Possibly not many will remember it, but back in 2016, Samsung officially introduced the Galaxy Wide, a low-mid-range terminal which was advertised and marketed in the company’s home country: South Korea. With this launch, the manufacturer inaugurated a line of devices that, although it does not reach other markets, it does continue to receive new members.
The last to arrive has been the Samsung Galaxy Wide 5, a mid-range model that brings 5G connectivity on board thanks to Mediatek’s Dimensity 700 processor. In addition, it mounts a 5,000 mAh battery and a triple rear camera. Some rumors claim that it could reach other markets such as Galaxy F42 to replace the Galaxy F41 that we met last year.
