Samsung Galaxy M42 could bring 5G connectivity and 6000mAh battery, suggests leak

The Galaxy M42 listing on Wi-Fi Alliance reveals possibility of Samsung bringing 5G connectivity to the M series devices.  Here’s our report.

Samsung Galaxy F62

Samsung Galaxy F62 is listed at Rs 17,999 for the 6GB RAM model on the Flipkart Electronics Sale page. Exchange offer of up to Rs 14,600, 12 percent instant discount on HDFC Bank cards, and no-cost EMI options are available as well. The phone features a 6.7-inch FHD+ display, 64-megapixel quad-camera array, up to 8GB RAM, Exynos 9825 SoC, a huge 7,000mAh battery.


With the Galaxy S21 series already out of the launch stage, Samsung is now busy renovating its midrange A, F and M series devices. The Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 are expected to launch next but Samsung is also working on a new M series device. This one is expected to be called the Galaxy M42 and based on a Wi-Fi Alliance listing, it seems this phone will support 5G connectivity. A bigger battery is also a part of the package.

The Galaxy M42 carries a code name similar to those of its 5G devices. The listing does not reveal the chipset of choice but it does reveal a massive 6000mAh battery. This phone will also launch with Android 11 as its base operating system onboard. There’s also confirmation of a dual-band Wi-Fi system, which is a common feature in mid-range smartphones.

Galaxy M42 listing suggests a 5G midrange device

As of now, there isn’t much known about the Galaxy M42. Given that Samsung usually shares its parts bin among A, F and M series phones, the Galaxy M41 might be a derivative of the upcoming Galaxy A52. That means we could expect a 90Hz AMOLED display, a 64-megapixel quad rear camera setup, and a massive 6000mAh battery (the last one appears on the listing).

If the Galaxy M42 ends up with support for 5G connectivity, Samsung could end up using either a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chip or a Snapdragon 750G chip in the M41. This could put it up against the likes of the Moto G 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10i, and Realme X7 in markets like India.

Samsung, however, is still sticking to 4G-based devices for India where 5G is still a few years away. The recently launched Galaxy F62 midrange phone is using an older Exynos chip last used in the Galaxy Note 10. The Galaxy F62 also makes use of a 6.7-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a 64-megapixel quad-rear camera setup, a 7000mAh battery, and a 32-megapixel selfie camera.

On the other hand, the Galaxy A32 4G that launched in India recently relies on a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. Samsung has, however, given it a 90Hz 6.4-inch display, a 5000mAh battery, and a 64-megapixel quad rear camera. The Galaxy A32 4G starts at Rs 21,999 in India.
