Announcement. The Indian Samsung Galaxy F13 is almost like the international Galaxy M13

In India, the low-cost smartphone Samsung Galaxy F13 has been officially announced.

The newcomer is almost identical to the “global” smartphone
Samsung Galaxy M13, even their color sets are the same. I found only two differences:

  • Galaxy F13 has a more capacious battery - 6000 mAh versus 5000 mAh (the charging speed is the same, 15 W).
  • Because of the battery, the weight has slightly grown - by 15 grams. And the thickness is almost a millimeter.

A few words about the characteristics.

The chipset is its own, Samsung, but extremely modest. Exynos 850. In AnTuTu, I expect a little less than 150 thousand points.

Memory. 4 GB operational, 64 or 128 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards - a separate tray.

Screen with a diagonal of 6.6″ (105 cm²). The resolution is high, 1080 × 2408 (400 ppi), but there is no increased refresh rate.

Cameras. The front has a resolution of 8 MP. Behind is a typical Samsung budget trio - 50 + 5 + 2 MP (main camera, wide-angle, depth sensor).

Other. Suddenly there is an NFC module. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi - everything is right here.

What is a bit unexpected, for both smartphones, a set of LTE frequencies is announced that is quite suitable for you and me, including bands 7 and 20. Hey, what do we have there with parallel imports?

And about money. Samsung Galaxy F13 at the start of sales will cost ₹11999 (₽8420, $154) and ₹12999 (₽9120, $167) for the 4+64 and 4+128 GB versions, respectively.

For comparison, the Galaxy M13 4+64 GB costs €189 (₽10,900, $198) (pink) or €209 (₽12,000, $220) (not pink) in Spain. And the 4+128 GB variety costs €239 (₽13,700, $251), regardless of color.
