Samsung is slowly however steadily increasing its new F-series line of Galaxy telephones, which up till now solely consisted of the Galaxy F41. The brand new arrival within the sequence is known as the Samsung Galaxy F62, which is positioned at a better value section. The purpose of the Galaxy F62 is to ship a real flagship-grade SoC within the mid-range value section and for this, Samsung has chosen its Exynos 9825 SoC from the Galaxy Notice 10+ (Assessment) as the centerpiece for this smartphone.
With a beginning value of Rs. 23,999, the Samsung Galaxy F62 guarantees true flagship-level efficiency in comparison with the present competitors. I’ve spent a while with the brand new smartphone and this is my first impressions of the Galaxy F62.
Let’s begin with the identify. The ‘F62′ moniker is meant to suggest a leap in options and efficiency in comparison with the Galaxy F41, though the precise reasoning behind selecting the quantity 62 is unclear. Then there’s the similarities between it and the Samsung’s personal Galaxy M51, which additionally resides on this ball-park value vary. We’ll get to this in only a bit.
The Samsung Galaxy F62 ships in a reasonably petit trying field. Inside, you get a Sort-C to Sort-C USB cable, which is fascinating to see in a mid-range cellphone. Samsung nonetheless bundles a quick charger within the field for its mid-range telephones, in contrast to its 2021 flagships. There is not any case within the field, which is a disgrace because the polycarbonate again picks up scratches very simply.
This brings us to the design of the Samsung Galaxy F62, which seems to be neat. The Laser Blue end that I’ve seems to be hanging, though the shiny end does entice fingerprints the second you contact it. It feels very sturdy too nevertheless it’s additionally a chunky and heavy smartphone, measuring 9.5mm in thickness and weighing 218g. Regardless of the big width, the digicam bump nonetheless protrudes outwards a bit.
The show is a big 6.7-inch Tremendous AMOLED Plus panel, with a hope-punch cutout, and a full-HD+ decision. Out of the field, the show is a bit too vivid and colors are oversaturated for my liking, however you’ll be able to tune this within the Settings app. The Samsung Galaxy F62 misses out on a number of show options which is obtainable by the competitors, reminiscent of an in-display fingerprint sensor and excessive refresh charge. You get a capacitive side-mounted fingerprint sensor (within the energy button) and an ordinary 60Hz refresh charge. Samsung is hoping that its flagship SoC would make up for it.
The Exynos 9825 is little doubt a robust chip and whereas we can’t get into the efficiency side on this piece, since I nonetheless have to check it, relaxation assured there would not be any scarcity of energy if our expertise with the Galaxy Notice 10+ was something to go by. Samsung is providing two variants, 6GB of RAM at Rs. 23,999 and 8GB of RAM at Rs. 25,999, each having 128GB of storage. The latter may be expanded through the devoted slot for a microSD card within the SIM tray. The Samsung Galaxy F62 runs One UI 3.1 which relies on Android 11 and the expertise to date is just like that of the Galaxy S21 Extremely (Assessment).
One other massive spotlight and a motive why this cellphone is so thick is the huge 7,000mAh battery. Similar to the Galaxy M51, the Galaxy F62 ought to be capable to ship a correct two-day battery life. There’s assist for 25W quick charging too.
Rounding off the Galaxy F62 are the cameras, which as soon as once more, are similar to the Galaxy M51 (Assessment) on paper. There is a 32-megapixel selfie digicam and on the again, you get a major 64-megapixel digicam, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle digicam, and two 5-megapixel cameras for depth and macro duties. Samsung has added few flagship digicam options too reminiscent of Single Take, which makes use of the digicam’s AI to captures a number of stills from varied lenses and robotically apply filters, create GIFs, and so on, by simply urgent the shutter as soon as.
There’s clearly much more digicam testing to be performed, so do not forget to test again for my full overview coming quickly. Based mostly on what I’ve used and seen to date, the Samsung Galaxy F62 looks as if a Galaxy M51 with a extra highly effective SoC. This may be an excellent factor for those who wished extra efficiency however did not wish to spend far more. Nonetheless, does slapping on a flagship SoC excuse Samsung from providing different utilitarian options reminiscent of a in-display fingerprint sensor or a 90Hz refresh charge? Tell us what you consider this determination within the feedback.
