The phone can record 4K videos using front and rear cameras.
Samsung has equipped the Galaxy F62 with the Exynos 9825 processor, which was also used in the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+. The Exynos 9825 is a 7nm chipset with two Mongoose M4 CPU cores, two Cortex-A75 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU cores, and a Mali-G76 MP12 GPU.
