Another crazy affordable Samsung phone with great specs.
In China, the 32 GB model retails at USD 335 and the 64 GB model is priced at USD 366 only. Out of straight conversion without taxes and duties yet, that's just around 15K and 17K in Philippine Pesos respectively.
Let's hope that once those phones reaches us, there won't be that much price hike as this has the potential to be one of those must get midrange phones soon.
