Samsung launched two new smartphones Samsung Galaxy A02s and Galaxy A12. Both the smartphones will launch in 2021. The A02s is one of the company’s most budget-friendly smartphones. According to Samsung, this new smartphone will offer a long lasting battery, a big immersive display, and powerful cameras to the best of its abilities given the low price. So, let’s learn about the specs, features, price, and availability of Samsung Galaxy A02s in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy A02s Overview
Display and Design
The handset measures 6.5” diagonally and comes with a TFT panel. The panel has HD+ resolution and comes with Infinity-V notch to house a selfie camera.
Galaxy A02s has a fairly standard design as an entry level smartphone. The bezels are noticeable whereas the bottom chin is thick. The back panel has a prism like design element to spruce things up a bit. There’s also a rectangular camera module around the back and a SAMSUNG branding towards the bottom.
The rectangular module houses a triple camera setup aligned vertically. It also encloses a LED flash. The main camera here is a 13MP shooter. It also has a 2MP depth sensor. Finally, the setup is completed by a 2MP macro shooter.
Meanwhile, the Infinity -V notch hosts a 5MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture.
Performance and Memory
Like the Galaxy A12, this handset is also driven by an unknown processor. But we have information that it is an octa-core processor operating at 1.8GHz. Therefore, we might see Snapdragon 450 SoC as the powerhouse of this device. The chip is paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The storage can be expanded up to 1TB via microSD card if necessary.
Further, the phone boots on an unspecified software. But we assume that it will be running with Android 10 out of the box coupled with a core version of One UI.
