Recently the Samsung Galaxy S2 was announced (and reported here) at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, however, nothing was known about the price of the Smartphone. Now we do!
I visited Expansys Hong Kong, an online gadget retailer, and found out that they are accepting pre-orders to the Samsung Galaxy S2 at whooping price of HK$ 8,150 which is roughly about P46,000 and $1,050 (USD). That’s roughly the price of the Apple iPhone 4, the 32GB version.
Expect to see grey units of the device later next month in local stores. However, the price would be a few thousand pesos more, perhaps between P47,000 – P48,000.
Personally, I find the price to be alarming especially if their competitor’s product, the LG Optimus 2X, is priced at only at P32,000. I’ll give it a few months until the price gets lowered, though, we’ll probably see a dozen or so new phones with better specifications. Perhaps a quad core Smartphone?
What do you think? Is the Samsung Galaxy S2 worth the price for a Dual core 1GHZ with a SUPER AMOLED Plus screen and 1GB of RAM? Send us your comments!
