Samsung silently introduces Galaxy A02 with a 5,000mAh battery


Last updated: January 27th, 2021 at 08:14 UTC+02:00

We had reported yesterday that Samsung could soon launch one more budget smartphone, the Galaxy A02. Today, the South Korean tech giant unveiled the Galaxy A02 in Thailand. The smartphone was silently listed on Samsung Thailand’s website, revealing all the features and specifications of the device.

The Galaxy A02 has a large, 6.5-inch Infinity-V display that uses a PLS TF LCD panel with HD+ resolution. It comes in four colors: Denim Black, Denim Blue, Denim Gray, and Denim Red. The phone is equipped with the MediaTek MT6739W quad-core processor (with PowerVR Rogue GE8100 GPU), 2/3GB RAM, and 32GB/64GB internal storage. It also features a microSD card slot for storage expansion (up to 1TB) and a dedicated dual-SIM card slot.

At the rear, the Galaxy A02 features a 13MP+2MP dual-camera setup and an LED flash. The 2MP camera has a macro lens for close-up shots. The phone can record Full HD (1080p) videos at 30fps. At the front, the entry-level smartphone features a 5MP selfie camera with an F2.0 aperture. Sadly, the phone runs Android 10 (with One UI 2), which is more than a year old. The phone has LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, headphone jack, a microUSB port, and a 5,000mAh battery with 7.75W charging.

Samsung hasn’t unveiled the Galaxy A02’s availability yet, but its price is THB 2,999 (around $99.99) in Thailand. We expect the entry-level device to make it to more markets soon.
