The Galaxy M02s is said to pack in a number of features that will be a first for Samsung in the sub-10K price bracket and is touted at a ‘Max Up’ phone.
While we don’t have all the information at our disposal, there are a few things that the phone is confirmed to get. The Galaxy M02s will come with a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V display, which is Samsung’s name given to a waterdrop notched screen. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, however, there is no word on what processor it will be. The device will get 4GB of RAM for enhanced and easy usage, multi-tasking, and gaming. It will also be backed by a 5,000mAh battery for longer usage.
If you compare the upcoming Galaxy M02s with the Galaxy M01s, the phone is a sure upgrade to 3GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, and a MediaTek processor seen on the latter.
For those who don’t know, the Galaxy M02s was recently spotted on Google Play with a codename ‘A02q,’ similar to the Galaxy A02s’ codename. This gives us an inkling that the Galaxy M02s will be none other than a rebranded version of the Galaxy A02s but with few upgrades.
To recall, the Galaxy A02s was launched in November last year. It comes with a 6.5-inch display, a 5,000mAh battery, triple rear cameras (13-megapixel, 2-megapixel, 2-megapixel), a 5-megapixel front camera, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage.
