Samsung launches the Galaxy M02s budget smartphone in India
In just a week, Samsung will host its first Galaxy Unpacked event for 2021 and unveil the all-new Galaxy S21 series. But the next-gen flagships won’t be the first devices launched by the South Korean manufacturer this year. That is an honor reserved for a device on the opposite end of the spectrum — the Galaxy M02s.

The new Samsung Galaxy M02s is a successor to the Galaxy M01s from last year, and it comes with an updated design that falls in line with other recently launched Galaxy M series devices. It offers modest specifications, including a Snapdragon 450 SoC, a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch, up to 4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of onboard storage.
For photography, the Galaxy Mo2s offers a triple-camera setup on the back that includes a 13MP primary sensor, a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots, and a 2MP macro sensor. Over on the front, it has a single 5MP selfie shooter. Powering the device is a massive 5,000mAh battery, which features 15W fast charging support.
As with other entry-level smartphones in the market today, the Galaxy M02s comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB port. However, unlike its predecessor, the Galaxy M02s doesn’t feature a fingerprint scanner. Finally, on the software front, the Galaxy M02 runs Samsung’s One UI skin based on Android 10.
