Samsung kickstarts 2021 with the launch of the Galaxy M02s, another entry in the brand's ever-popular Galaxy M Series. It arrives only six months after the Galaxy M01s made its debut in the Indian market.
Samsung says that the Galaxy M02s is the brand's first smartphone in the sub-10k segment to feature a Triple rear camera setup and a 5,000mAh battery. The camera setup comprises a 13MP primary shooter and two 2MP macro and depth sensors, and the battery comes with 15W fast charging support.
The phone is built around a 6.5-inch Infinity-V HD+ display with a waterdrop notch up top – housing a 5MP selfie shooter – and a sizeable chin at the bottom. Moreover, it comes powered by a Snapdragon 450 chipset, which is paired with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of expandable internal storage.
Other highlights of the Galaxy M02s include a haze and matt textured plastic back, a proprietary 3.5mm audio jack, and an Android 10-based Samsung One UI operating system. It does, however, miss out on a dedicated capacitive fingerprint scanner.
Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy M02s price in India starts at ₹8,999 for the base 3GB+32GB version. The higher-end 4GB+64GB version, on the other hand, is priced at ₹9,999. The phone is available in three colours – black, blue, and red. Samsung has not announced the availability of the smartphone just yet, but we expect it to arrive very soon on Samsung's online store, Amazon, and key retail outlets.
