Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy F04s in the Works; Next Budget Phone in F-series

Samsung is working on a new F-series phone. Pricebaba has learned through industrial sources that the device will be called the Galaxy F04s. The moniker of the phone is a good hint that it will be an entry-level model.

Last year, Samsung released the Galaxy F02s in India with a starting price of Rs 8,999. However, the company did not release the Galaxy F03s later. Hence, it appears that the Galaxy F04s will succeed the F02s. A new Samsung phone with SM-E045F/DS has been spotted in the database of Wi-Fi Alliance. This device appears to be the upcoming Galaxy F04s.

The Wi-Fi certification of the SM-E045F/DS reveals that it supports 2.4GHz single-band Wi-Fi. The device runs on Android 12 OS. Unfortunately, there is no other information on the specifications of the device.

The model numbers SM-E025F and SM-E025F/DS were associated with the Galaxy F02s. Hence, it appears that the Wi-Fi-certified SM-E045F/DS could be the Galaxy F04s.

Unfortunately, we do not have information on the major specs of the Galaxy F04s. The Galaxy F02s was a rebranded version of the Galaxy M02s / Galaxy A02s. Hence, there is a possibility that the F04s could be a rebranded or tweaked version of the Galaxy A04s, which debuted earlier this month with a price tag of Rs 13,499.

The Galaxy A04s has a 6.5-inch HD+ 90Hz display. It is powered by the Exynos 850 chip, 4GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery that supports 15W charging. It runs on Android 12 OS with One UI 4.1 on top. It has a 5-megapixel front camera and a 50-megapixel (main) + 2-megapixel (depth) + 2-megapixel (macro) triple camera unit. The A04s is fitted with a side-facing fingerprint scanner.
