Last year in November, South Korean tech giant Samsung had introduced one of its most affordable phones with the Samsung Galaxy A02s which retails for €150. Now, there is an even more aggressively priced handset with the Galaxy A02 which was announced in Thailand with a retail of THB 2,999 ($100/€82).
As for the specifications of this new device, there is a similar package to the A02s with one less camera around the back and MediaTek’s MT6739W chipset at the helm. Users get a single 3GB RAM and 32GB storage version though you can expand that via microSD. There’s a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD upfront with a waterdrop notch cutout for the 5MP selfie cam. Around the plastic back, there is a 13MP primary camera next to a 2MP macro cam.
The A02 boots Android 10 with OneUI 2 on top. Its 5,000 mAh battery charges over microUSB at 7.75W speeds. The phone comes with dual SIM support and also sports a headphone jack. Availability details were not announced, but we expect the Galaxy A02 to make its way to more regions in the coming months.
