Samsung Galaxy A02 with 5,000 mAh battery and 3GB RAM launched

by Johnson Daniel

Samsung launched the affordable Galaxy A02s device back in November 2020 marking it as one of the first members of its Galaxy A (2021) lineup alongside the Galaxy A12. Today, we get to see the Galaxy A02 smartphone which was announced at Thailand with a retail of THB 2,999 (converts to $100/€82).

Like the Galaxy A02s, the Galaxy A02 is built around a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD upfront with a waterdrop notch cutout for the 5MP selfie cam. Around the plastic back we have a 13MP primary camera next to a 2MP macro cam. Samsung Galaxy A02 with 5,000 mAh battery and 3GB RAM launched

Spec-wise you’re getting a similar package to the A02s with one less camera around the back and MediaTek’s MT6739W chipset at the helm. You get a single 3GB RAM and 32GB storage version though you can expand that via microSD.

The Samsung Galaxy A02 boots Android 10 with OneUI 2 on top as it receives power from a 5000 mAh battery that 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 today but we expect the Galaxy A02 to make its way to more regions in the coming months.
