A 3,000mAh Battery

Generally, the Samsung A02 processor offers good overall performance, and you don’t expect any lag even when playing the most demanding games.
Dual Rear 13MP Camera
The Sunking smartphone features a 13MP main camera with a 2MP depth sensor and a 5MP selfie camera.

The Smartphone’s front camera gives you an assurance of awesome selfies every time, without the need for any edits.
