The F54 5G has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate.  The screen is bright even in outdoors. The phone has HDR support, which works on YouTube, but doesn’t work on Netflix.

The Galaxy F54 5G is powered by the latest Exynos 1380 5nm SoC with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. The performance is good for daily usage, but the gaming performance is not on par with the Snapdragon 778G. It has support for several 5G bands.

The phone runs Android 13 with One UI 5.1 on top. Samsung has promised 4 OS updates and 5 years of security updates for the phone. It also has NFC and Knox security.

Inside the tiny punch-hole there is a 32-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, same as the A54. The earpiece grill is on the top edge, but it doesn’t double up as a secondary speaker, so this has mono speakers. There is a small chin below the display.

Coming to the button placements, the power button with a fingerprint scanner and the volume rockers are present on the right side. The hybrid SIM slot is present on the left. The primary microphone, USB Type-C port and the loudspeaker grill are on the bottom. The secondary microphone is on the top. The phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack. Even though it looks like metal, the sides have a plastic frame.

The F54 has triple rear cameras without the camera bar that matches with the S23 series and other phones. It has a 108MP main camera with OIS, 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro camera. Both the front and rear cameras support up to 4K 30 fps recording, but rear camera stabilization works only in 1080p. Check out some camera samples below.

Compared to the glass back in the A54, the F54 has a plastic back with a glossy finish which attracts fingerprints, but it changes colours when light hits at certain angles, making it look attractive. The phone also comes in Meteor Blue colour. Even though it has a large, 6000mAh battery, the phone weighs 199 grams. It has support for 25W fast charging.

The Samsung Galaxy F54 5G is priced at Rs. 31,999 for the single 8GB + 256GB model. As an introductory offer, the phone will be available at an all-inclusive price of Rs. 27,999 with select bank cards. It is now available from Flipkart, and at select retail stores.
