Samsung Galaxy F02s Overview
Samsung F02s is indeed a rebranded version of the M02s. It has a triple camera setup with a rectangular camera module. We have seen this design on most of the old A series and M series smartphones.
On the front, it has a drop notch. Interestingly, it does not have a fingerprint sensor.
As for the display, it is rocking the same 6.5 inch IPS panel used on the Samsung M02s. The screen resolution is HD+.
Samsung F02s is equipped with Snapdragon 450 chipset along with 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB internal storage.
Snapdragon 450 chipset has Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and Adreno 506 GPU. Snapdragon 450 is an old budget chipset but it does bring upgrades if we compare it to the Helio P22 used on the M01s.
This chipset can provide decent performance for general tasks but it is not good enough for gaming.
Along with that, F02s has a USB Type-C port for charging.
Samsung F02s has 3 cameras with a 13MP main sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor.
On the front, it has a single 5MP sensor for selfies.
Just like the M02s, F02s comes with a 5000 mAh battery along with 15W fast charging.
Furthermore, it runs on Android 10 with One UI Core.
Samsung F02s Price in Nepal and Availability
Samsung Galaxy F02s is priced at INR 8,999 (~NPR 14,135) for the 3/32GB variant. It might not launch in Nepal given it is an exact copy of the Samsung M02s.
Well, Samsung F02s is an entry-level budget phone from Samsung that replicates the M-series. It offers an older chipset and the camera setup looks ordinary. But the major disappointment is the omission of the fingerprint sensor.
