Available through Globe and Smart

To recap, it is available through Globe's ThePLAN 1799 until December 12. Samsung shared that it has an SRP of PHP 19,990. For Smart, you can get it monthly through the Smart Signature Postpaid Plan M until December 10.

Samsung shared that those who will get this device from both carriers will get a FREE UV sterilizer worth PHP 2199.

To recall, the Galaxy A42 5G is currently Samsung's most affordable 5G-ready smartphone. To make 5G possible on this handset, the company equipped it with a 2.2GHz 8nm Snapdragon 750G octa-core processor with a 5G modem.

For the rest of the specs, the handset looks decent overall. It is packed with 6GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 expandable storage, 5,000mAh large battery capacity with 15W USB-C charging, 48MP quad-cam, and 20MP selfie cam. It also has a 6.6-inch big display with an In-Display fingerprint scanner.

However, it has one glaring weak point. The screen of the handset only has an HD+ resolution. That's lower than all the other phones in the PHP 15 to 20K price point.
