It was revealed last month that Samsung is readying two new affordable Galaxy smartphones: Galaxy M02 (SM-M025F) and Galaxy A02 (SM-A025F). However, certain certification documents pointed towards the possibility of both phones being identical in terms of specifications. Now, it looks like the Galaxy M02 could be launched sooner than later.
Going by the certification awarded by the Indian compliance authority BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards), the Galaxy M02 (SM-M025F/DS) could be launched soon in the country. The upcoming smartphone also appears to have a dual-SIM card slot. Previously-leaked information suggests that the Galaxy M02 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, microSD card slot, Android 10, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, and LTE. There could also be a variant with 3GB RAM.
The Galaxy M02 and the Galaxy A02 received certification from the Bluetooth SIG a few weeks ago. Not much is known about the screen, cameras, and battery capacity of the Galaxy M02, but we expect some improvements over the Galaxy M01s that was launched a few months ago. The Galaxy M01s features a 6.2-inch HD+ display, a 13MP+2MP dual-camera setup at the rear, an 8MP selfie camera, and a 4,000mAh battery.
