After Samsung tippy-toed around the launch of the Galaxy A24 for a while and teased the phone through store landing pages and renders, the company finally made an official announcement this week. Indeed, after months of dealing with leaks and rumors, the Galaxy A24 is finally official, and it's coming first to Vietnam.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy A24 in Vietnam, along with availability and pricing details. The phone is now available for the starting price of VND 6,490,000 ($276), but prospective buyers can pay a little extra for a bit more RAM. The lower price corresponds to the variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For the same amount of storage but 8GB of RAM, customers are looking at VND 6,990,000 ($297).
Those who order the Galaxy A24 before May 15 also get a voucher worth VND 300,000 ($12) and a 50% price cut when buying a 25W charger. And they'll likely put this offer to good use, seeing how the Galaxy A24 doesn't ship with a wall charger.
What kind of specs does the Galaxy A24 offer?
Aside from the aforementioned memory options, the Galaxy A24 features a MediaTek Helio G99 octa-core chip and a 6.5-inch FHD Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and up to 1,000 nits of brightness.
The camera system consists of a 50MP primary shooter with OIS and enhanced VDIS (similar to the Galaxy A34 and A54), a 5MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 2MP macro unit. The selfie camera has a resolution of 13MP.
Finally, the phone is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging capabilities. Again, customers will need to buy a 25W charger before they can take advantage of those speeds.
In Vietnam, Samsung decided to release the Galaxy A24 in two color options: Lime Green and Vampire Black. And last but not least, the Galaxy A24 ships with One UI 5.1 and will benefit from four OS updates and five years of security updates.
Samsung is expected to gradually release the Galaxy A24 in more markets. Color availability will differ by region.
