Samsung Galaxy A02 India launch could take place soon as its production has reportedly started at the company’s Noida facility in Delhi-NCR. The phone launched in Thailand in January as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy A01. It joins the Galaxy A02s in the series that launched in the European market in November last year. The Samsung Galaxy A02 is an entry-level offering and comes in two RAM and storage configurations. There are four colour options for the model that launched in Thailand. It is possible that the Samsung Galaxy A02 India variant comes in different configurations or with some other tweaks.
Samsung has started the production of the Samsung Galaxy A02 at its Noida facility, according to a report by 91Mobiles, which also says that the Indian model is likely to carry the same design and specifications as the Thailand model. The Samsung Galaxy A02 was launched in Thailand in January but, as of now, Samsung has not shared any information on its Indian variant; though, we have a fair idea of what to expect from it.
