The Galaxy F42 5G’s Wi-Fi Alliance listing doesn’t include its key specs, but the certifying authority does confirm that the smartphone, sporting model code SM-E426B/DS, will support 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity. That’s hardly a surprise, though, since dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity isn’t uncommon in modern-day smartphones.
That said, if rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy F42 5G won’t be an entirely new smartphone. Instead, it will be a rebadged Galaxy M42 5G announced last month. And if that’s true, it will come with a Snapdragon 750G SoC, 6.6″ HD+ Super AMOLED screen, in-display fingerprint reader, and 5,000 mAh battery with 15W charging.
The smartphone will run Android 11-based One UI 3.1 out of the box and have a total of five cameras onboard – a 20MP selfie shooter inside the notch, with the 48MP primary camera on the rear joined by 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 5MP depth units.
