    Samsung is working on a new budget phone that will probably hit the market as the Galaxy A02. What we know so far is that it carries model number SM-A025F, which technically makes it a direct successor to the Galaxy A01 (SM-A015F). We also have a rough idea of what the device will offer spec-wise, in part because the phone was recently benchmark in Geekbench.

    According to the early benchmark listing, the Galaxy A02 / SM-A025F has 2GB of RAM and runs Android 10. Instead of naming the chipset powering the device, the benchmark entry only mentions that the SM-A025F is a Qualcomm reference phone. The Galaxy A01 was listed similarly ahead of its release but it ended up with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset under the hood.

    Galaxy A02 storage and color options

    Outside of the benchmark, our sources tell us that the Galaxy A02 will double the storage of the Galaxy A01. The former model was released earlier this year with 16GB/32GB of storage, however, the Galaxy A02 should hit the market with 32GB storage for the base model and 64GB of storage for the more expensive variant.

    The Galaxy A02 is expected to share its color options with the predecessor and therefore, it should hit the shelves in black, blue, and red. Other details remain unknown but this will be a budget device through and through, and it wouldn't surprise us if it will share many other characteristics with the Galaxy A01. We'll keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
