Samsung Galaxy F34 Indian pre-orders open with time-sensitive special offers
The Samsung Galaxy F34 has come to join the F54 on the Indian Android smartphone market, with the same generous 6,000mAh battery to boot. The newer of the 2 also rocks the apparently successful triple-ring rear camera and 120Hz display formula of its OEM's 2023 mobile devices, although it is disrupted somewhat by a water-drop notch and an obtrusive chin in this case.
All in all, the parallels between the Galaxy F34 and recently-released M34 are increasingly hard to miss - the former even boasts the same "No-Shake" 50MP rear camera system, Android 13-based UI and Gorilla Glass 5 of the latter.
Then again, the M-series variant is sold through Amazon.in, whereas the F34 is available direct from Samsung.com/in. The website does not identify its new listing's "2.0-2.4GHz" processor by name, which, as it is very likely to be the Exynos 1280, is a little odd.
Regardless, the F34 stands out in new Mystic Green or Electric Black shades, closer to those of the flagship S23 line than the blues or prismatic silver of the M34.
The latest F-series device starts at a recommended retail price of INR 24,499 (~US$296) for a 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage base model - however, it is already discounted to INR 18,999, or to INR 20,999 for the 8/128GB top-end SKU (~US$230-254: same as the M34 on Amazon right now) to mark its launch.
However, Samsung has indicated that those who "pre-order now" can get a new M34 for as little as INR 16,999 (~US$205) to INR 18,999 with "Instant Bank Cashback". This offer is valid for the next ~72 hours from now (August 7, 2023 at 22:28 IST).
