Galaxy F41 unveiled: 6,000 mAh battery and 64MP cam, cheaper than the M31
The Samsung Galaxy F41 has a 6,000 mAh battery that is designed to keep the party going – it can last up to 26 hours of video playback, days of phone calls or just browsing the web for 21 hours straight.
The phone is designed and made in India and the “Full On” marketing makes it very clear that it is aimed at a young crowd. Still, the flashy marketing can’t conceal the Galaxy M31 that hides inside this phone.

The phone is configured with with 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. The triple card slot can hold a microSD in addition to two SIMs.
Much more important is the camera. The 64 MP module on the rear and 32 MP selfie cam are offer several modes and filters that vary from useful to fun. Single Take is the best one, it shoots 7 photos and 3 videos simultaneously and lets you pick the the ones you want to keep later.
The rear camera can record 4K video and offers hyperlapse and boomerang modes. There’s also a 123° ultra wide cam with an 8 MP sensor on the back, plus “Live Focus” camera (a depth sensor). The fingerprint reader is mounted on the back side as well.
The phone comes bundled with a 15W charger, which isn’t fast by any means – it needs 2 hours and 40 minutes for a 0-100% charge.
