Inexpensive Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s will start selling after the New Year
Samsung Electronics unveiled the first smartphones of its 2021 lineup. They are the inexpensive Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s.
The Galaxy A12 will hit European shelves in January for €179 for the 64GB version and €199 for the 128GB version. Galaxy A02s will start selling even later — only in February. The price will be 150 euros.
The Galaxy A12 features a 6.5-inch HD + TFT screen, an 8-megapixel waterdrop notch front camera, a quadruple rear camera with a 48-megapixel main sensor, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, a 2-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh and supports 15W charging.
The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. The hardware is based on an unnamed eight-core SoC clocked at up to 2.3 Hz, presumably MediaTek Helio P35. From 3 to 6 GB of RAM and 32, 64, or 128 GB of internal flash memory. Dimensions are 164 × 75.8 × 8.9 mm and weight is 205 g.
The Galaxy A02s lacks a fingerprint scanner. Other differences include a 5MP front camera, a triple camera with 13MP, 2MP and 2MP sensors, an eight-core SoC 1.8Hz (possibly Snapdragon 450), only 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of flash.
