In addition to confirming the launch date, the microsite also confirms the design and new features of the upcoming smartphone from Samsung’s stable.

In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy F42 5G is expected to be launched with an FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The screen size is yet to be revealed by the teasers. However, previous leaks hint at a 6.6-inch LCD display. On the hardware front, the Samsung Galaxy F series smartphone in the pipeline could be launched with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space with a microSD card slot for additional storage space.

The microsite goes on hinting at the presence of a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, support for 12 5G bands, a triple-camera setup at the rear with a 64MP primary sensor, a 5MP secondary ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP tertiary depth sensor.
