And Samsung Galaxy A02 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Samsung. This time these guys announced Samsung Galaxy A02. This is a smartphone on Android 10 in 2021.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, this model receives an update to the version Android 11. And, secondly, Samsung Galaxy A02 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Samsung Galaxy A02 it does not support work in the fifth generation networks (5G). If this is very important and necessary for you, we advise you to choose any 5G smartphone in our catalog. Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Samsung Galaxy A02 thickness 9.1 mm is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large PLS IPS touchscreen with a diagonal 6.5″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy A02 has one module: 5 MP with a regular lens. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our Samsung Galaxy A02 works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 4-core processor on the chipset Mediatek MT6739WM. The amount of RAM is 3 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 32 GB. In addition, the smartphone supports memory cards microSDXC.

Price for Samsung Galaxy A02: buy or not to buy?

So this is Samsung Galaxy A02 after the official announcement. This novelty fell into the segment of cheap of smartphones.

Buy Samsung Galaxy A02 you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  January 2021. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $100 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen and the camera is not bad, and the frontcamera is so-so.

Highly affordable Samsung Galaxy A02 announced in Thailand

The Samsung Galaxy A02 came out cheaper for two reasons that we noticed. First, the Galaxy A02 uses the MediaTek MT6739W chipset instead of the Snapdragon 450 of the Galaxy A02s. Secondly, the Galaxy A02s has a triple main camera, while the Galaxy A02 has a dual camera with 13MP + 2MP sensors.

Samsung Galaxy A02 has already started selling in Thailand for THB 2.999 (that’s about $100/€82). It is not yet known when it will be available in other countries.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
