Alongside the anticipated Galaxy A12, Samsung also launched the Galaxy A02s. It comes as a surprise since the company hasn’t released A02, to begin with, which would’ve been the successor to the Galaxy A01. And usually, we see an ‘s’ variant only after the vanilla model. Putting that aside, let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Samsung Galaxy A02s in Nepal.

Samsung Galaxy A02s Overview

Design and Display

Like the A21, the new Samsung Galaxy A02s sports a 6.5-inch TFT panel, which is bigger than the 5.7-inch panel on the A01. As expected, it is an HD+ panel with an Infinity-V notch that houses the front camera.

At the back, there is a rectangular camera module that encloses the triple camera setup. The device lacks a fingerprint sensor. Thus, the rear panel is clean except for the Samsung branding towards the bottom of the device.

Performance and Memory

Samsung Galaxy A02s is powered by an unspecified SoC. But we do know that it is an octa-core processor with a clock speed of up to 1.8GHz. However, the clock speed points particularly to Snapdragon 450. This entry-level SoC from Qualcomm features eight Cortex-A53 cores with a maximum clock speed of up to 1.8GHz.

The phone comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The latter can be expanded up to 1TB using an external MicroSD card.


Galaxy A02s flaunts a triple camera setup on the back. It is not a major upgrade as Samsung has added a 2MP macro sensor to the A01’s dual-camera setup. The other two sensors have remained the same. We are talking about a 13MP primary camera joined by a 2MP depth sensor. Samsung also didn’t upgrade the 5MP selfie camera.

Rest of the specs

The biggest upgrade is in the battery. Galaxy A02s now features a massive 5,000mAh battery compared to 3,000mAh in its predecessor. The device also supports 15W charging. It will be available in two color options – Black and White.

Samsung Galaxy A02s Price in Nepal and Availability

Samsung A02s will go on sale in Europe starting in February, where its price will be €150 for the 3+32GB variant. We expect the price of Samsung Galaxy A02s in Nepal to be around NPR 22,000 when it launched later on.
