Samsung Galaxy F42 5G moves a step closer to launch as it gets Wi-Fi certified
Samsung introduced the Galaxy F52 5G a few days ago, and it will soon introduce the Galaxy F42 5G, which is certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, moving it one step closer to launch.
The Galaxy F42 5G’s Wi-Fi Alliance list does not include its key specifications, but the certifying authority confirms that the smartphone, sports model code SM-E426B / DS, supports 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity. However, this is hardly a surprise as dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity is not uncommon in modern smartphones.
That said, if rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy F42 5G will not be a brand new smartphone. Instead, it will be a rebadged Galaxy M42 5G that was announced last month. And if true, it comes with a Snapdragon 750G SoC, 6.6 “HD + Super AMOLED screen, on-screen fingerprint reader and 5,000 mAh battery with 15W charging.
