Samsung is definitely not giving up on the economic smartphone market with its Galaxy A series. The South Korean tech giant has now confirmed the starting price point of one of its devices, the Galaxy A03 which is expected to be available for purchase starting from next week.
The device in question was announced back in Nov. 2021 with a design tweak and enhanced specs to make it competitive.
According to a report, the base model Samsung Galaxy A03 is expected to be sold for US$130.
The device will be available for purchase in Vietnam starting from Jan. 10th and will come in two variants – 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Both models will be priced at US$131 (VND 2,990,000) and US$153 (VND 3,490,000) respectively. Color options vary from black, dark green, and red.
According to the same report, the device will be made available with an installment plan with zero percent interest, also without any upfront fee starting from Jan. 10th and Feb. 28th in Vietnam.
Anyone who buys the Galaxy A03 before Feb. 15th will get a voucher price of US$9 (VND 200,000) and will stand a chance of getting the Galaxy Fit 2 with the smartphone for only VND500,000 extra.
Assuming you’re making the purchase of the Galaxy Fit sans the voucher, you’ll have to pay between US$33 (VND 750,000) and US$42 (VND 950,000).
