Samsung Galaxy F13 has a glass front with a plastic frame and plastic back build. There is nothing exciting about the design as it has the same design seen on most of the Samsung mid-range smartphones launched this year. There is a rectangular camera panel on the back that houses camera sensors and an LED flash. Samsung branding on the bottom of the back panel sums up the minimalistic design of the phone.

There is a triple camera setup on the back panel of the Samsung Galaxy F13.
