samsung-a42-5g-sku-header-231020.pngHey guys,


the launches don’t stop today. Another big one to follow. The new Samsung Galaxy A42 5G is now available at O2.


Looking for a phone with everything? Here it is: The speed of O2 5G, a 48MP quad-lens camera, plenty of power and a 6.6-inch Infinity-U display, all wrapped in a sleek design.



Here’s a bit more about why we love the all new Samsung Galaxy A42 5G


Unleash O2 5G

With the Galaxy A42 and O2 5G, you can download a full HD movie at mind-boggling speeds, say goodbye to lag when video calling mates, and share pics and videos in the blink of an eye. We now have 5G in parts of most major UK towns and cities, as well as lots of smaller towns and villages. To find out more about O2 5G, head to our 5G page.


Charge less, do more

Live your digital life to the full without worrying about running out of juice. A powerful 5,000mAh battery and superfast 15W charging means you can play, surf, share, stream and download to your heart’s content. Galaxy A42 5G also comes with 128GB storage, expandable up to 1TB with a MicroSD card (sold separately) -- enough space to store tons of pics and HD vids. Handy, considering the phone comes equipped with four brilliant cameras.


Give it your best shot

Galaxy A42 5G has four rear cameras to unleash the photographer in you. The 48MP main camera shoots in stunning 4K UHD, making every picture epic and every video vivid. The 20MP selfie camera with Smart Beauty helps you look your best from any angle, so snap a pic and watch the likes pile up. Clever AI will automatically switch to the 123° Ultrawide camera so no one’s left out. And if you want to go ultra-close, the Macro camera captures every detail and texture with impressive clarity. If that weren’t enough, a 5MP depth camera allows you to isolate the subject and create natural-looking Bokeh.


Beautiful from any angle

Sleek and eye-catching, Galaxy A42 5G is guaranteed to thrill – even before you turn it on. The layered pattern on the back gives it a premium, modern finish. But looks aren’t everything – the ergonomic design and rounded corners ensure a comfortable grip. Which is really handy, because you won’t want to put it down thanks to a stunning super AMOLED 6.6-inch Infinity-U display. With less bezel and more screen, it’s made for immersive entertainment. Whether you’re binging on your favourite shows or scrolling through social feeds, you simply won’t be able to take your eyes off it.
