Samsung has launched the Galaxy F41, which has heretofore been the stuff of rumors concerning a new series of smartphones from this OEM for the Indian market. It has nearly the exact same specs as the Galaxy M31, except for rear cameras that are updated in both configuration and appearance. Flipkart plans to release it in conjunction with a special event it is hosting on October 16, 2020.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

Some leaks have indicated that Samsung has planned a new, "camera-centric" series of smartphones directed at the Indian market. Now, it seems these rumors have been proven true with the launch of the Galaxy F41.

Then again, this device is technically not a brand-new phone. It has the same Exynos 9611 processor, 6GB of RAM and 6000mAh battery as the pre-existing Galaxy M31. In fact, the two only differ in 1 respect: the rear cameras.

The M31 has a 64MP primary sensor, accompanied by an 8MP f2/2 ultrawide lens and 2 5MP sensors for depth and macro sensing. However, Samsung appears to have decided that Indian consumers will not miss the last of these in the F41.

Therefore, it has only 3 rear modules - saying that, they come in an updated housing that matches that of the Note 20 series (or the Galaxy Z Fold2) in terms of design. The resulting phone will be sold through Flipkart rather than Amazon (the usual purveyor of the Galaxy M line), which has let it be known that the F41 will have a "normal" price of INR 16999 ((~US$232)) for a SKU with 64GB of internal storage or INR 17999 (~$264) for one with a top-end 128GB of the same - unless it is bought during the 2020 Big Billion Day Sales event.

This promotion starts on October 16, 2020 - the same day as the F41's release to the market in India. It will involve discounts for the new mobile device that bring it down to INR 15499 (~$232) for the base 6/64GB model, or INR 16499 (~$232) for the 6/128GB SKU. The Galaxy F41 is also due to go on sale via Samsung India's online store, but with less clear-cut pricing and availability information in that case.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
