Samsung Galaxy M02s Features, Specs
The Galaxy M02s, which is a successor to the Galaxy M01s, is the ‘Max Up’ phone by the company, aiming to provide a display, processor, and battery for a power-packed usage offered by a device in the sub-10K price segment.
It comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V display with a waterdrop notch in the middle of the top portion. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. As mentioned previously, it gets two RAM/Storage variants: 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB, both options being expandable up to 1TB via a memory card.
On the camera front, the Galaxy M02s gets triple rear cameras, an upgrade from the dual rear cameras seen on the Galaxy M01s. There is a 13-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The front camera stands at 5-megapixel and supports Selfie Focus and Live Beauty feature.
The device is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging and runs Samsung One UI based on Android 10. Additionally, it gets connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and USB Type-C port.
However, it lacks any fingerprint scanner or facial recognition and users will have to use a PIN or password to protect the device. This appears more like a downside since rivals such as the Realme C15 and the Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime offer a fingerprint scanner.
