4 Simple Ways to Tell What Samsung Galaxy Phone You Have

Need to find out which Samsung phone you have? Here are four easy ways to tell.

Method 1: Via the settings menu

On your Samsung phone, browse to SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE to view your:

  • Model name
  • Model number
  • Serial number
  • IMEI number
  • Hardware version

To view your carrier, browse to SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE > STATUS INFORMATION > SIM CARD STATUS. It will display information like:

  • Network (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.)
  • Voice and data network types (5G, LTE, etc.)
  • Signal strength

To view your storage capacity, browse to SETTINGS > BATTERY AND DEVICE CARE > STORAGE. It will display:

  • Total capacity
  • How much storage you have left

If you want to know your Android version and other information, browse to SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE > SOFTWARE INFORMATION.

The process can vary slightly between Samsung models. If you can’t find the information you need, browse to SETTINGS and search for terms like “about phone,” “storage,” and “carrier,” for example.

Method 2: Check the rear case

Samsung prints the model number on the back of their phones. Here’s where to find it:

Of course, this won’t tell you the name of your phone. If your phone won’t power on and you can’t use the settings menu, try Method 3 or 4 and reference the table toward the end of this article.

If you have an older model with a removable battery, you can find identification labels placed in the battery compartment.

To find yours, power off your phone and remove the back case. Lift the battery out, and you should see the sticker with your phone’s model number.
