Samsung teases midrange phone with 7000mAh battery and soc from Galaxy Note 10

Samsung will present the Galaxy F62 next week. The midrange smartphone has a 7000mAh battery and features the Exynos 9825. That was Samsung’s first soc made with EUV and it is also included in the Galaxy Note 10 phones from 2019.

The F62 is featured in a teaser at Flipkart, an Indian retailer. The Galaxy F-series is a line of midrange smartphones that Samsung only sells online and the South Korean company mainly focuses on India. Galaxy F phones have not yet appeared in the Benelux.

The Exynos 9825 comes from 2019 and is Samsung’s first 7nm-soc produced partly with EUV. The variant of the Exynos 9820 from the S10 has two Samsung M4 cores, two Cortex A75 cores and four Cortex A55 cores. Samsung puts an Arm Mali G76MP12 GPU in it and there is also a separate core for calculations in neural networks. The built-in Shannon 5000 modem does not support 5G, but does support 4G over lte cat 20, with connections on eight frequencies simultaneously for a maximum download speed of 2Gbit/s.

The fact that Samsung reuses the soc is probably due to the planned extended support for high-end phones. The S10 series has already been upgraded to Android 10 and 11 and will also be upgraded to Android 12 in the future. For cheaper phones, Samsung promises one upgrade, and that would come out on the same Android 12 for the F62.

The F62 is also rumored to have a 7000mAh battery. Samsung will present the phone next week. It would cost between 20,000 and 25,000 Indian rupees, currently approximately between 225 and 290 euros.
