Samsung presented essentially the same entry-level device in October, December, and now in January, and apparently the only difference is the distribution location, which is especially good news from the point of view of updates, because it was written for a phone update package can be docked on three devices with different names, with some regional changes.
Let’s review it for the third time, as it provides a Galaxy A04s / M04 and now it is F04: tray size of 164.2 x 75.9 x 9.1 millimeters with large gaps around the 6.5″ PLS panel. The resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and the 60 Hz refresh rate are low, and so is the label. The price of F04 in Inda is HUF 43,000, but it can be purchased in advance for a very friendly HUF 34,000. Instead, if everything is true, you have to make do with the octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 chip, which is not today’s chicken (especially not the PowerVR GE8320 GPU). The 4 GB RAM and the expandable 64 GB storage, however, are at the price level.
The 4G phone sports a 13-megapixel main camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor on the back, and a 5-megapixel selfie unit. The two-year Android update guarantee is good news, but the fact that the F04 starts with Android 12 is less good, even though Android 13 has been available for Galaxy phones for months. So, the version you should have started with is certainly “used up” by a large update from both.
