The molecule of the title benzamide derivative, C13H10BrNO, is twisted with the dihedral angle between the phenyl and 4-bromophenyl rings being 58.63 (9)°. The central N—C=O plane makes dihedral angles of 30.2 (2) and 29.2 (2)° with the phenyl and 4-bromophenyl rings, respectively. In the crystal, molecules are linked by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into chains along . C—H⋯π contacts combine with the N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, to form a three-dimensional network.
