Without further ado, let’s dive deeper as we explore the full features, specifications and the latest price of the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G in Nigeria.
Samsung Galaxy A42 5G Features
The Samsung Galaxy A42 has a large 6.6-inch Super AMOLED screen. The screen edges are narrow so that the front consists largely of the screen. Thanks to AMOLED, colours are vibrant and splash off the display. This way you can optimally enjoy your favourite Netflix series or a game.
When it comes to photography, you have plenty of options with the Samsung A42. This is how you take your normal, sharp photos and videos with the primary 48-megapixel camera. And for large landscapes or group photos, use the 8-megapixel camera with ultra-wide-angle lens. This lens has a wider viewing angle.
With the 5-megapixel camera with a depth sensor, you can take beautiful portrait photos with a depth of field effect. This keeps your subject sharp while the background blurs. And to take sharp close-ups of plants and small animals, use the 5-megapixel camera with the macro lens.
The Galaxy A42 has a large 5000mAh battery and supports Samsung Fast Charging. You don’t have to worry about an empty battery and slow charging. Fast charging is possible with a maximum power of 15W so that you quickly have a full battery again.
A handy feature of the Samsung Galaxy A42 is dual-sim. This means that you can insert two SIM cards at the same time. So you have one phone in your pocket and can be reached on two numbers. You cannot insert a memory card when using a second SIM card.
Samsung has provided the Galaxy A42 5G with 128GB of storage capacity for apps, games, photos and videos. The operating system takes up a small part of this. If there is not enough storage space, you can expand the memory with a microSD card. You cannot then insert a second SIM card.
