With so many smartphones out there, it is quite possible to forget the model name of your Android device. It can happen to all of us. So what do you do when you can’t recall which phone you have?

In this tutorial, we are going to be showing you how to identify your Android smartphone’s model, in a matter of seconds.


Method #1: Via Settings

Manufacturers always include relevant device info somewhere in the settings app.

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Locate and open the ‘About phone’ tab
  3. Search for the ‘Model number’ tab. In there, it must display the device’s model name

There are some manufacturers, though, who do not include the device’s precise model name in the ‘About’ tab. Even if that is the case, we have got you covered.

Method #2: Use a third-party app

There are plenty of free Android apps on Play Store that provide users with a comprehensive list of information regarding the model of your device and hardware details.

In this guide, we used an app called ‘My Device’, which is free on the Play Store.

  1. Download the app from the Play Store
  2. Open it
  3. All the relevant info will be displayed


Hit the hamburger menu button located in the top left-hand corner to access the complete information menu. Users can check out all the details about their device’s operating system, CPU, battery, camera, sensors and so on.
