A price drop which can only be attributed with the arrival of the Note 9.
Samsung has announced a new promo that slashes up to 4,000 pesos off the prices of selected Galaxy Phones, including the Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy J6.
This follows last month’s price drop, which pulled the original SRPs of the aforementioned devices up to 2,000 pesos, as part of Samsung’s 20th-anniversary promo. Now that the Galaxy Note 9 has been announced, it looks like Samsung is willing to push that rollback even further.
That photo above is taken from a report over at YugaTech, which claims that several retail stores have confirmed that the price cuts are legitimate. Samsung has yet to confirm to Tech Rejects if this is true, so you know, take it with a grain of salt.
In the meantime, check out the specs for both the Galaxy A6 and the Galaxy J6 after the bump.
