For me the deciding factor will be the RAM speed. If it's LPDDR4, this is my next phone. If not I'll hold out for the LG G5.
TooMuch, 29 Dec 2015As a former Samsung fan, I still think Sammy is crazy with these prices...agreed !!!
galaxy S6 now available for 399 USD
It isn't cheap, yes - maybe 50 dollars less would help. But remember: R&D, marketing (massive), promotions (also massive), and maintenance of actual brick-and-mortar stores (plenty of them) aren't cheap, either. Oh and a bit of a profit margin.
A company like Xiaomi won't have any of those done anywhere near the scale of Samsung, and therefore can price their phones much lower.

Had a Mega 6.3 in my pocket, way too big and heavy...So A9 and 6" screen is out of question. Around 5" is perfect, and happy with my S6 edge
Amar Qayuum, 29 Dec 2015Oppo offer same price on phone that using sd615,still no one caresoppo looks dull & ugly. atleast a9 would look premium.
seems fake, 29 Dec 2015it seems fake . you can buy the galaxy s6 with a better processor and display in the same 500$... more200-250$???? are you insane? do you think samsung would sell this phone (which is pretty good, SD652 is great on paper, almost the same as the kirin 950) for that price? samsung is probably the most expensive company in terms of smartphones in the market, the price is usually way over the real value of the hardware
Deadpool holic, 29 Dec 2015State of the art!!! ill die cause of laughter it is state of the art in windows world & for wp users maybe! but it was funny.
skyzo97, 29 Dec 2015$200-$250? I think it will be more expensiveafter all its samesung
seems fake, 29 Dec 2015it seems fake . you can buy the galaxy s6 with a better processor and display in the same 500$... moreNo. It is real. Better processor? Snapdragon 652 is actually better than Snapdragon 800 itself. Antutu benchmark already show it score over 73,000 for a mere mid-ranger. The pricing is reasonable considering it have expandable storage and better camera compare to S6. Even the size is bigger. Which part of A9 need due to be price $200? That is BS.
Oppo offer same price on phone that using sd615,still no one cares
erm.. guys?? back camera should be 13MP right?? why suddenly become 21MP in this news
it seems fake . you can buy the galaxy s6 with a better processor and display in the same 500$ price range. mu guess. since this is a mid range device. it will be priced around 200 - 250$.
