Samsung Galaxy M52 5G and Galaxy F42 5G have been tipped to launch in India in September. The two phones have had some leaks in the past and back in May, it was said 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 the Galaxy F41 respectively, which were launched that were launched last year. As of now, Samsung has not shared any official information on the two phones.
Samsung seems to be working on a Galaxy M series and a Galaxy F series phone. The Galaxy M52 5G has been in the news for some time now and is said to be a rebranded Samsung Galaxy F52 5G that launched in May this year. The rumoured Galaxy F42 5G, on the other hand, is more of a mystery as very few details about this phone have surfaced so far. Now, known tipster Debayan Roy (@Gadgetsdata) shared on Twitter that both the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G and Galaxy F42 5G will launch in India next month.
The tipster stated that the Galaxy M52 5G will be unveiled at the end of September and the Galaxy F42 5G will be unveiled before that, but in the same month. The two models will expand Samsung's mid-tier range of 5G smartphones.
As for specifications, most recently, the Galaxy M52 5G was spotted on Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website hinting at an imminent India launch, as reported by MySmartPrice. It has also been tipped to come with a triple rear camera setup headlined by a 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW3 primary sensor, accompanied by a 12-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel macro shooter. At the front, the phone is said to come with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. An alleged Geekbench listing for the Galaxy M52 5G hinted at a Snapdragon 778G SoC and 6GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy F42 5G, on the other hand, was also allegedly spotted in a Geekbench listing last month that hinted at 6GB RAM and a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC. In the previous month, it was reportedly spotted on Bluetooth SIG and BIS website as well. The Galaxy F42 5G could be a rebranded Samsung Galaxy A22 5G that launched in June this year.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung has not shared any information on the two rumored phones so this piece of information should be taken with a pinch of salt.
