Samsung Galaxy M52 5G and Galaxy F42 5G are slated for launch in India in September. The two phones have had some leaks in the past and it was said in May that the Galaxy M52 5G could be a rebranded Samsung Galaxy F52 5G. The two phones will succeed their predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy M51 and Galaxy F41, which came onto the market last year. So far, Samsung has not shared any official information about the two phones.
Samsung appears to be working on a Galaxy M-series and a Galaxy F-series phone. The Galaxy M52 5G has been in the news for a while and is said to be a rebranded Samsung Galaxy F52 5G, which launched in May of this year. The rumored Galaxy F42 5G, on the other hand, is more of a mystery, as very few details about this phone have emerged so far. Well-known tipster Debayan Roy (@Gadgetsdata) announced on Twitter that both the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G and the Galaxy F42 5G will hit the market in India next month.
The tipster stated that the Galaxy M52 5G will be presented at the end of September and the Galaxy F42 5G before that, but in the same month. The two models will expand Samsung’s mid-range range of 5G smartphones.
As for the specs, the Galaxy M52 5G was recently spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, indicating an imminent launch in India, as reported by MySmartPrice. It was also recommended to come with a triple rear camera with a 64-megapixel ISOCELL-GW3 primary sensor, a 12-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel macro shooter. On the front, the phone is said to be equipped with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. An alleged Geekbench listing for the Galaxy M52 5G indicated a Snapdragon 778G SoC and 6 GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy F42 5G, on the other hand, was also reportedly spotted on a Geekbench list last month, which pointed to 6 GB of RAM and a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. In the previous month, it was also reportedly discovered on the Bluetooth SIG and BIS websites. The Galaxy F42 5G could be a rebranded Samsung Galaxy A22 5G that launched in June of this year.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung has not shared any information on the two alleged phones, so this information should be viewed with caution.
