The Samsung Galaxy M42 5G has reportedly been spotted on the NFC certification website and is expected to be launched soon in India. The phone could be the first Galaxy M series phone with 5G connectivity.
The phone has been spotted on various certification websites and recently, the support page believed to be for the Galaxy M42 came into effect on the Samsung India website. As of now, Samsung itself has not shared any information on the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy M42 has been in the news for many now and is expected to be the first Galaxy M series supported by 5G. The call has already appeared on the NFC certification website, suggesting it will come with NFC support.
The certificate lists the odel number SM-M426B / DS, believed to be the Galaxy M42 where the DS represents dual-SIM.
The listing was first spotted by tipster with the pseudonym Tech Blooger on Twitter and was independently verified by Gadget 360.
Towards the end of March, the support page went live on Samsung India’s website with the same model number. While the support page did not disclose any other information other than India’s imminent launch, the Galaxy M42 allegedly managed to obtain many pre-launch certificates in the past.
It was reported on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, as well as the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG certification websites last month. The 3C certificate list for the same model number from November last year suggested that the Galaxy M42 will come with a 6,000mAh battery.
At the time, it was believed that the phone could also be the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G launched in September 2020.
It should be noted that Samsung has not shared any information about the rumored Galaxy M42 5G so this information should be taken with a little salt.
