We were expecting, but Qualcomm decided to surprise everyone today with a brand new chipset dubbed Snapdragon 750G. One of the biggest surprises is that this premium mid-range oriented chipset also boasts 5G connectivity. So, this is the second chipset in the SD7xx family to come with seamless support for the fifth-gen networks. We’re not taking into account the Snapdragon 768G that basically is an overclocked SD765G.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A42 5G earlier this month, however, the company was shy to say the name of the chipset giving power and 5G capabilities for this handset. We were even assuming that as a new mid-range the device was powered by the Snapdragon 690 5G. Now, it’s revealed, the handset is one of the first devices to arrive in the market with Qualcomm’s brand new chipset. According to a report from GSMArena, the source code of Galaxy A42 5G’s benchmark reveals that it’s running Qualcomm’s latest SD750G platform.
Moving on to the specifications of the device, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A42 5G; will flaunt a large 6.6-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch on the front to house the front selfie camera. While Samsung has not put out the resolution, pixel density, and other specifications regarding the display; but we do expect it to be an FHD+ panel.
On the rear, The Samsung Galaxy A42 5G packs in a quad-rear camera setup with a squircle camera module, and the exact details of the camera sensors are still unknown, at least for now. The certification information had earlier revealed the appearance of a 5000mAh battery with fast charging support.
