Galaxy A01 platform performance
In the past, Samsung would very rarely install the latest software updates on budget smartphones, and sometimes even mid ranges. So when we say it is a miracle the Galaxy A01 is powered by the latest software update then those who know this fact for sure can bear witness that we do not speak lightly. By the latest updates I mean first, it runs Android 10.0 which as at the time of its release was the case. Then I am also referring to One UI 2 which is Samsung’s new and improved skin over stock Android. Coming with a budget smartphone I see no better way the company can wish us a Happy New Year than this.
Still with the platform but now with respect to internal storage we see a 16GB 2GB RAM Galaxy A01. This internal storage is acceptable for the phone’s price. The good news is that it can be expanded using a microSD up to 512 GB. There is a dedicated slot for that. By the way, powering this phone is an Octa-core (4×1.95 GHz & 4×1.45 GHz) CPU.
Infinity – V Display
Shortly and very quickly know that Samsung basically refers to the notch wherein lies the selfie camera when it calls the display of Galaxy A01 Infinity – V Display. This notch has been implemented on a 5.7 inches display panel which makes this one among the most compact smartphones of recent times. Its resolution is 720 x 1560 pixels. Fine although bezels have not been completely done away with here we must agree that a large portion of the display estate has been left for users to enjoy. And giving this phone a notch shows for it even further. Infinity – V is a thing Samsung fans have continually adopted to and loved. And now we also see it on Galaxy A01.
The camera of Galaxy A01
So on the back panel, you will notice two camera lenses (again, on a budget smartphone). Samsung has gone all out by adding on a 2 MP depth sensor alongside the main 13 MP, f/2.2, 28mm main, and wide shooting lens. I dare say the performance here is perfect especially with portrait mode – thanks to the 2MP depth sensor. With some little adjustments here and there with good lighting conditions, Galaxy A01 will shoot some pretty decent images even with its 5MP selfie camera. All you need to do is master the art. Be also informed that the video recording is 1080p@30fps here.
Here we fancy Samsung Galaxy A01 in Black. But you can also get this affordable Samsung smartphone in either Blue or Red. The power of choice is in your hands. Buy it with us today.
