The Galaxy A42 5G is the third 5G-enabled A series phone that the company has launched this year. It comes with a 6.6-inch Super AMOLED display and a quad-camera setup at the rear. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn't revealed the rest of the phone's specs yet. There is no word on the pricing either. The phone will be joining Samsung's 5G-enabled A series lineup "later this year."
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is the company's latest budget Android tablet, featuring a 10.4-inch 2,000 x 1,200 resolution display and a Snapdragon 662 processor. It also comes with a four-speaker audio system, an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and a 7,040mAh battery. The tablet will be released later this year in gray, silver, and gold color options.
The Galaxy Fit 2 is a budget fitness band with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display and advanced tracking features. Samsung says the Galaxy Fit 2 can automatically track up to five different types of activities, along with your sleep patterns. It is also claimed to last up to 15 days on a single charge. However, there is no word on pricing or availability yet.
Along with the new Galaxy A42 5G, Tab A7, and the Galaxy Fit 2, Samsung has also announced the Wireless Charger Trio. As its name clearly suggests, the Wireless Charging Trio is capable of charging up to three devices at the same time. It is large enough to easily accommodate the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Watch 3, and Galaxy Buds Live side by side. It supports the Qi wireless charging standard, which means you can use it to charge any device that supports the standard. According to SamMobile, the Wireless Charging Trio will cost €99 when it goes on sale later this year.
