Galaxy Jump price revealed before pre-orders go live this week

Some of you might recall that the Galaxy Jump moniker popped up in the Bluetooth database a month ago. Well, that smartphone is as real as it gets. Korea’s KT Shop is now getting ready to open pre-orders for the new Galaxy Jump, and prospective buyers can request a reservation and choose to be notified by text when pre-orders go live.

KT Shop will accept Galaxy Jump pre-orders beginning May 14 but it doesn’t seem to have specified when the pre-order window ends. In any case, the company will be selling the Galaxy Jump for 300,000 won ($266), and it’s seemingly marketing it as the first 5G phone to be released at this price point.

The Galaxy Jump is a rebranded Galaxy A32 5G in red

An official spec sheet pertaining to the Galaxy Jump does not yet exist, but all evidence so far indicates at this phone being a Galaxy A32 5G in disguise. The Galaxy Jump looks exactly like the Galaxy A32 5G, except it comes in a new red color.

Using the Galaxy A32 5G as a point of comparison, the Galaxy Jump should be equipped with a 6.5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1600 by 720 pixels, a MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G SoC, 128GB of storage, 4GB / 6GB / 8GB of RAM, and a quad-camera combo featuring: a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide shooter, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth camera.

There’s probably no point in asking if the Galaxy Jump will ever be released outside of South Korea — it already has, under a different name — but a new color option for the Galaxy A32 5G in other markets would be welcomed. We’ll have to wait and see if red will remain exclusive to KT Shop’s Galaxy Jump or if Samsung will eventually bring it to other markets.
