Budget Samsung phone to arrive with 8GB storage, Android KitKat at Php4.5K

Samsung may be on its way to make Android KitKat available for an entry-level device. It’s been reported that they shipped a smartphone (model SM-G350E) to India for testing purposes. It runs the latest OS and has 8GB of internal storage space, and will also be positioned at an affordable price of $103 or Php4,500.

Along with a friendly price tag, it comes with the following specs:

4.3-inch display
1.2GHz dual-core processor
1GB RAM
8GB internal storage
5MP rear camera with autofocus
HD video recording
VGA front camera
Dual-SIM capable
Android 4.4 KitKat


 




If you’d notice, the specs above kind of resembles the specs of the entry-level Motorola Moto E – right from its 4.3-inch display, dual-core processor, RAM, pixel count of camera, OS, down to the price (Moto E is expected to arrive for $105). They are clearly aiming to not make Motorola get all the attention when it comes to entry-level devices with decent specs.

Samsung’s upcoming smartphone could very well be the most affordable handset that runs on Android KitKat right out of the box with its $103 price tag

Watch out, Motorola!

      Good choice dude! You’re saying no to bloatware and touchwiz feces! :D

    • James Stark says:

      oh… Samsung is 500x better than moto fyi. Touchwiz feces? Oo, yung mukha mo mukhang feces. Bwahaha. Hampaslupa.

    • BranStark says:

      Touchwiz, yuck! Maganda sana yan kung purong Android tulad ng Moto E. Di pa sila mahihirapan mag update. Di tulad ng ginawa nila sa S3 na inabadona na dahil 1GB (.??????) lang umano. Bili daw kayo bago.

    • capscom0227 says:

      kahit pa mataas ang inaadvertise na specs ng mga samsung phones, tingnan niyo ung kinakain na resources ng touchwiz…kahit na 2gb ang ram ng phone, ilang mb na lang ang natitira para magamit ng apps…mas ok pa ung vanilla android imo…kaya nahihirapan ang samsung na maglabas ng official na release ng update para sa phones nila kasi bumabagal dahil sa touchwiz…

    hala lagot na si cherry mobile at myphone neto. Hahaha. Go samsung! Sana wag nila babuyin ang battery nito noh. Baka sa battery to babawi. Wag naman sana. Very useful pa naman ang huge battery capacity saken. Naku po..

    • boybarog says:

      Meron po sila dinedevelop ngayon, powerbank yata tawag dun.. Di ko lang sure

    • dodong says:

      costly ba talaga pagawa ng battery na 4000mah? I mean mahirap ba yan idevelop,? Nakakabwiset kasi pag lagi naka dextrose phone mo. Tsk. Oi samsung pwede bang 2000mah nalang sana to regalo nyo samen. Ok

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      mukhang magiging android 4.4.x kitkat na rin lahat ng new local phones…. mukhang wala pa rin maapektuhan ito kasi dual core lang, puro quad na kapresyo nito sa local brands with up to 5″ HD screens pa… pero this is good para magsibaba pa lalo mga presyo ng local phones…

    • wew says:

      @dodong oo costly ang pagdevelop ng batteries,kung ung tinutukoy mo eh ung pagdedevelop ng maliliit na batteries na may mas mataas na capacity. tignan mo ung cloudfone na may mataas na battery capacity,thickness naman ang drawback niya.ung iba naman kasi ayaw sa makapal na phone kaya hinid nila tinataasan ung battery.

  3. terter says:

    wow! Sana 4k nalang para mawindang yan mga siraing disposable na cherry mobile na yan. Na trauma na ako sa flare ko na isang bagsakan lang ayaw na maopen.

  4. amber says:

    hai sa wakas, may samsung na rin na pang masa. Puro high end na kasi ginagawa nyong phone. Aminin naten, mas maraming mahirap na pinoy kaysa mayayaman no, hehehe. Sana ilabas na nila to.

  5. Mr. AssimoOverload says:

    Tax not included. Aabot yan roughly about 6 or 7k. Hahaha. mura na para sa samsung. Lalo at kitkat pa. Mpapabili dn ako neto kung 6k lang eto kahit na ung price neto equivalent sa gaming phone ng cherry mobile. Bwahaha

  6. lala^2 says:

    wow 1gb ram

  7. joey says:

    bakit s international version ng s3 na quad core at 1gb ram,di pa nila mbgay 4.4 update.haha.samantalang etong dual core na budget phone.nka kit kat n kgad. boom panes

    • bigaon says:

      baka delayed lang, yaan mo papaalala ko sa kanila

    • archie says:

      They won’t do updates for s3. Kinonfirm na nila yun.

    • Rey says:

      Ibig sabihin niloloko lang tayo ni Samsung nang sabihin nila sabhin nila na hindi nila kays mag update sa Kitkat kapag 1GB lang RAM tulad ng S3 at S3 mini. Malinaw na panlilinlang ito sa konsumer at gusto lang nila tayo bumili ng bago.

      Kaya napilitan ako mag update Cyanogenmod ang aking S3 mini. Ngayon, kahanga hanga na bilis nya at para na siya mantikilyang makinis. Di pa siya perpekto at lakas pa lumamon ng baterya. Pero isang sulyap siya sa magagawa ng Kitkat sa isang mababang telepono- na ipinagkait ng Samsung sa anumang dahilan.

  8. meh says:

    Yung flare ko, sinira ng JB Update kaya medyo useless na rin kaya buti na lang may katapat na Cherry mobile.

    • naks. Parehas tayo kuya. Cherry din phone ko dati kaya lang ayaw na mag open. Pinagawa ko sa tech pero di na naagapan. Ayoko na ng cherry mobile..trauma much na ako.

  9. al88 says:

    This one has a better chance to be available here unlike Moto, which is like a fart you can hear the hype but you can’t see it. Samsung has a better distribution system.

    • Name says:

      yeah. Samsung is the best mobile company ever. The best aftersale ever. Best fons tablets ever at a reasonable price.

    • pines says:

      Sa dami ng service centers ng samsung. Bawing bawi ka talaga sa aftersales. Both phones at laptops nila. I remembered nung nakabili ako ng defective laptop sa sulit.com then nung dinala ko service center di na sila nghanap ng resibo. They check the manufacturing date ng unit then dun na sila ngbase ng warranty; kahit na sa abroad pa nabili ang unit.. after two weeks nakuha ko agad yung laptop without paying the parts at service since within warranty p at they even told me na hanapin ang resibo para dun maibase ang warranty ng unit…

  10. Raphiduz says:

    This could be a smart choice compared to Cherry mobile phones. With 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, apps can be installed and run smoothly with this kind of specs. Lets hope na hindi lalagpas ng 5K ang price nito pagdating dito sa Pinas.

    • archie says:

      Pero bakit hindi na nila gagawan ng kitkat update ang samsung s3 na 1gb din naman ang ram at mas mataas ang specs sa proposed budget phone na ito. Sinabi naman ng google na dinesign ang kitkat to run even on 512mb ram. Just wondering dahil magandang unit din naman ang s3 minus the touchwiz.

    • wew says:

      @archie marketing strategy nila un para mapilitang bumili ng bagong phone.

  11. aksjajko says:

    First Time Samsung release a 4.3 phone at $103 and 1gb ram with rear and
    Front cam and dual sim lol

    • archie says:

      There’s a catch: Mediatek ang chipset at “Samsoong” ang brand name ng budget phone kaya mura…

  12. junecrisfrye says:

    Hmmmm good for starters and limited budget users. Hope yung battery will be excellent… Go sammy for budget phone :D

  13. Rey says:

    Tama. Isasalpak ng Samsung ang kanilang mala pagong at kahindik-hindik na ThatsWitch Interpeys. Kahit na Kitkat pa yan, magiging mabagal at masalimuot pa rin di tulad ng purong Android.

  14. jimz says:

    ok na yan 8gb ibang phone 4gb lang.

    SM-G350E
    480×800 pixel resolution
    ARM Cortex-A7 1.2 Ghz
    1 GB RAM
    8 GB
    dual-SIM

  15. robin padilla says:

    nagtataka lang ako bakit niyo pinag aaksayahan ng oras itong samsung na ito eh dami pa dyan mas maganda at mas mura kumpara dyan…
