Samsung Launches Its Most Affordable Galaxy A-Series Phone

Samsung has quietly unveiled a new entry-level device that offers a 5.7-inch HD+ screen, 16GB of storage and a 3000 mAh battery capacity with an expected price of no more than $120-$150.

The Galaxy A01 flaunts a 5.7-inch, Infinity-V, IPS LCD display with HD+ screen resolution. There is a waterdrop notch at the top, average side bezels, and significantly larger chin at the bottom. There appears to be no fingerprint scanner anywhere on the device.

The notch at the top holds a 5-megapixel selfie camera and the dual primary camera setup features a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2MP secondary depth sensor unit for portrait shots. There are no more details available on these camera sensors yet, but they are expected to be capable of 1080p video recording.

The chipset of this device is currently unknown (likely an entry-level SoC), but it holds an octa-core processor with up to 2GB RAM and 16GB storage space that is further expandable via a microSD card.

Battery capacity on the phone is 3000 mAh and charging speeds are yet to be revealed.

There is also no word on availability yet, but once it arrives, the Galaxy A01 is expected to cost no more than $150.

  • Description me likha hai 2GB, 16GB aur neechay specs me lika hai 6/8GB, 128GB
    Kia ho rha hai ye?
    Whatmobile pe b 8GB, 128GB likha aa rha hai!
    So confusing….

    • The phone originally appeared on Samsung’s website with 8GB/128GB configuration and everyone including gsmarena covered the news accordingly.

      It was later changed to 2GB/16GB, which honestly makes more sense considering it is only an entry level phone. It was probably a mistake on Samsung’s end. 8GB/128GB is clearly too high for a budget phone.
