Samsung lowers prices of Galaxy S10 series ahead of Huawei P30 launch

Samsung Galaxy Fold launching at T-Mobile online on April 25th, in stores April 26th This Is How Much It Costs to Repair a Samsung Galaxy S10

Hardware-wise, Samsung had to keep the price in check and differentiate it from the new Galaxy S10 series lineup, so the Galaxy A80 comes with Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 730 SoC, with dual-core 2.2GHz Kryo 460 and hexa-core 1.7GHz Kryo 460 clusters, paired up with Adreno 618 GPU, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Seoul-based company has already showcased pretty much all of its Galaxy A lineup for the first half of this year, ranging from the hero product Galaxy A80 to the affordable Galaxy A10.

The Korean technology firm remains the world's largest smartphone maker, but that position has come under increased pressure in recent months from Huawei, as well as a number of other emerging Chinese brands such as Xiaomi and Oppo, which have offered premium smartphone features at lower prices. The A70, on the other hand, will be sold for £369 (P25,071 or $484) in the United Kingdom starting April 26.

Samsung Electronics Philippines plans to release the Galaxy A70 at local retail sometime in May, we're told. It's a 6.7-inch screen with FHD plus (2400 x 1080) resolution. SImilar to the Galaxy A70 and A50 models, the Galaxy A40 also features in 3D glass build design. It shouldn't cost more than the Galaxy S10e, which will run you P39,990 ($772) in stores.

Despite major upgrades in the screen department, the Galaxy S10 fix prices aren't as high as anticipated, especially when looking at the previous models. We have to wait and see how these Galaxy A line-ups of smartphones will be accepted by the consumers globally. In our brief usage, we did find the phone to be quite snappy and responsive. It also supports microSD expansion of up to 512GB. The handset offers primary triple camera (vertically aligned) setup with 32-megapixel f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide (123 degrees) angle lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture. We didn't get a chance to test the imaging chops of the phone during our hands on, but we will surely put the phone's camera through its paces during our review.

The Galaxy A70 comes with 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy A80 won't arrive here until June, at a price that has yet to be determined. Samsung says it will be selling four colour variants of the Galaxy A70 - Coral, Blue, Black, and White, however it is unclear which of these will make it to the Indian market.

The new Galaxy A20e is supposedly a trimmed down version of the earlier released Galaxy A20 smartphone.
