We were looking for Galaxy F62 and Galaxy E62 listings on Samsung Philippines’ website, but came across something else. But it’s yet another unannounced smartphone.
We’re referring to the Samsung Galaxy A02, which is a different unit from the Galaxy A02s that just became available in the country alongside the Galaxy A12. It’s most likely the successor to the Galaxy A01, which debuted locally with a price tag of P5,490 (roughly 114) in February last year.
Below is the support page for the Samsung Galaxy A02 on its Philippine site, indicating that the entry-level phone will be launched here. But probably not soon, as it does not even have a product page yet.
How do we know that the device with model number SM-A022F/DS is the Samsung Galaxy A02? Well, we remembered India-based technology site GizmoChina‘s article about it. Apparently, the handset already showed up on the website of standards organization Bluetooth SIG [Special Interest Group] bearing the following model numbers:
Ours has the term “DS,” so the variant that will be released in the Philippines has support for two SIM cards.
Based on previous leaks, the Galaxy A02 supposedly features a MediaTek MT6739WW chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 5,000mAh battery, and Android 10. It notched benchmark scores of 105 and 332 in the single- and multi-core tests on Geekbench — scores that are consistent with those of budget phones.
