Samsung Galaxy M42 to become the first 5G smartphone in the series

Michail, 11 March 2021

Back in November, we came across several certification listings for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy M42 which confirmed a 6,000 mAh battery. Now the same device bearing the SM-M426B/DS model number was spotted in a Wi-Fi Alliance listing.

The model number in particular is significant as past international versions of 5G Samsung devices have all sported the B/DS marking which means the M42 will also be a 5G phone. Actually, this will be the first 5G member in the Galaxy M series.

The listing itself does not give out any additional spec details for the M42 apart from it having dual-mode Wi-Fi connectivity. We also get confirmation that the phone will boot Android 11 out the box.

It's also smooth on my A52. One UI is also great for midrange A series with SD processor.
