Samsung confirmed today that it will be unveiling the Galaxy M02s entry-level phone at 1 PM on Jan. 7 in India. The landing page of the phone is now live on Samsung India’s website. The listing has confirmed some of the key features of the device.
The microsite of the Galaxy M02s has revealed that Samsung has a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch. The device is powered by an unknown Snapdragon chipset.
According to the South Korean tech giant, the Galaxy M02s will be its first sub-Rs 10,000 ($137) priced smartphone with 4 GB of RAM. The device is fueled by a 5,000mAh battery. The back panel of the phone seems to be made from a polycarbonate material and it appears to be fitted with a triple camera system.
In October, a Samsung phone with an SM-M025F model number was spotted in a listing on Google Play supported devices. The handset was spotted with the “a02q” codename, which also belongs to the Galaxy A02s phone that debuted in November. Hence, it appears that the Galaxy M02s could be a rebadged edition of the A02s.
There is a possibility that the upcoming Galaxy M02s could be borrowing a couple of features from the A02s phone. It is likely that the Galaxy M02s could be powered by the Snapdragon 450 chipset. The M02s may feature a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel (depth) + 2-megapixel (macro) and a 5-megapixel selfie camera.
It remains to be seen whether the M02s will arrive preloaded with the latest Android 11 OS phone. The M02s will be replacing the Galaxy M01s that debuted in India with a pricing of Rs 9,999 in July 2019. Hence, it’s likely that the upcoming M02s could be coming with the same price tag.
