Samsung has quietly launched two of its latest budget phones in Malaysia, the Galaxy A05 and the A05s. There is no announcement in terms of pricing yet, but we know it will most likely be cheap since the Galaxy A04 is still around Rs. 32,000 in Pakistan.
That being said, here are the specifications.
Both of the new phones sport 6.7-inch LCDs, with the A05 featuring HD+ resolution and the A05s boasting a sharper 1080p resolution. The A05s is equipped with a 13MP front-facing camera housed within a subtle waterdrop notch, while the A05 features an 8MP front shooter.
In the camera department, both phones share a 50MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, complemented by a 2MP depth sensor. However, the A05s offers an additional 2MP macro shooter for close-up photography.
The significant difference lies in the chipset selection: the A05s is powered by the Snapdragon 680, while the A05 utilizes MediaTek’s Helio G85. Both phones come with a generous 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card.
On the software side, they run OneUI Core based on Android 13. Both phones are equipped with 5,000 mAh batteries and support 25W charging.
As mentioned before, there are no pricing details yet, but the phone is most likely going to cost under Rs. 40,000 in Pakistan.
