Samsung has today announced a new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy F62 in India with the headlining feature being its massive 7,000mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy F62 is a midranger phone despite its massive battery. It comes with a 6.7 inch AMOLED display with a FHD+ display with a camera cutout at the middle.
At the back, it has a quad camera setup comprising of the main 64MP camera, a 12MP ultra wide camera and two 5MP cameras for depth and macro photos respectively. The selfie camera is a surprisingly generous 32MP sensor.
The phone is powered by Samsung’s own silicon, the 7nm Exynos 9825. It has either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded.
You will be pleased to know that the massive 7,000mAh battery can be charged quickly with 25W charging. The Samsung Galaxy F62 also features a side mounted fingerprint sensor, NFC and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
It runs Android 11 out of the box with Samsung’s own One UI 3.1 on top. It is not clear whether it will receive Samsung’s 3 years of updates promise that is usually reserved for their high end phones and tablets.
The Samsung Galaxy F62 will ship in three colours: Laser Green, Laser Blue and Laser Grey. It retails for $330 for the 6GB/128GB version while the 8GB/128GB version goes for $358. We will have to wait and see whether this will be brought to Kenya.
This is not the first midranger smartphone from Samsung that has a massive 7,000mAh battery. They announced the Galaxy M51 6 months ago with the same battery size.
