The model name is the name with which the smartphone is marketed to the audience. The model number is a longer alphanumeric string which may contain the model name as well. Knowing the model number of your smartphone is important when you’re trying to buy spare parts or going to resell the phone to another buyer. In this article, we show you how to find the model number and name of your Android or iOS smartphone.

Other ways to find out the model number

You can also find out the model number of your device, be it Android or iOS, simply by checking the retail box it came in. The information sticker on the retail box contains all details ranging from the IMEI number to the model number of the device. In smartphones with a removable battery, you can find the model number and IMEI number printed on the panel beneath the battery. 

Difference between a model number and a serial number

While looking for the model number of your device, you may have come across the ‘serial number’. The serial number is typically a more complicated alphanumeric string than the model number. While the model number is the same for every device of the particular model, a serial number is a unique code that is assigned to every unit. For example, all Samsung Galaxy M31s have the same model number (SM-M315F/DS) but every individual Samsung M31 unit will have a unique serial number. The IMEI number is also a unique code assigned to every individual phone, but it is used by telecommunication companies to identify the receiver phone.
