MANILA, Philippines – The Samsung Galaxy A70, unveiled in April, is now available in the Philippines via Argomall for P22,990. This puts it in direct competition with the Xiaomi Mi 9, which is also priced at P22,990, and within the range of the Vivo V15 Pro priced at P23,999.
Here are its key specs:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core chip
- 6GB RAM
- 128GB internal storage
- 6.7-inch FHD+, 1080×2400, Super AMOLED Infinity-U display
- Triple rear camera: 32MP main + 8MP ultra-wide angle + 5MP depth
- 32MP front camera
- 4,500mAh battery with 25W Super Fast Charging
- Android 9.0 Pie
- On-screen fingerprint sensor
- Facial recognition
- Colors: black, blue, and white
The Galaxy A70 on paper beats out the aforementioned competition when it comes to screen size. The Vivo V15 Pro, however, boasts a notchless all-screen display with a 91.64% screen-to-body ratio while the A70 sports a teardrop notch like the Mi 9.
For cameras, meanwhile, it’s similar to the Vivo V15 Pro’s setup (48MP main + 8MP super wide-angle + 5MP depth-sensing) but the V15 Pro has a higher-resolution main shooter. The Mi 9’s set-up, comprised of a 48MP main, 16MP ultra wide-angle, and a 12MP telephoto, edges out the two if you’d like to have better telephoto capablities rather than bokeh.
