Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 has gone official in South Korea. This became apparent when its listing was spotted on SK Telecom, a wireless telecommunication operator in Korea. This is pretty suggestive that the phone has been launched in partnership with the telecom operator.
The Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 features a 6.6-inch full HD+ Infinity-V display. It is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor and packs 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The onboard storage can be expanded up to 1TB using a microSD card slot. It runs Android 11 and has dual-SIM slots.
On the back, the Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 has a triple rear camera setup, which is organized in a different fashion inside a squarish module. The primary sensor is 64MP with f/1.8 aperture, 5MP secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP tertiary sensor with f/2.4 aperture. In the front, you get an 8MP camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 phone has a 5,000mAh battery capacity. The phone features a teardrop-style notch on the display and a fingerprint scanner that stays on the side edge.
The phone is expected to launch as Galaxy F42 5G in India. This is because the Galaxy Wide 5 is listed with model number SM-E426S and this is a similar model number to a phone with model number SM-E426B. The latter model number is reported to be attached to the upcoming Galaxy F42 5G. This suggests it might launch as the rebranded version of the Galaxy Wide 5 phone.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Wide 5 is KRW 4,49,900 ($385) for the lone 6GB RAM and 128GB storage option. It comes in Black, White, and Blue color options. It is up for sale on the SK Telecom site.
