Early next year, in January and February, it will be time for two brand new smartphones from Samsung. Currently, there are also rumors that the Galaxy S21 will see the light of day around the same time, but that is not yet certain. What is true is that in January 2021 the Galaxy A12 is going to appear and in February the Galaxy A02s.
Also, Samsung has already put the list of specifications on the table, but we still have to wait a while for pricing. Both devices are part of the A-line so the prices could be quite high, but who knows, maybe Samsung has a surprise in store for us.
This device gets a 6.5" HD+ TFT display with the Infinity-V setup. The selfie camera is eight megapixels and on the back there are four cameras, with the main camera having 48 megapixels, a five megapixel ultra wide, two megapixel macro lens and last but not least a two megapixel depth lens. The A12 has an Octa Core processor with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage capacity and a micro SD card slot that allows you to expand the memory to 1TB. The battery has 5000 mAh and can be charged at 15W.
Samsung's second new device, like the Galaxy A12, features a 6.5" HD+ TFT display. The specifications of this device are slightly less, and thus becomes the cheaper model of the two. However, this device also has a 5000 mAh battery and certainly a fine camera system as well. The selfie camera has five megapixels and three cameras can be found on the back. These consist of a 13 megapixel main camera, two megapixel macro lens and a two megapixel depth lens. The Galaxy A02s has an Octa Core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage capacity that is also expandable with a micro SD card.
Aside from the news of these two new A devices, there is also bad news for Galaxy Note fans. Namely, it looks like Samsung is going to pull the plug on Galaxy Note devices in 2021. With the expected Galaxy Z Fold 3 plus the addition of the S Pen in the upcoming Galaxy s21 Ultra, it seems that there is no more room for Note devices. The addition of the S Pen in devices other than the Galaxy Note indicates that Samsung is now removing the distinctive factor of the Note. Previously, the Note devices were also Samsung's most powerful and largest devices, but anno 2020 that is no longer the case either. So it looks like Samsung is going to focus on the S series and the Z Fold series. Time will tell!
