IFA 2020, like any major tech event worthy of the name, begins for practical purposes before its official opening and we have already seen some new things in its environment. And although this year Samsung has gone parallel (and virtually) to that, after the full presentation of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, today they present another new mobile with 5G: the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G.

As its name suggests, this is a smartphone that is not placed in the first line of the manufacturer, but in a series focused on the mid-range and the entry-level. The one that inherits the witness from the Samsung Galaxy A41 integrates a larger screen of AMOLED technology and a modem that allows the support of this connectivity, being the cheapest of the brand supporting 5G.

It’s a mobile with four rear cameras which has a design quite different from the one we saw in the A41 and which inherits directly from the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, because of its square module in a corner and its finish with a kind of engraving. We see in the images that a kind of cliché is drawn on the back, under the camera, and that the edges are curved as we usually see in the brand’s mobiles, without seeing the fingerprint reader.

A panel that leaves the 6.1 inches of the Galaxy A41 behind to switch to 6.6 inch with FullHD resolution, crowned by a entailler for the subjective camera and with the traditional chin formed by thickening the lower frame.
