Samsung have just announced the Galaxy M01s in India. The device is obviously the higher version of the vanilla M01 launched back in June, and thankfully, it brings some of the needed but missing features in the older variant.
First, the new comer has a bigger dew-drop display raised to the tone of 6.2-inches, instead of the 5.71″ used in the older variant. But not just that, it also adds a rear placed fingerprint scanner which was not present in the older M01.
Surprisingly, Samsung opted for the Mediatek Helio P22 on the M01s as a replacement for the Snapdragon 439 CPU used in the M01. The rear camera is same 13 MP + 2 MP used in the older version, but the selfie snapper got aced to 8-megapixel lens.
Finally, the OS is switched from Android 10 with One UI 2.0 to Android 9.0 (Pie) with One UI Core v1.1. It has dual 4G SIMs and fueled by a larger 4000mAh battery.
