samsung Galaxy M42 5G is said to be listed with the model number SM-M426B / DS, while the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G may come with the model number SM-A426B / DS.
Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy M42 5G was spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG certification websites, suggesting the phone could be a rebranded Galaxy A42 5G. It was discovered on the 3C certification website back in November 2020. The Galaxy M42 5G could be the first Galaxy M-series phone to feature 5G when it is launched in India.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G was launched in select regions last September. At the time, the company did not disclose pricing or specifications for the phone. Then, about a month later, its specifications and prices were announced. The phone has a 6.6-inch HD + Super AMOLED display and is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. It includes a quad rear camera with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel macro shooter. The Galaxy A42 5G is powered by a 5,000mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging.
