The Samsung Galaxy A series has been quite popular in 2019, and several models were released, including the popular A71 and A51, which are mid-range smartphones that blend performance and affordability.
A new device joins the range in the form of the Samsung Galaxy A01, which aims to compete against affordable models offered by Xiaomi and Realme. The competition is quite harsh as both manufacturers offer a rich selection of devices at an accessible price.
Samsung Galaxy A01 – Specs and Features
The Samsung Galaxy A01 will retain core features from the Galaxy M range. It comes with a 5.7-inch Infinity-V LCD panel that offers a reasonable 720p HD+ resolution. While the bezels are quite narrow, the device does sport a generous chin.
On the rear, we can find a dual-camera setup which features a 13MP primary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The secondary sensor is a 2MP depth-sensing camera with an aperture of f/2.4. It is said that users can record videos at 1080p. The waterdrop notch present on the front packs a 5MP sensor with an f/2.4 aperture.
At this point, the processor remains a mystery. It is known that the device will be powered by an octa-core chipset with four performance cores that are clocked at 1.95 GHz while four efficiency cores are clocked at 1.45 GHz. Two versions will be available, one with 6GB of RAM and one with 8GB of RAM. Both versions will offer 128GB of built-in storage.
A significant highlight is the presence of a MicroSD slot that supports card with a maximum capacity of up to 512GB. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is also present for those who prefer classic wired accessories. The device will also offer an FM radio module, and proximity and light sensors. It will also provide standards like dual VoLTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Three color options will be available. The price will be announced at a later date.
