If you are not too keen on the idea of buying a new Samsung phone at a price of at least $1,000 or more, then the company has some serious good news for you. Samsung announced on Wednesday that it is about to launch a new range of entry level low-priced phones that will have a price tag of around $100 to $500.
So, what do you have to let go for that price range? Well, there will be lower resolution screens, lower battery backup, and no presence of a couple of modern features like wireless charging. For the consumers who want a low cost device for making calls, sending texting, having access to their emails and their internet, this can be the perfect option.
Coming to the specifications, this entry-level phone, named Galaxy A01, comes with a 5.7 inch screen. The storage is pretty small at sixteen GB, and it has two cameras as usual, one at the front and the other at the back.
Galaxy A01 comes after its predecessor, Galaxy A10E, was sold for a price tag of $159.99 while having a 5.8 inch screen and 32 GB storage. Though Galaxy A10E was sold in America, it was not really marketed with the spirit as the high-end Galaxy S phones. Most sales of the Galaxy A line were in Africa, Asia, and Europe. In comparison, the Galaxy S 2020 by Samsung, which came to the market in February, had a starting price of $999 for S20 5G, $1,199 for S20+5G, and $1,400 for S20 Ultra.
Apart from Samsung, even Apple is slated to bring out a new and low-price alternative of their high-end iPhones. The new iPhone SE is supposed to come with a 4.7 inch screen and launched this year.
