Samsung has quietly launched a new entry-level smartphone – Galaxy A01. This is an addition to its A series collections.
The phone features a 5.7-inch Infinity-V display, meaning that the 5MP selfie camera lives in a notch. The display has an LCD panel with 720p+ resolution and rounded corners.
Around the back there’s a 13MP main camera and its 2MP depth sensor. There’s no official confirmation, but we’ll venture a guess and say it records 1080p video.
The Galaxy A01 is powered by an unnamed chipset with an octa-core processor. We expect it to be an entry-level chip, but the memory configuration is pretty upscale. The phone comes with 6GB of RAM as standard with an 8GB option.
Also, it has 128GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded by up to 512GB more via a microSD card. The card slot has a dedicated spot for the microSD, so you can make full use of the dual SIM functionality.
A 3.5mm headphone jack on top of the phone along with an FM radio receiver can provide some free entertainment. The phone uses a 3,000mAh battery, details like charging speed are yet to be revealed.
