Samsung Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s announced: 6.5" screens and 5,000 mAh batteries

24 November 2020
Both will go on sale next year.

Sort by:

This isn't Samsung's segment. They clearly can't compete with Umidigi or Xiaomi on specs/price.

Samsung is really slow and I think they need to
Make camera and aperture better
Faster UI (Like every single A series shows up with a splash screen like "Phone" or "Settings" and you have to wait until they open)
Faster Android and Security updates (monthly not quarterly)
And then it will be good

I think they are expensive for what they offer, especially the A02. It doesn't even come with a fingerprint sensor. I would rather go for a Xiaomi Redmi 9C or Nokia 2.4 over the A02.

Yes, yes, some may actually simply buy it because it's cheap and know fine we'll what there buying.

The A02s is quite expensive, for what it offers. At 150 euros, I would expect the Snapdragon 460. But Samsung, being greedy as usual, ignores the market reality and stubbornly relies solely on the brand.

Like Google Xiaomi did collect urls people visited with the Browser included in MIUI, but that's no longer the case (they should atleast have encrypted it properly though)

Anonymous, 24 Nov 2020these are entry level what you expect?I do not expect new model each day! That's the point. Take a look, there's over 50 new Samsungs just this year and we still have November! Okay, one of it is a Samsung Watch, but the rest are phones and tablets. Last week - three new models, all the same hardware, just different names. Why?
As much stupid as Nokia once was...

"Galaxy A12 has an octa-core processor consisting of CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 1.8GHz. Samsung doesn't say what chipset it used, but looking at the configuration it appears the smartphone is powered by the Helio P35 SoC"
That wasn't Helio G35 specs either Snapdragon 665 or Exynos 9611 .

Decent phones. My only disappointment is the screen size, but other than that it looks decent.
