At the beginning of this month, Samsung announced the Galaxy A42 5G as its cheapest 5G-ready smartphone. The South Korean company revealed its key specifications, pricing, and availability. However, it did not mention the name of the processor that fuels the device. Fresh information that it could be fueled by the all-new Snapdragon 750G mobile platform that went official yesterday.
Dealntech has shared a screenshot of the source code of the Galaxy A42 5G’s Geekbench benchmark. In the screengrab shown below, the handset is mentioned with its SM-A426B model number. The source code revealed that the chipset that powers the Galaxy A42 5G has an octa-core that includes two cores running at 2.21 GHz and six cores clocking at 1.80 GHz. It also revealed that the SoC includes Adreno 619 graphics.
Previous speculations claimed that the Galaxy A42 5G is driven by the Snapdragon 690 5G that went official last month. However, the configurations of the processor cores and CPU that has surfaced on the benchmarking platform matches with the newly unveiled Snapdragon 750G chipset. Hence, the publication has claimed that the Galaxy A42 5G could be the first phone to feature the SD750G chipset.
