The Samsung Galaxy F02s, Samsung Galaxy M02s and Samsung Galaxy A12 saw an increase in price in India. The three Samsung smartphones are now Rs. 500 more expensive through their variants. Samsung has not released an official statement announcing the increase in price, but the new prices for the three handsets are now reflected on the Samsung India website. It is assumed that the increase in price is due to the global chip shortage that has affected almost all of the major manufacturers. Samsung launched the Galaxy F02, Galaxy M02, and Galaxy A12 in 2021 as economic devices.
