Some evidence of Samsung's next-gen super-budget smartphones has appeared in a new tip. It concerns a phone thought to be called the Galaxy A02s, which appears to be a 3GB RAM version of the also-rumored Galaxy A02. Oddly, however, the new benchmarking leaks for both possible phones lack SoC data.

Samsung started the Galaxy A0x line in 2020, offering 5.7-inch displays and dual cameras for about US$110. Now, there is evidence that the OEM will provide it with a second generation. This potential Galaxy A02 may have appeared on Geekbench as the SM-A025F, revealing that it may pack 3GB of RAM and Android 10 (whereas the A01 has 2GB).

Now, it seems that this phone - which may be rebranded as the Galaxy M02 in some markets - has another AXXs variant. This is indicated by another bemchmarking result for the SM-A025G, a device that appears to have very similar specs.

It would be nice to put more weight behind this emerging "Galaxy A02s" theory with a processor that it and the putative A02 have in common. However, according to Geekbench, both devices exhibit "QC_Reference_Phone" in this field of the information detected for them, rather than a code-name or number that could better drive speculation about this SoC.

However, it could be said with some certainty that this 1.8GHz unnamed chipset comes from Qualcomm, and that it has 8 cores. This has sparked rumors that it is in fact the Snapdragon 450. However, it may be some time before this is confirmed with the launch of the new cost-effective phones in question.
