LG is releasing the Optimus 2X this week with a suggested price of Php27,990. Samsung Philippines has yet to launched the Galaxy S2 but we’re expecting Globe to release it exclusively for at least a month, just like the first SGS.
If the Galaxy S2 hits the Php32k mark, it will be competitive though we hope it will be lower. My money is on Php29,990.
