Samsung introduced a new affordable smartphone called Galaxy M02s. It will debut in India with a starting price of INR8,999 ($122) and will come with an octa-core CPU, a big battery, and three cameras on its back.
The Galaxy M02s is powered by the Snapdragon 450 chipset. The 3.5-year-old platform is built on the 14nm process and offers an octa-core Cortex-A55 CPU running at 1.8GHz. It is coupled with either 3GB RAM and 32GB storage in the base version or 4/64 GB in the more upscale model. There is a microSD slot for up to 1 TB more of storage.
The front panel of the phone is a 6.5” HD+ LCD with an Infinity-V notch for the 5 MP f/2.2 selfie shooter. The triple camera combo on the back brings a 13MP main unit and a couple of 2MP sensors for macro and depth.
While those numbers aren't particularly inspiring, the battery capacity is something to be jolly about - the 5,000mAh unit supports 15W fast charging through a USB-C port.
Samsung is selling the Galaxy M02s with a dual-SIM slot with dual 4G VoLTE support, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. There’s also a 3.5 mm audio jack and an FM radio. The interface is Samsung One, based on Android 10.
The phone will be sold at Amazon India and Samsung’s own website in three colors - Red, Blue, Black. The launch date will be announced soon.
I bought a Poco M3 (4/64GB) for $110 and got a 10Ah power bank for free. Obviously the price depends on your country, but it can be had for very cheap in some countries.
samsung can use Snapdragon 460 it will work well in budget segment, 450 is old chipset.
