While all eyes are on the currently-up-for-preorder Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, there’s actually another Galaxy phone that’s confirmed to go on sale in the Philippines.
(Update, January 11: We now know how much the Samsung Galaxy A03 is in the Philippines!)
Globally announced end-November 2021, the Samsung Galaxy A03 is already up at the Korean manufacturer’s official online store. The local listing doesn’t reveal any price yet. But because the 3GB/32GB version of its predecessor, the Galaxy A02, cost P4,990 (roughly $97 converted) at launch here in the Philippines, we expect the A03 to retail under P10,000 (under $195), too. Understand that the A03 will go on sale in Vietnam as well — from ₫2,990,000 (P6,764) starting January 10.
We see that two memory configurations will be available in the country: 3GB/32GB and 4GB/128GB. And that the budget handset will come in red, blue, and black colors — take your pick.
The Samsung Galaxy A03 features a 48-megapixel main camera paired with a 2-megapixel one for depth-sensing shots. The screen measures 6.5 inches, comes with a 60Hz refresh rate, and houses a 5-megapixel selfie sensor in its waterdrop-style cutout. Powering the smartphone is a Unisoc T606 chip, and keeping its lights on is a 5,000mAh battery. On top of Samsung‘s own user interface is Android 11.
