Samsung to launch Galaxy Wide5 in South Korea, and the same phone as Galaxy F42 5G in India

It seems like Samsung is on a streak to launch new smartphones every few weeks. This time, the company is expected to launch the Galaxy Wide5 smartphone which would be a budget 5G smartphone from the company. The same smartphone is also expected to launch in the Indian market with the rebranded name of Galaxy F42 5G. The smartphone has already been reported on the GeekBench listing which gives us a good idea about the smartphone specification. 

The phone has scored 558 single-core points and 1513 multi-core points. It scored this while running on the Android 11 operating system. The listing reveals that the phone will be powered using the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC, which is a 5G compatible chipset. The listing also makes clear that the phone, although a budget 5G smartphone, will have at least 6GB of RAM for faster performance. It will use the Infinity V display from Samsung and will have FHD+ resolution. 

However, do not expect an in-display fingerprint on this one as it will be mounted on the side of the power button. The Indian version of the smartphone Galaxy F42 5G, was recently listed on the Google Play Console, which indicates that the phone might be launched by the end of this month. Since both the smartphone listings have similar model numbers, it can be confirmed that both will be the same handset but with different names. While the Wide5 will be launched in South Korea, the F42 5G will be released in the Indian market.
