Samsung is expected to further expand its 5G smartphone portfolio in the future, launching the cheaper Galaxy A42 model. As the name suggests, this will be a member of Samsung’s 2021 midrange Galaxy A device and a successor to the 4G LTE Galaxy A41. Samsung’s Galaxy A42 is expected to have 4G and 5G versions, the latter model sM-A426B, 128GB of internal storage, up from 64G storage on the 2020 Galaxy A41.
Unfortunately, all other Galaxy A42 5G specs remain in the secret for the time being, and we don’t know if the phone will be released in the U.S. Samsung’s previously released Galaxy A71 5G is already available in the US and is recommended to cost $600, knowing that the 5G-enabled A51 model will be available later this summer for no more than $500. But the Galaxy A41 for 4G LTE is nowhere to be found in north America, raising fears that next year’s A42 5G will do the same.
If the mysterious mid-range machine is finally officially launched in the US, it seems certain that it will cost around $400, or even lower, and will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to the big increase in sales of 5G smartphones.
