Samsung has launched its latest entry-level smartphone Galaxy M02 in India. The phone is successor of the Galaxy M01 which was launched in June last year. It is a rebranded Galaxy A02 that was launched in Thailand last week.
The Samsung Galaxy M02 features a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD Infinity-V display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. Its body is made of polycarbonate with patterns on the back so it doesn’t attract fingerprints and provide comfortable grip.

The handset packs a 5,000mAh battery which supports standard 10W charging. There is dual-rear camera setup at the back with a 13MP primary lens and a 2MP macro sensor while on the front you get a 5MP shooter.
