Exclusive: Galaxy F onslaught begins as Samsung prepares new phone


Last updated: October 23rd, 2020 at 14:07 UTC+02:00

Rumors about a new Galaxy F series emerged earlier this year, initially leading people to believe that it would be related to foldable phones. That’s because the model numbers for Samsung’s foldable phones start with “F” but they’re actually a part of the “Z” series.

We later found out that the first device in this mysterious series was the Galaxy F41. It wasn’t really a new device since it was basically a rebadged Galaxy M31 with a few missing features. This series is going to be around because Samsung is now working on another Galaxy F device.

New Galaxy F series device is now in development

We hear that a new Galaxy F device is now being developed. Details are extremely limited at this time but we do know that it carries model number SM-F127G. Samsung will likely be calling this the Galaxy F12s based on its naming habits. This is a new series, though, so who knows, it may just launch as the Galaxy F12.

It’s safe to assume that this is going to be an entry-level device. Samsung’s devices get progressively better as the numbers go up, for example, a Galaxy A10e is far less capable than the Galaxy A51. That’s what we can expect for the Galaxy F series as well.

Whether or not this will be an entirely new device or another rebadged phone remains to be seen. Like the Galaxy F41, we expect Samsung’s entire focus to be on selling the phone in India. Expect to see more Galaxy F-branded phones going forward. As if Samsung doesn’t already make enough phones as it is.

There’s no information as yet regarding pricing and availability. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
