Samsung is bringing the Galaxy A03s to more markets. After debuting in India last week, the Galaxy A03s became available for purchase in Vietnam earlier today. Customers can pick from three colors and a single memory configuration, though a second option will be coming through network operators at a later, unspecified date.
For now, Samsung is selling the Galaxy A03s with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for VND 3,690,000 ($161). Customers who may be looking for a lower price will have the option of buying the 3GB/32GB model from network operator Viettel Telecom. The 3GB model will be available for VND 3,090,000 ($135).
Regardless of which memory option you choose, you won’t be getting a lot of performance from the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset and PowerVR GE8320 graphics chip. At least not in 3D-heavy apps. So if you’re planning on playing something like Fortnite on this budget phone, you’d be much better off saving your money for a different Galaxy phone.
For its low price, the Galaxy A03s doesn’t perform miracles. But if you manage your expectations, it’s a decent phone for the budget segment. It has a triple camera setup with a 13MP main sensor and 2MP depth and macro shooters, a 6.5-inch PLS LCD 1,600 x 720 display, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a 5,000mAh battery with 15W charging. The device also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, and a microSD card slot, with two of these features being non-existent in the flagship segment.
