Here's a bit of very good news for those looking to snag Samsung's top gadgets that are currently available here in the Philippines. The Korean titan has officially slashed the local SRPs of the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7, making them more affordable to more Pinoy tech geeks. Nice!
So, what are the new prices? We'll get to that in a bit. For now, however, let's take a short intro on what the devices offer, just so you know what you'll get in case you happen to decided on buying them. The Galaxy S II is the current flagship of Samsung (but it will be replaced very soon by the Galaxy S III) and sports a dual-core 1.2GHz chip that's coupled with 1GB of RAM. It also packs a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display along with various wireless connectivity features. All that in a slim bod that measure just 8.5mm to 8.6mm thick.
The Galaxy Note, on the other hand, is Samsung's version of a smartphone-tablet hybrid that packs a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display. Similar to the Galaxy S II, this one has a 1.2GHz dual-core chip and 1GB of RAM. But the most noteworthy thing about the Galaxy Note is the fact that it comes with a stylus and the so-called S-Pen UI which offers more options in terms of input and navigation. Last but not the least, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is a, um, 7.7-inch tablet that's powered by the combo of a dual-core 1.4GHz chip and 1GB of RAM. It also hold the distinction of being the only tablet currently available that has a Super AMOLED Plus display (1280 x 800).
Now, for the new SRPs. The Galaxy S II will be offered at P24,990, down P5K from its original price while the Galaxy Note will go for P29,990 (its original SRP is P33,490). Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will set you back for P27,990, cheaper by P5,000 compared to its price before. We think the Galaxy S III has something to do with the price cut, at least for the Galaxy S II. The new prices will take effect starting this month so, be on the look out!
