Samsung continues to make Galaxy F series devices to cater to those who want more for the price. Here’s a new one, the Samsung Galaxy F04, which has an appealing design, but aging hardware.
The Samsung Galaxy F04 uses an old and slightly underpowered MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core processor that’s built on a 12nm process. It’s available in a single RAM and storage configuration of 4GB/64GB.
As for the rest of the specs, well, they are quite expected. We have a standard-sized 6.5-inch screen with only an HD+ pixel resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. A 5-megapixel selfie camera sits on top.
On the back, we have a really clean and trendy design that’s available in Opal Green and Jade Purple. The dual shooters don’t sit on the usual camera island that older devices have. The first one has a 13-megapixel camera while the latter is a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
It has a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging, no surprises there.
On the software side, we have the Android 12 operating system with Samsung One UI on top. Sadly, it lacks a fingerprint scanner but may have a face unlock feature.
The Samsung Galaxy F04 will be available in India through Flipkart with an SRP of INR9,499 (~Php6,400). It will launch with a special introductory price of INR7,499 (~Php5,100) on January 12. We haven’t seen any Galaxy F devices in the Philippines, so we’re not expecting to see this one either.
