Samsung unveils Galaxy A12 and A02S – budget smartphones with large screens, multiple cameras and capacious batteries


Samsung has unveiled two new entry-level Android smartphones, the Galaxy A12 and A02S, which will go on sale in Europe next year.

The Galaxy A12 smartphone will replace the Galaxy A11 model. The device features a 6.5-inch HD + Infinity-V display with a notch at the top for an 8MP selfie camera, a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 5000mAh battery … Samsung did not specify which processor is used, but judging by the configuration, we are talking about a system-on-a-chip Helio P35. The smartphone will be available with 3, 4 or 6 GB of RAM and a flash drive with a capacity of 32, 64 or 128 GB. There is also a slot for microSD memory cards up to 1 TB.

The main camera of the Galaxy A12 uses four modules, including the main 48-megapixel sensor, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro shooting and scene depth detection.

The smartphone will be available in four colors: black, white, blue and red. Sales of new items will begin in January 2021. The model with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory will cost € 179. The Galaxy A12 version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory will cost € 199.

The second smartphone, Galaxy A02S, has the same display as the Galaxy A12, but its RAM is only 3 GB, and the capacity of the flash drive is limited to 32 GB. However, the storage capacity can be expanded thanks to a microSD card slot up to 1 TB. The clock speed of the eight-core smartphone processor is 1.8 GHz.

The Galaxy A02S specs include a 5MP front camera housed in the notch at the top of the screen, and a triple rear camera with a 13MP main sensor and two 2MP sensors for macro and depth sensing.

The battery capacity with support for 15-W charging, like the Galaxy A12, is 5000 mAh.

The Galaxy A02S smartphone will be available in white, black, red and blue. Sales of the device will start in February 2021 at a price of € 150.
