Samsung has officially confirmed with SamMobile that it's going to release the Galaxy M02s to India tomorrow, January 19. The device will be available in three color options and the most well-equipped variant is bound to hit the shelves for INR 9,999, which is the rough equivalent of around $136. The entry-level variant will cost even less, and of course, Samsung India has partnered with Amazon to bring the price down for customers who purchase the device using SBI credit cards.
The Galaxy M02s will be sold through Samsung's online shop, Amazon, and other key retail partners. As part of the Amazon Republic Day Sale, buyers who will be using an SBI credit card for the purchase of the Galaxy M02s will get a 10% instant discount.
Launch prices were revealed before but Samsung India has reconfirmed that it will be selling the cheaper configuration with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for INR 8,999. The pricier INR 9,999 variant has 4GB of RAM and double the on-board storage.
The Galaxy M02s has a 6.5-inch TFT LCD with an HD+ resolution and it's powered by a Qualcomm-made chipset that matches the specifications of the Snapdragon 450 SoC. Customers in India will have the option of buying the Galaxy M02s in black, blue, or red.
