Putting an end to the leaks and rumors, Samsung has officially unveiled its next-gen budget-centric Samsung Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s smartphones in Europe as the premier members of its Galaxy A (2021) line-up.
The Galaxy A12 is the successor of the Galaxy A11, which was introduced earlier this year. It packs a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V display housing an 8MP selfie shooter at the top. Further, the smartphone features a quad-camera setup at the rear, including a 48MP primary sensor, 5MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Moreover, the phone comes powered by an octa-core chipset with CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 1.8GHz respectively. It's surprising to see that Samsung has not specified the chipset powering the A12. It is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable built-in storage.
Besides that, the phone features a 5,000mAh battery with support for 15W charging speeds via USB-C, and it gets a side-mounted fingerprint scanner along with a 3.5mm audio jack. Samsung has priced the Galaxy A12 at €179 (roughly ₹15,724) for the 3GB+32GB variant, going all the way up to €199 (roughly ₹17,481) for the 6GB+128GB variant. It will be available in four colours – black, white, blue, and red – starting from January 2021 in Europe.
The Galaxy A02s succeeds the Galaxy A01 from last year. It, too, packs a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V display, which, then, houses a 5MP selfie snapper inside the notch. At the rear, you get a 13MP primary camera joined by a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth unit.
Powering the Galaxy A02s, too, is an undisclosed octa-core chipset clocked at up to 1.8GHz. It is paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Just like its bigger sibling, it also gets a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging via USB-C.
The Galaxy A02s comes in a single 3GB+32GB variant, which is priced at €150 (roughly ₹13,177). It will be available from February 2021 in Europe in two colours, namely black and white.
