Yesterday, Samsung pulled an LG and half-announced a new device, in this case the Galaxy A42 5G. Given the naming scheme here, this is expected to be Samsung's most affordable 5G device ever, taking that crown from the Galaxy A51 5G. And yet, yesterday's press release didn't give us that all-important detail: the price.
Not to worry, though, for in the meantime, Samsung's German arm has rectified this issue. It turns out that the Galaxy A42 5G will become available in Europe in November for €369, in black, white, and grey.
The phone has a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U touchscreen with a waterdrop notch, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a quad rear camera setup. The main shooter is a 48 MP sensor, there's also an 8 MP ultrawide next to it, as well as a 5 MP macro camera and a 5 MP depth sensor. On the front, you get a 20 MP selfie snapper with autofocus.

I don't think so. Nothing to regret.
