Announcement. Samsung Galaxy F02s is another obscure smartphone for India

Again, a not very clear announcement from Samsung. And again for India.

Samsung Galaxy F02s is a copy of anotherThe "Indian" Samsung Galaxy M02s, as well as the Samsung Galaxy A02s smartphone sold in Russia. The difference is only visible in the colors. Well, and, possibly, in the supported frequencies - but for the "Indians" they are not indicated.

The smartphone is very weak by modern standards.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset has already been announcedin mid-2017 and even then it was positioned as a chip for budget devices. The peak of popularity is 2018. The power is only in the region of 90 thousand AnTuTu8 parrots. By modern standards, it is catastrophically small.

Memory 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of permanent. There is support for memory cards, the tray is separate.

The screen is large, 6.5 ″, PLS-matrix. HD + resolution, 720 × 1600 (270 ppi). Not high, although it can be worse.

But with the battery, everything is fine. 5000 mAh, even moderately fast charging is supported - 15 W.

The cameras are quite modest. Front camera 5 MP. Behind the trio 13 + 2 + 2 MP (main module, macro, depth sensor). Taking into account the price and low-power hardware, you don't have to expect much from the cameras.

No gyroscope, no NFC, no fingerprint scanner, no dual-band Wi-Fi.

In short, everything is sad.

Price. ₹ 8999 (₽9340, $ 123) for the younger version 3 + 32 GB and ₹ 9999 (₽10400, $ 136) for 4 + 64 GB. For comparison, Samsung Galaxy A02s costs ₽10,490 ($ 138) in Russia for the 3 + 32 GB version.
