- Samsung has launched the Galaxy F23 in India.
- The phone will offer four years of security patches and two years of OS updates.
- The F23 will retail for under $250 in India.
Samsung launched its first F series smartphones back in 2020, being budget devices in India with a focus on big batteries and good cameras for the price. Now, the company has launched the Galaxy F23 in the market, and it’s looking like a standout offering.
One of the Galaxy F23’s main selling points might just be the update pledge. You’re still getting the standard two years of OS updates here, but Samsung is also pledging to deliver four years of security patches. This is pretty rare for the price point, it must be said.
The phone itself has a solid list of features for the price too. You’re getting a Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset, a 120Hz FHD+ screen (presumably LCD, with Gorilla Glass 5), and a 5,000mAh battery with 25W charging speeds. In saying so, the Flipkart product listing notes that you aren’t getting a charger in the box — much like the Galaxy A13 5G and A03s.
The Samsung Galaxy F23 is also equipped with a triple rear camera system, featuring a 50MP main shooter, 8MP ultrawide lens (123-degree field of view), and a 2MP macro camera. An 8MP camera handles selfies and video calls.
As for the price, Samsung says the phone is available starting at Rs 17,499 (~$228) for the 4GB/128GB variant and Rs 18,499 (~$241) for the 6GB/128GB model. However, the company is offering early bird promotional pricing of Rs 14,999 (~$195) and Rs 15,999 (~$208) respectively. The phone will be available via Flipkart and Samsung Shop from March 16 in Aqua Blue and Forest Green colorways.
