The new release of Samsung Galaxy F62 is the recent addition to Samsung Galaxy F series, a midrange series, manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The first model released in the series was the Samsung Galaxy F41, which was launched on October 8, 2020. The line is primarily targeting customers in India.
Samsung Galaxy F62: The newest addition
Samsung is slowly but steadily expanding its new F-series line of Galaxy phones, which up until now only consisted of the Galaxy F41.
The new arrival in the series is called the Samsung Galaxy F62, which is positioned at a higher price segment.
The goal of the Galaxy F62 is to deliver a true flagship-grade SoC in the mid-range price segment and for this, Samsung has chosen its Exynos 9825 SoC from the Galaxy Note 10+ as the centre-piece for this smartphone.
The new model has been priced at Rs 23,999.
It packs a humongous 7,000mAh battery making it the second device in Samsung’s lineup to sport a battery this big after the Galaxy M51. You also get a bundled 25W charger in the box and a textured dual-tone laser gradient design.

Samsung’s 7nm Exynos 9825 which made its debut with the Galaxy Note10 line sits at the helm paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.
The star of the show is the massive 7,000 mAh battery which should deliver ample running times.
