In Phonesby Alora Uy GuerreroLeave a Comment

And they’re official. Samsung’s latest A series phones, whose respective local prices have been the subject of unconfirmed reports, have finally been launched in the Philippines.

True enough, the Samsung Galaxy A30 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage is retailing at P13,990 (around $265) while the higher-end Samsung Galaxy A50 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage is selling for P17,990 ($341). That’s aggressive pricing right there, especially if you take into account the Korean manufacturer’s previous strategy. “Samsung” and “value for money” usually didn’t go together before.
