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 new arrival within the collection is named the Samsung Galaxy F62, which is positioned at the next value phase. The purpose of the Galaxy F62 is to ship a real flagship-grade SoC within the mid-range value phase and for this, Samsung has chosen its Exynos 9825 SoC from the Galaxy Note 10+ (Review) as the center piece 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 indicate 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 moderately petit wanting field. Inside, you get a Type-C to Type-C USB cable, which is attention-grabbing to see in a mid-range telephone. Samsung nonetheless bundles a quick charger within the field for its mid-range telephones, in contrast to its 2021 flagships. There’s no 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 appears to be like neat. The Laser Blue end that I’ve appears to be like placing, though the shiny end does entice fingerprints the second you contact it. It feels very sturdy too but it surely’s additionally a chunky and heavy smartphone, measuring 9.5mm in thickness and weighing 218g. Despite the big width, the digicam bump nonetheless protrudes outwards a bit.
The show is a big 6.7-inch Super 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 hues are oversaturated for my liking, however you may tune this within the Settings app. The Samsung Galaxy F62 misses out on a number of show options which is obtainable by the competitors, corresponding to an in-display fingerprint sensor and excessive refresh price. You get a capacitive side-mounted fingerprint sensor (within the energy button) and a regular 60Hz refresh price. Samsung is hoping that its flagship SoC would make up for it.
The Exynos 9825 is little doubt a strong chip and whereas we cannot 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 Note 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 could be expanded through the devoted slot for a microSD card within the SIM tray. The Samsung Galaxy F62 runs One UI 3.1 which is predicated on Android 11 and the expertise to this point is just like that of the Galaxy S21 Ultra (Review).
Another massive spotlight and a purpose why this telephone is so thick is the large 7,000mAh battery. Just just like the Galaxy M51, the Galaxy F62 ought to have the ability 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 (Review) on paper. There’s a 32-megapixel selfie digicam and on the again, you get a main 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 corresponding to Single Take, which makes use of the digicam’s AI to captures a number of stills from varied lenses and mechanically apply filters, create GIFs, and so forth, by simply urgent the shutter as soon as.
There’s clearly much more digicam testing to be finished, so do not forget to test again for my full evaluation coming quickly. Based on what I’ve used and seen to this point, the Samsung Galaxy F62 looks as if a Galaxy M51 with a extra highly effective SoC. This is perhaps a very good factor for people who needed extra efficiency however did not need to spend way more. However, does slapping on a flagship SoC excuse Samsung from providing different utilitarian options corresponding to a in-display fingerprint sensor or a 90Hz refresh price? Let us know what you consider this choice within the feedback.
