We have all seen a time when Samsung is considered to be a costly phone in terms of smartphones. However, in the last five years, the scenario of Samsung mobile phones changed dramatically when they started launching the budget smartphones.
The M series of Samsung plays a significant role in user engagement and building the Samsung market. All the models of the M series are very affordable to buy for Indians with high performance and lots of features.
This time also, Samsung carried the diamond, Galaxy M42, in the M series to jam the mobile market. The announcement of Galaxy M42 was revealed a few weeks ago; however, there was no mention related to the launching date. Now the date is declared, and the Samsung M42 will be launched in India on the upcoming April 28, 2021.
The Amazon teaser has released the few specifications of Galaxy M42. The launching event will be scheduled virtually due to the increasing number of Covid cases at sharp 12 noon and streamed live on Youtube and many other selected social media platforms that we will be known later.
Some days earlier, we were predicting which chipset will be used in Galaxy M42, but now we know. Here are some configurations released by the company.
Configuration of Galaxy M42
The full-featured pack device will be powered by a 750G Snapdragon processor and have a Qualcomm chipset. Interestingly, only two smartphones are available in India with a similar Snapdragon chipset – Xiaomi Mi 10i and Moto G 5G.
The 750G Snapdragon is an Octa-core processor and has a 2.2 GHz prime clock speed. The processor chipset is built on just an 8 Nanometer fabrication, and the Adreno 619 GPU is taking care of graphics. Moreover, this 750G chipset is also useful for 5G network support as it is a 5G approved chipset and uses X52 5G Qualcomm for 5G network connectivity.
If we talk about recent timings then, Galaxy M42 is the second model followed by Galaxy M51 with the support of Snapdragon chipset. Galaxy M51 was launched last September 2020 with this chipset, and the performance at that time was one of the best.
As per the teaser by Amazon, the Galaxy M42 will come with many additional security features like – A secure folder that is like private mode and can be run by double click on the power button, and AltZ will be offered two amazing features named Content suggestions and Quick switch.
Besides all these functionalities, the Galaxy M42 will come in the pack of giant 6000 mAh battery backup and with a Full High Definition Plus display. The body layout design and look are quite similar to Galaxy F62 from the back.
As far as the price of the budget smartphone is concerned, the Galaxy M42 is expected to be available in the market with a pricing tag of around 25000 INR.
