Samsung has finally launched the Galaxy M-series' inaugural 5G phone, the M42. Unsurprisingly, this device is a rebrand of the pre-existing A42 that is directed at the European market. Its new incarnation has not changed in terms of specs, which means its up-to-date connectivity is still explained by the Snapdragon 750G processor.

It still also has its 48+5+2+2MP rear cameras, as well as its slightly underwhelming HD+ screen. Nevertheless, Samsung touts its AMOLED panel and 6.6-inch dimensions as selling points, as it does the A/M42's distinctive banded rear panel.

On the other hand, the OEM does offer the Galaxy M42 in its 8GB RAM flavor, even though it has 4 or 6GB alternatives in A42 form. This pushes it toward the mid-range bracket at a price of INR 19,999 (~US$268), which comes into effect on its May 1, 2021 release and may be subject to change thereafter.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
