How to get Device name and model programmatically in android

By admin

Finding a way to get the android device name and model programatically. No worries We can find the device (hardware and software) information using Build Package in Android. Build package provides information about the current build, extracted from system properties.

Following is a small code snippet that gets the market (consumer friendly) name of a device.

  /** Returns the consumer friendly device name  */
    fun getDeviceName(): String {
        val manufacturer = Build.MANUFACTURER
        val model = Build.MODEL
        return if (model.startsWith(manufacturer)) {
        } else capitalize(manufacturer) + " " + model

    private fun capitalize(str: String): String {
        if (TextUtils.isEmpty(str)) {
            return str
        val arr = str.toCharArray()
        var capitalizeNext = true
        val phrase = StringBuilder()
        for (c in arr) {
            if (capitalizeNext && Character.isLetter(c)) {
                capitalizeNext = false
            } else if (Character.isWhitespace(c)) {
                capitalizeNext = true
        return phrase.toString()

Here are a few examples of device names that we got from diffrent devices by running the above code:

Samsung GT-S5830L
Motorola MB860
Sony Ericsson LT18i
HTC Desire V
HTC Wildfire S A510e
