Samsung Galaxy A01 Specs and Price

Samsung Galaxy A01

The Samsung Galaxy A01 is the smallest member of the A-series family in terms of specs and price. One of the big advantages of this phone is that despite being an entry-level, it runs on the full Android 10 operating system as opposed to the Go edition which is more restricted. In this post, we’ll be looking at the full specs and features of the device with also the pricing in the Nigerian market.

The smartphone has a sleek design which is made with comfort in mind. Irrespective of the colour choice, they all have the modern-day matte finish. The device measures a slender 8.3 mm in thickness and fits comfortably in your hand. It is also light in weight at just 149 grams. The body colour options available are Black, Blue and Red. At the front side of the phone, we have a waterdrop notch which eats into the small-size display and below that is a thick chin. There is no fingerprint reader at the back or elsewhere on the phone. The back is home to a dual camera. 


The Galaxy A01 features an Infinity-V screen. The 5.7″ TFT display allows for a bigger view and an immersive experience. It features a 720 x 1560 pixels resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio and 301 PPI density. 

Hardware and Software

Powering the Samsung Galaxy A01 is the Snapdragon 439 SoC. The chipset features an Octa-core 1.95 GHz processor and Adreno 505 GPU. Memory configuration available here is a 2GB RAM with 16GB storage. Additional storage is also possible via a dedicated microSD slot. The budget phone runs on Android 10 with One UI 2.0 custom skin.


The entry-level comes with a dual camera which isn’t common these days as devices sports 3-4 cameras at the back. The camera setup here is a 13MP f/2.2 wide-angle lens and a 2MP f/2.4 depth lens with Live Focus. Inside the waterdrop notch is a 5MP f/2.2 selfie camera with selfie focus and selfie timer.


The Galaxy A01 packs a decent 3,000 mAh battery capacity. There is no fast charging technology available not that we expected it considering the price segment.
